Scofield's Reference Notes

Luke 14

Verse 15


See note, (See Scofield " :-") .

Verse 26


All terms which define the emotions or affections are comparative. Natural affection is to be, as compared with the believer's devotedness to Christ, as if it were hate. See Matthew 12:47-40.12.50 where Christ illustrates this principle in His own person. But in the Lord the natural affections are sanctified and lifted to the level of the divine love (cf) ; John 19:26; John 19:27; Ephesians 5:25-49.5.28.
