|Overview - Luke 11|
|1||Christ teaches us to pray, and that instantly;|
|11||assuring us that God will give all good things to them that ask him.|
|14||He, casting out a dumb devil, rebukes the blasphemous Pharisees;|
|27||and shows who are blessed;|
|29||preaches to the people;|
|37||and reprehends the outward shew of holiness in the Pharisees, scribes, and lawyers.|
Luke 11:20 (King James Version)
But if I with the finger of God cast out devils, no doubt the kingdom of God is come upon you.
- the finger
- Exodus 8:19 ; Matthew 12:28
- the kingdom
- For the destruction of the kingdom of Satan plainly implies the setting up of the kingdom of God. The reasoning of the Pharisees (ver. 17, ; and Matthew 12:24 ,25,) was not expressed, and Jesus knowing their thoughts, gave ample proof of his omniscience. This, with our Lord's masterly confutation of their reasonings, by a conclusion drawn from their own premises, one would have supposed might have humbled and convinced those men; but the most conclusive reasoning, and the most astonishing miracles, were lost upon a people who were obstinately determined to disbelieve every thing that was good relative to Jesus of Nazareth.
