The Treasury of Scripture Knowledge

Chapter Overview
 
1Christ teaches us to pray, and that instantly;
11assuring us that God will give all good things to them that ask him.
14He, casting out a dumb devil, rebukes the blasphemous Pharisees;
27and shows who are blessed;
29preaches to the people;
37and reprehends the outward shew of holiness in the Pharisees, scribes, and lawyers.

the kingdom
For the destruction of the kingdom of Satan plainly implies the setting up of the kingdom of God. The reasoning of the Pharisees (ver. 17, and Mt 12:24, 25,) was not expressed, and Jesus knowing their thoughts, gave ample proof of his omniscience. This, with our Lord's masterly confutation of their reasonings, by a conclusion drawn from their own premises, one would have supposed might have humbled and convinced those men; but the most conclusive reasoning, and the most astonishing miracles, were lost upon a people who were obstinately determined to disbelieve every thing that was good relative to Jesus of Nazareth.
