Wesley's Notes for Matthew 19:18


19:16 And behold one came - Many of the poor had followed him from the beginning. One rich man came at last. #Mark 10:17|; Luke 18:18.

19:17 Why callest thou me good - Whom thou supposest to be only a man. There is none good - Supremely, originally, essentially, but God. If thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments - From a principle of loving faith. Believe, and thence love and obey. And this undoubtedly is the way to eternal life. Our Lord therefore does not answer ironically, which had been utterly beneath his character, but gives a plain, direct, serious answer to a serious question.

19:19 #Exod 20:12|. &c

19:20 The young man saith, All these have I kept from my childhood - So he imagined; and perhaps he had, as to the letter; but not as to the spirit, which our Lord immediately shows.


People's Bible Notes for Matthew 19:18


Mt 19:18,19 Thou shalt do no murder. The Lord passes over the first four of the ten commandments, throws the young man back to his relations with his fellow-men, compels him to give an account of his moral goodness, and after keeping the letter of the moral commands, still to confess his sense of a lack.
