Matthew 19:27-29 – The Nazarene’s Commentary: We Have Left Everything for You!

Matthew 19:27-29 – We Have Left Everything for You!

|| Mark 10:28-30; Luke 18:28-30

MT19:27 Then Peter responded to Jesus, “Look! We [apostles] have left everything behind[1] and followed you! Truthfully, what will there be for us?”[2] MT19:28 But, Jesus told them, “I tell you [apostles] this truth: In the New Genesis[3] [Job 14:14 LXX] – when the Son of Humankind is gloriously enthroned [Daniel 7:13, 14] [for the Judgment][4] – those who have followed me[5] will also sit upon twelve thrones judging[6] the twelve tribes of Israel.[7] MT19:29 Everyone who leaves behind[8] houses, brothers, sisters, father, mother, children, or fields[9] because of my name[10] will receive many times more:[11] he will inherit everlasting life.[12]

*

[1] We [apostles] have left everything behind: Or, KJV: we have forsaken all; KNX: and what of us who have forsaken all; BECK: we gave up everything. We must ponder this emotional outburst by Peter as if he need assure his Master. Jesus had told the young rabbi to sell everything and give to the poor. Had Peter and the others actually done that? We know they “left” their fishing boats with family, but had they sold all? Note that after the death of Jesus the apostles have returned to their fishing business. Indeed, the Risen Lord must ask Peter what he loved most: Jesus or the fishing business (John 21:3-19). We may suspect Peter and the others had not done as Luke 12:32, 33 directed the “little flock.” However, observe that in the Book of Acts all the disciples have sold everything as Jesus directed and then distributed to the needy (Acts 2-4).

[2] Truthfully, what will there be for us: Or, KNX: what is left for us; RIEU: what shall we get by that; WEY: what then shall be our reward; PME: what is that going to be worth to us. The idea is probably: “what will be our lot?”

[3] In the New Genesis: The Greek is PALIN(=again)GENESIA(=genesis). Or, KJV: regeneration; RSV: new world; KNX: new birth; RIEU: when the world is born anew; NEB: in the world that is to be; MON New Creation; WMS: new order of life; BER: new age; AMP: birth of the world. We know the Nazarene originally spoke these words in Hebrew (Aramaic) and Matthew later translated these words into Greek. In the Jewish Greek Septuagint of the second century BC a very similar phrase is found in Job 14:14, PALIN GENOMAI. This whole verse is rendered in Bagster’s: “I will wait until I exist again.” Translations based on the Hebrew text read: KJV: till my change come; NJB: for my relief to come; ASV: till my release should come. In this same context the root for the word “resurrection” also occurs: ANASTE (“rise again”) and the root to “memorial tomb” (or, memorium) – MNEIAN (“remember me”) (Job 14:12, 13). The context is surely that of the resurrection and the after-life. Based on this the “new genesis” may refer to the resurrection in general and specifically that time when Messiah and his associate judges (1 Corinthians 6:2; Revelation 20:4) judge all resurrected mankind (Revelation 20:5, 12-14; Acts 24:15). {the Lord’s people judging the world + resurrection of both the righteous and the wicked + 1000 years}

A similar phrase occurs in Peter’s writings: “Blessed be The God… who gave us a new genesis (ANA[=again]GENESAS[=genesis]) a living hope by means of the resurrection of Jesus.” (1 Peter 1:3) Judging from 1 Peter 1:23 this seems limited to that “new birth” following the justification of the saint (James 1:18; John 3:3-5).

[4] When the Son of Humankind is gloriously enthroned [for the Judgment]: This is an interpretive paraphrase. Similar language occurs in Matthew 25:31 but there the King comes with his angels (and without his Saints), for this is the parousia-Judgment. Compare Daniel 12:2; John 5:29; 2 Corinthians 5:10; 1 John 2:28; 1 John 4:17. We feel this phrase has a prophetic context related to the Thousand Years or thereafter (Revelation 20:4-6, 12-14; 1 Corinthians 6:2; Acts 17:31; Luke 22:30).

[5] Those who have followed me: Read and prayerfully meditate upon 1 Peter 2:21 and Revelation 14:4.

[6] Sit upon twelve thrones judging: Though there are more than twelve judges (1 Corinthians 6:2; Revelation 20:4) the Nazarene here concentrates on his “little flock” – his apostles (Luke 12:32). Note the foundation stones of the New Jerusalem in Revelation 21:12-14. There can be no question the original “twelve” (including Matthias) hold a paramount position in the Father’s Kingdom.

[7] Twelve tribes of Israel: We feel this refers to the many millions of Israelites and Jews during: a) the Thousand Year judgment (Isaiah 65:17-23); and, b) the last judgment at the general resurrection of all humankind (Acts 17:31; 24:15; Isaiah 26:19 LXX; Revelation 20:5, 12-14; compare Romans 2:12-16; Hebrews 6:2; 9:27; 1 Corinthians 15:20-24).

[8] Everyone who leaves behind: Or, KJV: every one that hath forsaken; ASV: hath left. Jesus exemplified this and his apostles thereafter. Compare also Paul’s example (Philippians 3:8, 13).

[9] Houses, brothers, sisters, father, mother, children, or fields: Mark 10:29 adds, “… houses… for the sake of the good news.” Luke 18:29 adds, “… wife…” Luke 18:30 adds, “… get many times more in this period of time.”

[10] Because of my name: We note this is the name of Jesus and not his Father, Yehowah.

[11] Will receive many times more: Or, KJV: receive an hundredfold; RIEU: shall be many times repaid; BER: shall be refunded a hundred times.

