Kathleen Stacey's Luke Chapter 19 comment about verse 10 on 4/01/2021, 8:03pm...

Jesus, in this passage, identifies Zaccheus as a 'son of Abraham' - but which one?

Abraham had two sons, Ishmael (the son by works, who was cast out) and Isaac (the son of promise) by faith. It is the second, Isaac, and Jesus also says that 'this day, salvation has come to this house' ie Zaccheus has been born again - evidenced by his change of heart/lifestyle.

This was Jesus' mission to the Jews, and ultimately, the entire world, to show them the necessity for spiritual rebirth in order to be right with God. This is why he told Nicodemus (a teacher of the law) 'You must be born again'.

Jesus told the woman at the well, 'Those who worship God must worship Him in spirit and in truth' - this can only happen when a person is 'born of the spirit' i.e. is born again.


Bendito Palavra's Luke Chapter 19 comment about verse 27 on 3/08/2021, 8:16am...

Luke 19:27 is a warning to those who would oppose Jesus Christ. The parable illustrates Jesus ascension to his Father's throne until the time he returns to establish his kingdom. In verse 14 he said, "But his citizens hated him, and sent a message after him, saying, We will not have this man to reign over us." Likewise most of our world stands in rebellion against the coming Lord and King Jesus Christ.

Psalm 2 prophesies, "Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter's vessel." (v2:9) and, "Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him." (v2:12)
