Geneva Notes on Matthew 10:34-11:1

Mt 10:34
10:34 {8} Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I
came not to send peace, but a sword.

(8) Civil dissentions follow the preaching of the gospel.

Mt 10:37
10:37 {9} He that loveth father or mother more than me is not
worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than
me is not worthy of me.

(9) Without exception, nothing is to be preferred before our
duty to God.

Mt 10:39
10:39 He that {p} findeth his life shall lose it: and he that
loseth his life for my sake shall find it.

(p) They are said to find their life, who deliver it out
of danger: and this is spoken against the opinion of
the people, who think those that die are certainly
lost, because they think not of the life to come.

Mt 10:40
10:40 {10} He that receiveth you receiveth me, and he that
receiveth me receiveth him that sent me.

(10) God is both author and revenger of his holy ministry.

Mt 10:41
10:41 {11} He that receiveth a prophet in {q} the name of a
prophet shall receive a prophet's reward; and he that
receiveth a righteous man in the name of a righteous man
shall receive a righteous man's reward.

(11) We will lose nothing that is bestowed on Christ.
(q) As a Prophet.

Mt 10:42
10:42 And whosoever shall give to drink unto one of these {r}
little ones a cup of cold [water] only in the name of a
disciple, verily I say unto you, he shall in no wise lose
his reward.

(r) Who in the sight of the world are vile and abject.

Mt 11:1
11:1 And {1} it came to pass, when Jesus had made an end of {a}
commanding his twelve disciples, he departed thence to
teach and to preach in {b} their cities.

(1) Christ shows by his works that he is the promised Messiah.
(a) Of instructing them with precepts.
(b) The disciples' cities, that is to say, in Galilee,
where many of them were born; Ac 2:7.
