Matthew 11 - IVP New Testament Commentaries

QUESTIONS AND OPPOSITION

Greater Than a Prophet (11:1-19) John was greater than earlier prophets (11:9), for he proclaimed a fuller message (11:10; 13:17). Yet John struggled with human weaknesses, including misunderstanding and doubt (11:1-6). Aware of our own frailties, we can draw encouragement from the struggles of our biblical predecessors; God uses imperfect vessels even while he is summoning us to greater maturity in him.