[12] Everlasting life: See notes else where on the phrase ageless life or everlasting life.

  • Question: If His Name Was Yeshua, Why Call Him Jesus? (spyghana.com)
    Some people claim that our Lord should not be referred to as “Jesus.” Instead, we should only use the name “Yeshua.” Some even go so far as to say that calling Him “Jesus” is blasphemous. Others go into great detail about how the name “Jesus” is unbiblical because the letterJis a modern invention and there was no letterJin Greek or Hebrew.Yeshuais the Hebrew name, and its English spelling is “Joshua.”Iesousis the Greek transliteration of the Hebrew name, and its English spelling is “Jesus.” Thus, the names “Joshua” and “Jesus” are essentially the same; both are English pronunciations of the Hebrew and Greek names for our Lord. (For examples of how the two names are interchangeable, seeActs 7:45 and Hebrews 4:8 in the KJV. In both cases, the wordJesusrefers to the Old Testament character Joshua.) Changing the language of a word does not affect the meaning of the word
    +
    If a person speaks and reads English, it is acceptable for him to spell things in an English fashion. Spellings can change even within a language: Americans write “Savior,” while the British write “Saviour.” The addition of au(or its subtraction, depending on your point of view) has nothing to do with whom we’re talking about. Jesus is the Savior, and He is the Saviour.JesusandYeshuahandIesusare all referring to the same Person.
  • Is the Name “Jesus” Anti-Semitic? (greenbaggins.wordpress.com)
    It has been argued by some people in the HRM that the English name “Jesus” is Anti-Semitic. I intend to show that this is false. It is not inherently any more Anti-Semitic than the name would be translated into any other language on the face of the earth. To illustrate the point, I will use a word completely on the opposite end of the spectrum of attractiveness: “nigger.” Some people, for instance, would probably call me racist even for bringing up this word. However, what if I used the word this way: “Anyone who uses the term ‘nigger’ today to describe an African-American is a racist.” I’m using the word, yes, but how am I using it? I am using the term to encourage people not to call African-Americans by that term, which they tend to find offensive. The word is not the same thing as how it is used, and it does not inherently convey a clear meaning all by itself. The word could be used in a racist way by one person and in a non-racist way by someone else.

  • The Peace of the Lord – Sermon for December 29, 2013 (pastorrichert.wordpress.com)
    As with so much of our Lord’s Word, the world around us cannot understand true peace – and as our Lord’s children, we must be vigilant so that we do not allow a false understanding of true peace twist our Lord’s promise.  Peace according to the world is nothing more than the absence of anything troubling or agitating.  But peace as the absence of bad things is no true peace, for there will always be more bad things threatening to wrench this so-called peace away from us.  The world’s peace is fraught with uncertainty.  True peace, the peace that the angels announced on that first Christmas, is the Hebrew word shalom, and it means much more than the simple absence of strife or conflict.  Shalom, true peace, includes the presence of everything that our Lord would give to us.  It is the establishment of the life that our Lord would have us live.

  • The Living Word (xntricproductions.wordpress.com)
    Just as YHWH has again drawn close to us and enabled us to have relationship and communication with him. YHWH has also placed his law and his Holy Spirit inside us and cleansed us with the blood of his son Yeshua. YHWH has made a way for us in all things. We should be honored to honor him. Now if we make a mistake we have forgiveness through Yeshua. Yet God’s grace should not be an excuse for us to sin or live according to our own rules and desires.
    +
    Yeshua’s one time sacrifice enables us to be washed clean of our sins and forgiven when we make mistakes. We are no longer under the bondage of sin and subject to the wages of sin that are death.
    We, all of us, through Yeshua have the ability upon accepting him as our savior to be forgiven for our sins and have a restored relationship with YHWH (God). Yeshua is now our high priest and our prayers and offerings go to God through Yeshua. We have also been given the Holy Spirit so that we do not have to try to understand and obey God on our own power. Instead the Holy Spirit of God lives within us, strengthening us, directing us, guiding us, leading us to live an obedient life with YHWH (God).
  • It is strange that in the tile of The LORD Sits #ThroneOfGod #YHWH #Jesus #TheLORDsits (mrpatvincent.com) appears next to God His name, the more common Anglicised name of Jeshua. Though Jesus Christ is not YHWH, the Adonai Elohim Hashem Jehovah, but is the Creator His son. Jesus is not sitting on His Throne, but at the right hand of God Who is The Absolute Power, and without Jesus could do nothing. though the writer of the article herself writes: “He is the Power of the Power. There is none above and all below.” but than is confused between the two entities, on the one hand the eternal Spirit God and on the other hand the man of flesh and blood who really died, while God can not die.
  • A Voice in the Wasteland: “What would you name Jesus – G-Zus?” (thejaggedword.com)
    On January 1st many Christians celebrate the circumcision and naming of Jesus as recorded in Luke 2:21.  It rings ironic to celebrate such a transgression on someone’s individual rights; naming said individual and taking a knife to his genitalia. But as my friend, the Rev. Koch said, “The church can be a dangerous place.”
  • Though many don’t value pigeons, doves are important in the Holy Bible. (rockdoveblog.wordpress.com)
    The rock dove (a/k/a pigeon) is perhaps the most underappreciated yet ubiquitous birds of the world.  Yet God the Holy Spirit descended upon the Lord Jesus Christ “like a dove” (Matthew 3:16-17) at the Lord’s baptism, and examples of the dove family were used as sacrificial offerings in Mary’s purification ceremony,  after Christ’s circumcision (Luke 2:22-24, following Leviticus 12:8).
