Treasury of Scripture

And Jesus said, Are you also yet without understanding?

Matthew 15:10
And he called the multitude, and said unto them, Hear, and understand:

Matthew 13:51
Jesus saith unto them, Have ye understood all these things? They say unto him, Yea, Lord.

Matthew 16:9,11
Do ye not yet understand, neither remember the five loaves of the five thousand, and how many baskets ye took up? …









(16) Are ye also yet without understanding?--The pronoun is emphatic: "Ye, My disciples, who have heard from My lips the spiritual nature of My kingdom, are ye too, like the Pharisees, still such backward scholars?"

Verse 16. - Are ye also yet without understanding? Even yet; ἀκμήν: adhuc. In spite of all that has passed - my teaching, my life, my miracles - do you not understand in what real purity consists? Often had Jesus to complain of the dulness of his disciples' intelligence, the slow appreciation of his meaning, the indifference to the spiritual side of his acts and doctrine. Up to the very last they failed to apprehend his mission; nor was it till the Day of Pentecost, when the Holy Spirit was poured upon them, that they really and in fulness understood the Lord's teaching and their own duties and powers.
