Treasury of Scripture

And he began to say to them, This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears.

This day.

Luke 10:23,24
And he turned him unto his disciples, and said privately, Blessed are the eyes which see the things that ye see: …

Matthew 13:14
And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Esaias, which saith, By hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and shall not perceive:

John 4:25,26
The woman saith unto him, I know that Messias cometh, which is called Christ: when he is come, he will tell us all things…









(21) This day is this scripture fulfilled.--It is obvious that we have here only the opening, words of the sermon preached on the text from Isaiah. There must have been more than this, remembered too vaguely for record, to explain the admiration of which the next clause speaks. But this was what startled them: He had left them as the son of the carpenter--mother, brethren, sisters were still among them--and now He came back claiming to be the Christ, and to make words that had seemed to speak of a far-off glorious dream, as a living and present reality.
