Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Matthew 21:43

_ _ Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God — God’s visible Kingdom, or Church, upon earth, which up to this time stood in the seed of Abraham.

_ _ shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof — that is, the great evangelical community of the faithful, which, after the extrusion of the Jewish nation, would consist chiefly of Gentiles, until “all Israel should be saved” (Romans 11:25, Romans 11:26). This vastly important statement is given by Matthew only.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Matthew 21:33-46.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Matthew 21:43
