It is not to the hurried nor to the cursory reader that its treasures are revealed

It is not to the hurried nor to the cursory reader that its treasures are revealed. What a startling and solemn contrast there is between Christ was “numbered with the transgressors” (Mark 15:28), and Judas was “numbered with” the apostles (Acts 1:17). Kataluma is used only in Luke 2:7, where it is rendered “there was no room for them in the inn”; and in Luke 22:11, where it is translated “guestchamber”— where the Savior partook of the passover with His disciples. The woman of Thyatira in Acts 16:14, had her heart opened by the Lord so that she might “take unto her” (which is the meaning of the Greek word rendered “attend”) the message of God’s servant; but the woman of Thyatira in Revelation 2:20, opened her mouth for the purpose of seducing God’s servants! Only twice do we read of the Lord Jesus being kissed, and what a contrast: the woman’s kiss of devotion (Luke 7:38), Judas’ kiss of betrayal (Matthew 26:40)!
