V. 10-13 All through the Old Testament, the serious-minded men tried to find out the secret of the Christ Who was to come. Even the prophets read over what they had written, in order to try to find out the meaning of the words about the sufferings of Christ. They could understand that this coming One was to be great, but couldn't understand the part about His sufferings. (Read Luke 24:2525Then he said unto them, O fools, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken: (Luke 24:25) & 26, 44, 46). Even the angels tried to find out. Does this not thrill us!
V. 1446 The believer has a new life to live, he leaves the old life behind him.
V. 1849 "Redeemed" means to be "bought back". The Lord Jesus bought us back for God. The cost was His precious blood.
V. 22 "Obeying" is mentioned for the third time in this chapter. If we obey, we will love all other believers, for they are God's children.
