Our Lord's action here is most significant, Having abandoned Bethsaida to judgment Matthew 11:12-24. He would neither heal in that village, nor permit further testimony to be borne there Mark 8:26. The probation of Bethsaida as a community was ended, but He would still show mercy to individuals. Cf Revelation 3:20.

Christ is outside the door of that church, but "If any man hear My voice," etc.

Verse 31

Son of man

(See Scofield " :-") Also, Matthew 16:21-28; Mark 9:31; Luke 9:22-27; Luke 24:6

Verse 38

sinful Sin. (See Scofield " :-")
