Matthew 8:2

behold, there came a leper

The King, having in Chapters 5.-7. declared the principles of the kingdom, makes proof, in Chapters 8., 9., of His power to banish from the earth the consequences of sin, and to control the elements of nature.


Gr. Kurios. The first occurrence of the word is applied to Jesus with His evident sanction. In itself the word means "master," and is so used of mere human relationships in, e.g. Matthew 6:24; 15:27; Mark 13:35; Ephesians 6:9 Both uses, divine and human, are brought together in Colossians 4:1. It is the (Greek - ajqevmitoß Heb). "Adonai." (See Scofield "Genesis 15:2") , and is so used by Jesus Christ in Matthew 22:43-35. In the N.T. the distinctive uses of Kurios (Lord) are:

(1) As the N.T. translation of the Heb. Jehovah (Lord), e.g. Matthew 1:20,22; 2:15; 3:3; 4:7,10; 11:25; 21:9; Mark 12:29,30; Luke 1:68; 2:9

(2) Jesus Himself so uses Kurios, e.g. Matthew 4:7,10; 11:25; Mark 12:11.

(3) But the great use of Kurios is as the divine title of Jesus, the Christ. In this sense it occurs in the N.T. 663 times. That the intent is to identify Jesus Christ with the O.T. Deity is evident from Matthew 3:3; 12:8; 21:9; Psalms 118:26; Matthew 22:43-45; Luke 1:43; John 8:58; 14:8-10; John 20:28; Acts 9:5; 13:33. (Psa.2.). (See Scofield "John 20:28") .
