The Book of Matthew, The Structure of The Book As A Whole
Matthew 12:1 At that time Jesus went on the Sabbath day through the
corn; and his disciples were an hungred, and began to pluck the ears of
corn, and to eat.
2 But when the Pharisees saw it, they said unto him, Behold, thy
disciples do that which is not lawful to do upon the Sabbath day.
3 But he said unto them, Have ye not read what David did, when he was an
hungred, and they that were with him;
4 How he entered into the house of God, and did eat the shew bread, which
was not lawful for him to eat, neither for them which were with him, but
only for the priests?
5 Or have ye not read in the law, how that on the Sabbath days the
priests in the temple profane the Sabbath, and are blameless?
6 But I say unto you, That in this place is one greater than the temple.
7 But if ye had known what this meaneth, I will have mercy, and not
sacrifice, ye would not have condemned the guiltless.
8 For the Son of man is Lord even of the Sabbath day.
9 And when he was departed thence, he went into their synagogue:
10 And, behold, there was a man which had his hand withered. And they
asked him, saying, Is it lawful to heal on the Sabbath days? that they
might accuse him.
11 And he said unto them, What man shall there be among you, that shall
have one sheep, and if it fall into a pit on the Sabbath day, will he
not lay hold on it, and lift it out?
12 How much then is a man better than a sheep? Wherefore it is lawful to
do well on the Sabbath days.
13 Then saith he to the man, Stretch forth thine hand. And he stretched
it forth; and it was restored whole, like as the other.
14 Then the Pharisees went out, and held a council against him, how they
might destroy him.
15 But when Jesus knew it, he withdrew himself from thence: and great
multitudes followed him, and he healed them all;
16 And charged them that they should not make him known:
17 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet,
This is exactly the reason they wanted to kill
He was doing good works they weren't capable of
18 Behold my servant, whom I have chosen; my beloved, in whom my soul is
well pleased: I will put my spirit upon him, and he shall shew judgment
to the Gentiles.
19 He shall not strive, nor cry; neither shall any man hear his voice in
All peoples = I will put my spirit upon him, and
he shall shew judgment to the Gentiles.
This is the Father speaking of the Son.
Wherever the Father and the son are, the Holy
Spirit is also present.
20 A bruised reed shall he not break, and smoking flax shall he not
quench, till he send forth judgment unto victory.
Jesus walked right into the church to make His
That is where the Pharisees would be found.
21 And in his name shall the Gentiles trust.
A bruised reed is just barely hanging on.
Have you ever been at a point in your life that
you were barely handing on?
Jesus can heal broken bodies and broken hearts.
He can trim your wick to make your life brighter
without ever quenching the flame, if you don't
try to quench the Holy Spirit.
Give yourself to Him.
Jesus was quoting Isaiah.
When Jesus quotes Scripture in the Old
Testament, you always want to check it out.
Isaiah 40:11 He shall feed his flock like
a shepherd: he shall gather the lambs with his
arm, and carry them in his bosom, and
shall gently lead those that are with young.
Isaiah 61:1 The Spirit of the Lord GOD
is upon me; because the LORD hath anointed
me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath
sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to
proclaim liberty to the captives, and the
opening of the prison to them that are
Isaiah 42:1 Behold my servant, whom I
uphold; mine elect, in whom my soul
delighteth; I have put my spirit upon him: he
shall bring forth judgment to the Gentiles.
2 He shall not cry, nor lift up, nor cause his voice to be heard in the street.
3 A bruised reed shall he not break, and the smoking flax shall he not quench:
he shall bring forth judgment unto truth.
22 Then was brought unto him one possessed with a devil, blind, and
dumb: and he healed him, insomuch that the blind and dumb both spake and
23 And all the people were amazed, and said, Is not this the son of
24 But when the Pharisees heard it, they said, This fellow doth not cast
out devils, but by Beelzebub the prince of the devils.
25 And Jesus knew their thoughts, and said unto them, Every kingdom
divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house
divided against itself shall not stand:
26 And if Satan cast out Satan, he is divided against himself; how shall
then his kingdom stand?
Jesus knew their thoughts
27 And if I by Beelzebub cast out devils, by whom do your children cast
them out? therefore they shall be your judges.
28 But if I cast out devils by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of
God is come unto you.
29 Or else how can one enter into a strong man's house, and spoil his
goods, except he first bind the strong man? and then he will spoil his
30 He that is not with me is against me; and he that gathereth not with
me scattereth abroad.
31 Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be
forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be
forgiven unto men.
32 And whosoever speaketh a word against the Son of man, it shall be
forgiven him: but whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost, it shall
not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the world to
33 Either make the tree good, and his fruit good; or else make the tree
corrupt, and his fruit corrupt: for the tree is known by his fruit.
34 O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things?
for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh.
35 A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good
things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil
36 But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they
shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.
37 For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt
38 Then certain of the scribes and of the Pharisees answered, saying,
Master, we would see a sign from thee.
39 But he answered and said unto them, An evil and adulterous generation
seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given to it, but the
sign of the prophet Jonas:
40 For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale's belly; so
shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the
41 The men of Nineveh shall rise in judgment with this generation, and
shall condemn it: because they repented at the preaching of Jonas; and,
behold, a greater than Jonas is here.
42 The queen of the south shall rise up in the judgment with this
generation, and shall condemn it: for she came from the uttermost parts
of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and, behold, a greater than
Solomon is here.
43 When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry
places, seeking rest, and findeth none.
1 king 10:1 And when the queen of Sheba
heard of the fame of Solomon concerning the name
of the Lord, she came to prove him with hard
2 And she came to Jerusalem with a very great
train, with camels that bare spices, and very
much gold, and precious stones: and when she was
come to Solomon, she communed with him of all
that was in her heart.
3 And Solomon told her all her questions: there
was not any thing hid from the king, which he
told her not.
4 And when the queen of Sheba had seen all
Solomon's wisdom, and the house that he had
44 Then he saith, I will return into my house from whence I came out;
and when he is come, he findeth it empty, swept, and garnished.
45 Then goeth he, and taketh with himself seven other spirits more
wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last
state of that man is worse than the first. Even so shall it be also unto
this wicked generation.
46 While he yet talked to the people, behold, his mother and his
brethren stood without, desiring to speak with him.
47 Then one said unto him, Behold, thy mother and thy brethren stand
without, desiring to speak with thee.
48 But he answered and said unto him that told him, Who is my mother?
and who are my brethren?
49 And he stretched forth his hand toward his disciples, and said,
Behold my mother and my brethren!
50 For whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in heaven, the
same is my brother, and sister, and mother.
