Matthew 22

April 12, 2013

Here’s how the study works: Read the chapter mentioned in the heading several times during the week and share any words, thoughts, verses that stood out to you. Having a week for a chapter creates the opportunity to reread it several times and make additional comments as you feel inclined as well as make comments on other people’s insights.

  1. v.9 So go to the street corners and invite to the banquet anyone you find.

    We live in the period when the invitation is still going out.

  3. v. 12 He asked, ‘How did you get in here without wedding clothes, friend?’ The man was speechless.

    While there is a general “call” there is also an individual response required. The Jews saw themselves as a “called” people or a chosen people but God also required an individual response from each of them.

  5. v. 22 When they heard this, they were amazed. So they left him and went away.

    Just like the sacrificial lambs were examined to make sure there was no spot or blemish, the Lamb of God is examined by his opponents but they were not able to fault him.

  7. v.24 “Teacher,” they said, “Moses told us that if a man dies without having children, his brother must marry the widow and raise up offspring for him.

    The Sadducees never thought or seemed to care about the purpose of the law. This law protected women who were widowed early in their life and gave them economic security.

  9. v.42 “What do you think about the Messiah? Whose son is he?”

    Jesus asked questions to make the Pharisees realize their arguments were not logical. Jesus doesn’t give them all the information. Just leaves the question hanging out there.

  11. v.43 He said to them, “How is it then that David, speaking by the Spirit, calls him ‘Lord’?

    (From Constable Commentary) Jesus pointed out that the Pharisees' answer contained a problem. How could Messiah be David's son if David called Him his Lord?… Jesus was bringing together the concepts that Messiah was the human son of David and the divine Son of God.
