Matthew 19 - IVP New Testament Commentaries

THE FINAL JOURNEY

Jesus continues to face conflicts with the establishment and misunderstanding among his disciples, but especially once he arrives in Jerusalem, the conflicts with the municipal aristocracy-the local religious and political establishment backed by the Roman Empire-grow more intense. Without an army to support him, Jesus challenges the leadership in Jerusalem, an act that would, apart from God's intervention, inevitably invite his execution.
