Luke 10:21 Commentary - Expository Notes with Practical Observations on the New Testament

Here we find our Saviour glorifying his Father, and magnifying himself.

1. He glorifies his Father for the wise and free dispensation of his gospel grace to the meanest and most ignorant persons, while the great and learned men of the world undervalued and despises it: I thank thee, Father, that thou hast revealed these things to babes.

Learn hence,

1. That until God reveals himself, his nature and will, no man can know either what he is, or what he requires: Thou hast revealed.

2. That the wise and knowing men in the world have in all ages despised the mysteries of the gospel, and having therefore been judicially blinded by God: Thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent.

3. That the most ignorant, if humble, and desirous of spiritual illumination, are in the readiest disposition to receive and embrace the gospel revelation: Thou hast revealed them unto babes.

4. That this is not more pleasing to Christ than it is the pleasure of his Father: Even so, Father, for so it seemed good in thy sight.

Observe, 2. Our Saviour magnifies himself.

1. His authority and commission: All things are delivered unto me; that is, all power is committed to me as mediator from God the Father.

2. His office to reveal his Father's will to a lost world: No man knoweth the father, but the Son, or the Son but the Father; that is, no man knows their essence and nature, their will and pleasure, their counsel and consent, their mutual compact and agreement between themselves, for saving a lost world, but only themselves, and those to whom they have revealed it.

Learn thence, that all saving knowledge of God is in, by, and through Christ; he, as the great prophet of his chruch, reveals unto us the mind and will of God for our salvation: None knoweth but he to whom the Son revealeth.
