GOVERNMENTS(:7-9)

—Explanation:(:7-9) King/Legislation/Opposition/Curiosity

“Herod”—Herod Antipas(4AD—39AD), a son of Herod the Great(37BC—4AD) ruler at Jesus’ birth. Antipas ruled Galilee & Perea—From Jerusalem northward on both sides of the Jordan.

“The tetrarch”—Ruler of a fourth part.

“Perplexed”—diaporew—At a loss

“Because it was said”—Grassroots effectiveness

:8—“& by some that Elijah had appeared, & by others, that one of the prophets of old had risen again.”

:9—“And Herod said, “I myself had John beheaded; but who is this man about whom I hear such things?” And he kept trying to see Him.”

“He kept trying to see Him”—Govt. must deal with rivals.

—Argumentation:

Acts 5:26-29—“And when they had brought them, they stood them before the Council. And the high priest questioned them, saying, “We gave you strict orders not to continue teaching in this name, & behold, you have filled Jerusalem with your teaching, & intend to bring this man’s blood upon us.” But Peter & the apostles answered & said, “We must obey God rather than men.”

Lk. 21:12—“But before all these things, they will lay their hands on you & will persecute you, delivering you to the synagogues & prisons, bringing you before kings & governors for My name’s sake.”

“Heard of all that was happening”—Jesus’ emissaries

:8—“& by some that Elijah had appeared, & by others, that one of the prophets of old had risen again.”

“Elijah”—

Mal. 4:5-6—“Behold, I am going to send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great & terrible day of the LORD. And he will restore the hearts of the fathers to their children, & the hearts of the children to their fathers, lest I come & smite the land with a curse.”

Mat. 11:13-14—“For all the prophets & the Law prophesied until John. “And if you care to accept it, he himself is Elijah, who was to come.”

Mat. 17:10-13—“And His disciples asked Him, saying, “Why then do the scribes say that Elijah must come first?” And He answered & said, “Elijah is coming & will restore all things; but I say to you, that Elijah already came, & they did not recognize him, but did to him whatever they wished. So also the Son of Man is going to suffer at their hands.” Then the disciples understood that He had spoken to them about John the Baptist.”

“Prophets of old”—Declarers of God’s will in power.

Jn. 9:17—“They said therefore to the blind man again, “What do you say about Him, since He opened your eyes?” And he said, “He is a prophet.”

All Opinions tied in with God’s movement!

—Argumentation:

Mat. 16:13-17—“Now when Jesus came into the district of Caesarea Philippi, He began asking His disciples, saying, “Who do people say that the Son of Man is?” And they said, “Some say John the Baptist; & others, Elijah; but still others, Jeremiah, or one of the prophets.” He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?” And Simon Peter answered & said, “Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.” And Jesus answered & said to him, “Blessed are you, Simon Barjona, because flesh & blood did not reveal this to you, but My Father who is in heaven.”

1Cor. 2:4-5—“And my message & my preaching were not in persuasive words of wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit & of power, that your faith should not rest on the wisdom of men, but on the power of God.”
