Luke Chapter 7

Luke 7:24

luk 7:24

were departed

Having gently removed His servant's doubt, the Lord bears witness to him before others: He knows when to reprove, and where, and when, to praise.

Luke 7:34

luk 7:34



(See Scofield) - (Rom 3:23).

Luke 7:37

luk 7:37


That is, in the sense of unchaste.

Luke 7:44

luk 7:44


See (Jam 2:14-26).

When Jesus would justify the woman in the eyes of Simon, He points to her works, for only through her works could Simon see the proof of her faith; but when He would send the woman away in peace, He points to her faith, not her works.

See (Tit 2:14); (Tit 3:4-8).

His own works can never be to the believer his own ground of assurance, which must rest upon the work of Christ.

Compare (Mat 7:22); (Mat 7:23).

See "Assurance"; (Isa 32:17); (Jde 1:1).
