    Definitions for Matthew 24:47

    Verily - Truly; surely.

    Clarke's Commentary on Matthew 24:47

    He shall make him ruler over all his goods - O heavenly privilege of a faithful minister of Christ! He shall receive from God a power to dispense all the blessings of the new covenant; and his word shall ever be accompanied with the demonstration of the Holy Ghost to the hearts of all that hear it. Much of a preacher's usefulness may be lost by his unfaithfulness.

    Barnes' Notes on Matthew 24:47

    Shall make him ruler ... - Shall confirm his appointment over his household, and, as a reward, shall place him over all his property.

    This does not mean that ministers will have a higher rank or office, but is a circumstance of "the parable" or story, designed to show the effect of faithfulness. Faithful servants of Christ shall be rewarded. This will be done by His approbation, and by the rewards of the heavenly world.
