    SEV Biblia, Chapter 20:46

    Guardaos de los escribas, que quieren andar con ropas largas, y aman las salutaciones en las plazas, y las primeras sillas en las sinagogas, y los primeros asientos en las cenas;

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Luke 20:46

    Verse 46.
    Beware of the scribes] Take heed that ye be not seduced by those who should show you the way of salvation. See on Matt. xxiii. 4-14.

    1. How it can be supposed that the ancient Jewish Church had no distinct notion of the resurrection of the dead is to me truly surprising. The justice of God, so peculiarly conspicuous under the old covenant, might have led the people to infer that there must be a resurrection of the dead, if even the passage to which our Lord refers had not made a part of their law. As the body makes a part of the man, justice requires that not only they who are martyrs for the testimony of God, but also all those who have devoted their lives to his service, and died in his yoke, should have their bodies raised again. The justice of God is as much concerned in the resurrection of the dead, as either his power or mercy. To be freed from earthly incumbrances, earthly passions, bodily infirmities, sickness; and death, to be brought into a state of conscious existence, with a refined body and a sublime soul, both immortal, and both ineffably happy-how glorious the privilege! But of this, who shall be counted worthy in that day? Only those who have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb, and who, by patient continuing in well doing, have sought for glory and honour and immortality.

    2. A bad example, supported by the authority, reputation, and majesty of religion, is a very subtle poison, from which it is very difficult for men to preserve themselves. It is a great misfortune for any people to be obliged to beware of those very persons who ought to be their rule and pattern.

    This is a reflection of pious Father Quesnel; and, while we admire its depth, we may justly lament that the evil he refers to should be so prevalent as to render the observation, and the caution on which it is founded, so necessary. But let no man imagine that bad and immoral ministers are to be found among one class of persons only. They are to be found in the branches as well as in the root: in the different sects and parties as well as in the mother or national Churches, from which the others have separated. On either hand there is little room for glorying.-Professors and ministers may change, but the truth of the Lord abideth for ever!


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 46. Beware of the Scribes , etc.] And also of the Pharisees; for they are joined together in Matthew: which desire to walk in long robes : the rule for the length of a scholar's garment was this f645 ; his flesh must not appear under his garments, as the light linen garments, and the like, they make in Egypt; nor must his garments be drawn upon the ground, as the garments of proud men, but must reach to his heel, and his glove must reach the top of his fingers.

    According to this rule, the garments of the doctors were to be so long as to cover the whole body, even down to their heels, but were not to be any longer; and by this it appears their garments were very long; but they did not always go by this rule; some had their garments so long as to have a train after them; (see Gill on Matthew 23:5) and love greetings in the markets ; or in courts of judicature; they loved to be saluted with the titles of Rabbi, Master, and the like: and the highest seats in the synagogues ; which were next to the place where the book of the law was read and expounded, and where they might be seen by the people: and the chief rooms at feasts ; the uppermost; (see Gill on Matthew 23:6) and (see Gill on Matthew 23:7).


    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 39-47 - The scribes commended the reply Christ made to the Sadducees about the resurrection, but they were silenced by a question concerning the Messiah. Christ, as God, was David's Lord; but Christ, as man, wa David's son. The scribes would receive the severest judgement for defrauding the poor widows, and for their abuse of religion particularly of prayer, which they used as a pretence for carrying of worldly and wicked plans. Dissembled piety is double sin. Then let u beg of God to keep us from pride, ambition, covetousness, and ever evil thing; and to teach us to seek that honour which comes from his alone __________________________________________________________________
