Jesus answered: “Watch out that no one deceives you. For many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am the Messiah,’ and will deceive many.

– Matthew 24:4-5 (NIV)

Today’s commentary
by Dave Whitehead, Senior Pastor, GraceNYC.org, Author of Making Sense of the Bible

Taught during the last week of His life, Jesus was giving His followers some strong boundaries so that they would not fall away after He was gone. Here he talks of people who say that they are the Christ (“anointed one”). Notice the word “deceive”. To be deceived is to not know the difference between the truth and a falsehood – they both look the same. There are many voices today that proclaim to be God’s anointed, but Jesus explicitly tells us that He is God’s final statement to humanity. There is no other.
