Excerpt from The Words of the Lord Jesus, Vol. 3 The incident here recorded belongs evidently to the close of that last journey to Jerusalem, of which St Luke gives so detailed an account, interweaving, at the same time, other things with it. But the same Evangelist, inasmuch as he has already, at chap. Xvi. Ver. 18, adduced an earlier repetition of Christ's principal saying on the subject of divorce, now only mentions the children who were brought to Him; this, however, evidently brings him into harmony with the other Evangelists. There is a consider able interval then between Matthew chap. Xviii. And chap. Xix.; for from chap. Xix. Onwards to xx. 17 xxi. 1, all is closely connected. To this interval must be assigned the raising of Lazarus, on the remarkable omission of which we shall speak in our interpretation of St John. The departing from Galilee and coming to J udea beyond J ordan, - in which St Matthew and St Mark agree - corresponds, therefore, with what is said at John xi. 7 x. 40; comp. Also here ver. 2 with John x. 41, 42. Probably St Matthew includes under these sayings, in the wider sense, the collective sayings of Christ in Galilee now completed; for he often thus thoughtfully sums up particulars in general statements: see, e.g., at the very outset, chap. I. 1, the title to the genealogy, forming at the same time the title to the whole book. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
