Chapter 17

17:4  And if he trespass against thee seven times in a day, and seven times in a day turn again to thee, saying, I repent; thou shalt forgive him.

trespass

Sin. (See Scofield "Romans 3:23") .

17:20  And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with observation:

observation

Or, outward show.

17:21  Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.

(Greek - entos [eÍnto/v] = "in the midst)." It could not be said of a self-righteous, Christ rejecting pharisee, that the kingdom of God, as to its spiritual content, was within him. Our Lord's whole answer, designedly enigmatic to the Pharisees (cf) Matthew 13:10-13 had a dispensational meaning. The kingdom in its outward form, as covenanted to David 2 Samuel 7:8-17 and described by the prophets (See Scofield "Zechariah 12:8") had been rejected by the Jews; so that, during this present age, it would not "come with observation" (lit. "outward show") but in the hearts of men (cf) ; Luke 19:11,12; Acts 1:6-8.

(See Scofield "Acts 1:6") . See Scofield "Romans 14:17.

Meantime, the kingdom was actually "in the midst" of the Pharisees in the persons of the King and His disciples.

within you in the midst of.

17:22  And he said unto the disciples, The days will come, when ye shall desire to see one of the days of the Son of man, and ye shall not see it.

Son of man

(See Scofield "Matthew 8:20") .

17:26  And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man.

Son of man

(See Scofield "Matthew 8:20") .

17:30  Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.

Son of man

(See Scofield "Matthew 8:20") .

17:37  And they answered and said unto him, Where, Lord? And he said unto them, Wheresoever the body is, thither will the eagles be gathered together.

Wheresoever

See "Armageddon" Revelation 16:14; 19:17. (See Scofield "Revelation 19:17") .
