    Definitions for Matthew 9:28

    Yea - Yes; certainly.

    Clarke's Commentary on Matthew 9:28

    When he was come unto the house - That is, the house of Peter at Capernaum, where he ordinarily lodged.

    Believe ye that I am able to do this? - Without faith Jesus does nothing to men's souls now, no more than he did to their bodies in the days of his flesh.

    They said unto him, Yea, Lord - Under a sense of our spiritual blindness we should have,

    1st. A lively faith in the almighty grace of Christ.

    2dly. A fervent, incessant cry for the communication of this grace.

    3dly. A proper view of his incarnation, because it is through his union with our nature, and by his sufferings and death, we are to expect salvation.

    Barnes' Notes on Matthew 9:28

    And when he was come into the house - That is, either into the house which he usually occupied in Capernaum, or the house of some friend. They had followed him, but thus far he had not seemed to heed their cries, and he entered the house as if he did not intend to regard them - probably for the trial of their faith.

    The blind men came to him - That is, they followed him into the house. They showed a determination to persevere until they obtained what they asked.

    Believe ye that I am able to do this? - To work such a miracle. Though they had followed him and cried after him, yet he required of them an open profession of their faith in regard to his power.

    They said unto him, Yea, Lord - We have no doubt of this. We came with that assurance: we have followed thee with that belief. It was on this simple profession of their faith that the miracle was performed, as it is on the simple profession of our faith that our souls will be saved.
