Jesus praises this say what?! 🤔 – See this | AWAYION BEAUTY

Hi, Friends!

Jesus praising judgement (see Luke 7:43) may appear implausible to an audience with a lesser level of comprehension. Christ seems to go against the commonly quoted phrase “judge not” that is embraced by both secularists and some non-secularists.

But do people share the right perception of “to judge/judgement” when reading the Bible?

In this post, unearth whether you have a sound comprehension of biblical judgement. Because every girl in Christ needs clarity.

Super Awesome Side Note: Before we start, understand we will not claim contested truths. And we will refrain from falling into the trap of “teaching man-made ideas as commands from the Creator.”

Out of respect for believers, we will simply acknowledge the multiplicity of views on this subject (the keyword is “acknowledge” and not agree). So, always do further research.

Super Psst… the big secret I’ve been hinting around on social media for a few months now – is revealed… (it’s why I have been MIA for a bit…). Read on after this post for the juicy details.

TL:DR A quick post glance:

  1. What are the biblical definitions for judgement/to judge?
  2. Jesus praises judgement, like that really happened… yep…
  3. What does this mean for you?

Sound juicy? Okay, Ladies. Let’s start.

1. What are the biblical definitions for judgement/to judge?

To comprehensively explain the manifold applications of the words ‘judgement/to judge‘ in the biblical text would take an extended amount of time. In the Greek text up to 114 times, the word krinó was prominent. Super large number, eh? So, I will provide you with a brief overview of the many interpretations of the words ‘judgement/to judge‘ found in the Bible.

For starters, the original meaning of the Greek word krinó (ἔκρινον, κρινῶ, ἔκρινα, κέκρικα, κέκριμαι, ἐκρίθην) found in Strong’s number: 2919, for judgement, was “separate” and is used in Matt 7:1 to refer to the act of judgment by God to determine innocence or guilt.

Next Strong’s 8199, where the Hebrew word for judgment is shaphat (שָׁפַט) used in 1 Kings 3:9 when Solomon asked wisdom from God. The word specifically meant to provide a ruling for each person in civil, political, domestic, and religious matters.

Finally, Strong’s 350 references the Greek word anakrinó (ἀνακρίνω) in 1 Corinthians 2:15, which translates to judgement, and implies investigation, interrogation, and determination by asking questions, discerning, examining, judging, and searching. 350 (anakrínō) was a powerful tool of the legal system in the ancient world. It can even refer to “examination by torture” (see Field, Notes, 120f, Abbott-Smith).]

👉 Dive deep into multiple definitions and verses for the meanings of “judgement” here.

Research Matthew 7:1, 1 Kings 3:9, 1 Corinthians 2:15

2. Jesus praises judgement, like really that happened… yep…


In the Bible, the “judgement” Greek word krinó carries a weighty legal implication. When you use the legal color, it can mean either a reasonable conclusion or to form an opinion.

Let’s inspect the biblical text to find out where this is visible:

Simon answered and said, I suppose that [he], to whom he forgave most. And He said unto him, Thou hast rightly judged. (Luke 7:43)

Jesus (Yeshua) praises Peter for making a judgement (using a form of this same word). This verse gives the meaning of the verb in action and is a great illustration of what “judge” means. However, there is deeper point about the literal meaning of this verse. Are we to make no judgements at all? That would be silly, we have to make judgements every second of the day (Biblical Hermeneutics Stack Exchange, 2016).

And isn’t it interesting how Yeshua responds to Peter’s judgement? Quite a different reaction than one from “non judgement” doctrines of today, eh? Could this mean we are to always look to the original language used in the text for clarity? Yep!

I know some of you are still in shock over Yeshua giving Peter praise for making a judgement call. It’s okay, you can breathe now. 

Research Luke 7:43
