An other Christian WordPress.com site – Een andere Christelijke WordPress.com site

In Matthews 14th chapter we look at the Tetrarch Herod, the son of Herod the Great by Malthace, and see how he falls for his sister-in-law and the violent rejection of the son of man Jeshua (Jesus) the Christ. we get Herod’s opinion of Jesus, and a parenthetical account of his murder of John the Baptist. Parallel passages: Mark 6:14-29; Luke:7-9; Luke 3:19, Luke 3:20.

The fact of the Nazarene his rejection by man is now a governing thought; and this involves rejection for his people, and a path in separation from a world in estrangement from him. This is especially what characterises the next portion of the Gospel which developer for us the features of a day of rejection; but in which grace still works, and finds among men not its objects only but its instruments. But the world is at the same time on the one hand a desert, on the other a stormy sea. Soon Jesus himself also is absent, and his disciples are left in the darkness, toiling over the waters in the face of the adverse wind. But again there is a change: He is coming back to them over the waters; and faith, discerning him and seeking to be with him, is fain to leave the boat and at his invitation walk upon the waters too to go to him. Here the Church’s path is clearly presented to us, the boat imaging the position of that remnant of Israel which as to their hopes the disciples were, when he went away, and to which (accompanied by his heavenly people) he will again return. Then the wind ceases, and the boat having reached the shore, mercy flows out to men far and wide as it will in millennial days. Let us now seek to apprehend this in detail.
