Mt 28:18 Spake unto them. To the whole assembly of five hundred brethren (1Co 15:6). A commission had been given long before to the twelve apostles (Mt 10:1-15), and also to the seventy, but it differed widely from the one now given. It confined the preaching to the Jews, and announced the kingdom of heaven as yet in the future. Now the preachers of Christ are sent, by the authority of the King, to make disciples of all nations. The old dispensation had ended with the cross. The new one had begun with the resurrection. All power. Henceforth he was the King and Judge of the nations. The word "is given" denotes the source from whence he obtained his power, and implies that it was not inherent in the Son. Php 2:9 indicates that it was given to him after, and in consequence of, his voluntary humiliation; and 1Co 15:27, shows that it held in subjection to the Father. It was because the authority to rule the world had been placed in his hands that he issued his commands that it should be conquered.
