28耶稣讲完了这些话,群众都惊奇他的教训。
28And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings, the people were astonished at his doctrine:
28 Verse 28. The people were astonished] οιοχλοι, the

multitudes; for vast crowds attended the ministry of this most

popular and faithful of all preachers. They were astonished at

his doctrine. They heard the law defined in such a manner as they

had never thought of before; and this sacred system of morality

urged home on their consciences with such clearness and authority

as they had never felt under the teaching of their scribes and

Pharisees. Here is the grand difference between the teaching of

scribes and Pharisees, the self-created or men-made

ministers, and those whom GOD sends. The first may preach what is

called very good and very sound doctrine; but it comes with no

authority from God to the souls of the people: therefore, the

unholy is unholy still; because preaching can only be effectual to

the conversion of men, when the unction of the Holy Spirit is in

it; and as these are not sent by the Lord, therefore they shall

not profit the people at all. .



From one of the royal household of George III., I have received

the following anecdote:-The late Bishop F. of Salisbury having

procured a young man of promising abilities to preach before the

king, and the young man having, to his lordship's apprehension,

acquitted himself well, the Bishop, in conversation with the king

afterwards, wishing to get the king's opinion, took the liberty to

say, "Does not your majesty think that the young man who had the

honour to preach before your majesty, is likely to make a good

clergyman, and has this morning delivered a very good sermon?" To

which the king, in his blunt manner, hastily replied, "It might

have been a good sermon, my lord, for aught I know; but I consider

no sermon good that has nothing of Christ in it!"
