Luke Chapter 17

Luke 17:4

luk 17:4



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

Luke 17:20

luk 17:20


Or, outward show.

Luke 17:21

luk 17:21

within you

in the midst of.

(Greek, "entos", means "in the midst"). It could not be said of a self-righteous, Christ rejecting pharisee, that the kingdom of God, as to its spiritual content, was within him. Our Lord's whole answer, designedly enigmatic to the Pharisees (cf) (Mat 13:10-13) had a dispensational meaning. The kingdom in its outward form, as covenanted to David (Sa2 7:8-17) and described by the prophets

(See Scofield) - (Zac 12:8)

had been rejected by the Jews; so that, during this present age, it would not "come with observation" (literally, "outward show"), but in the hearts of men.

Compare (Luk 19:11); (Luk 19:12); (Act 1:6-8).

(See Scofield) - (Act 1:6).

(See Scofield) - (Rom 14:17).

Meantime, the kingdom was actually "in the midst" of the Pharisees in the persons of the King and His disciples.
