Matth. iv. 21, with Zebedee their father.] The death of Zebedee is nowhere mentioned in the gospels ; yet an undesigned coincidence, and proof of the veracity of the Evangelists, is evident by comparing this place with others, in which his death is tacitly alluded to. Thus, in Chap. viii. 21, it is related that “another of his disciples said and John, with the miraculous draught of fishes. Near Capernaum. LUKE.

8 When Simon Peter saw it, he fell down at Jesus' knees, saying, Depart from me ; for I am a sinful man, O Lord.
9 For he was astonished, and all that were with him, at the draught of the fishes which they had taken :

Newcome. For the consequences of a premature full manifestation of himself as the Messiah, by awakening the jealousy of the Roman government, might, humanly speaking, have impeded his ministry. Yet there was great propriety in the private exhibition, to the priesthood, of full proof that he was the Messiah ; after which, their obstinacy in rejecting him was inexcusable. In this, and divers other instances our Lord mani
