Matthew 13 - IVP New Testament Commentaries

The Threatened Prophet

Like Moses, Elijah and Jeremiah, Jesus was rejected among his own people (13:53-58); the prophet John's execution thus prefigures his own (14:1-12). But like Moses and Elisha of old, Jesus feeds the multitude (14:13-21) and ultimately reveals himself in an act that characterizes no mere prophet, but God alone (14:22-33); the multitudes continue to seek him for healing (14:34-36).
