Three Difficulties of Matthew 19

Bets and I read Matthew 19 together last night.  I had not noticed before, but there are three difficulties in chapter 19.

1.  According to Jesus, it is difficult for the rich to enter the Kingdom of Heaven.  Jesus said in vs. 23, “Truly, I say to you, only with difficulty will a rich person enter the kingdom of heaven.”

2.  According to Jesus, it is difficult for some to accept His teaching on marriage and divorce.  Jesus said in vs. 11, “Not everyone can receive this saying, but only those to whom it is given.”

3. According to Jesus, it shouldn’t be so difficult for the children to come to Him.  Jesus said to the disciples in vs. 14, “Let the children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven.”
