CHAPTER 14

      Mt 14:1-12. HEROD THINKS JESUS A RESURRECTION OF THE MURDERED BAPTIST--ACCOUNT OF HIS IMPRISONMENT AND DEATH. ( = Mr 6:14-29; Lu 9:7-9).

      The time of this alarm of Herod Antipas appears to have been during the mission of the Twelve, and shortly after the Baptist--who had been in prison for probably more than a year--had been cruelly put to death.

      Herod's Theory of the Works of Christ (Mt 14:1, 2).

      1. At that time Herod the tetrarch--Herod Antipas, one of the three sons of Herod the Great, and own brother of Archelaus (Mt 2:22), who ruled as ethnarch over Galilee and Perea.
      heard of the fame of Jesus--"for His name was spread abroad" (Mr 6:14).

      2. And said unto his servants--his counsellors or court-ministers.
      This is John the Baptist: he is risen from the dead, &c.--The murdered prophet haunted his guilty breast like a specter and seemed to him alive again and clothed with unearthly powers in the person of Jesus.

      Account of the Baptist's Imprisonment and Death (Mt 14:3-12). For the exposition of this portion, see on Mr 6:17-29.

      Mt 14:12-21. HEARING OF THE BAPTIST'S DEATH, JESUS CROSSES THE LAKE WITH TWELVE, AND MIRACULOUSLY FEEDS FIVE THOUSAND. ( = Mr 6:30-44; Lu 9:10-17; Joh 6:1-14).

      For the exposition of this section--one of the very few where all the four Evangelists run parallel--see on Mr 6:30-44.

      Mt 14:22-26. JESUS CROSSES TO THE WESTERN SIDE OF THE LAKE WALKING ON THE SEA--INCIDENTS ON LANDING. ( = Mr 6:45; Joh 6:15-24).

      For the exposition, see on Joh 6:15-24.

      28. And Peter answered him and said, Lord, if it is thou, bid me come to thee on the water--(Also see on Mr 6:50.)

      29. And he said, Come. And when Peter had come down out of the boat. he walked on the water, to go to Jesus--(Also see on Mr 6:50.)

      30. But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me--(Also see on Mr 6:50.)

      31. And immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand, and caught him, and said to him, O thou of little faith, why didst thou doubt?--(Also see on Mr 6:50.)

      32. And when they had come into the boat, the wind ceased--(Also see on Mr 6:50.)
