28:19 Disciple all nations - Make them my disciples. This includes the whole design of Christ's commission. Baptizing and teaching are the two great branches of that general design. And these were to be determined by the circumstances of things; which made it necessary in baptizing adult Jews or heathens, to teach them before they were baptized; in discipling their children, to baptize them before they were taught; as the Jewish children in all ages were first circumcised, and after taught to do all God had commanded them. #Mark 16:15|.
Mt 28:19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations. "Go ye therefore and make disciples of all nations" (Revised Version). There are several things to be noticed: (1) "Go", implies an aggressive warfare. The Gospel army must move upon the nations. The Lord seeks universal empire, and sends forth his armies to conquer the world. Every church and every disciple must understand that they have marching orders. (2) Not only is every saint commanded to "go", or to take steps to make the gospel go, but the object is stated. They are to make "disciples", or pupils, and scholars of Christ; not great philosophers, but "babes in Christ Jesus" (1Co 3:1), who have entered the school of Christ and are to be taught afterwards. (3) Who are to be made disciples is next indicated. Not the Jews only, but "all nations". Christ came to be the Savior of the world. His is a universal religion. In the Great Commission he looks beyond Judea, and commands that the Gospel shall be offered to all nations. The test of eighteen centuries shows that Christianity is not local or national, but is adapted to the needs of all mankind. (4) It is next stated how disciples shall be made. Baptizing them. The rite by which those who believe upon him should be formally enlisted and enrolled in the school of Christ is baptism. It is a baptism of the Spirit that he means, because it is one that those whom he addresses are commanded to administer. He alone baptized with the Spirit; his apostles and disciples baptized in water, and it is to this rite that he refers. Hence, when we turn to the preaching of the apostles under this commission, we find that all converts were at once baptized (Ac 2:38-41 8:12-18). (5) The end or result of baptism is also given. Converts were to be baptized into the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. It is a positive affirmation of the Old Testament that where the name of the Lord is recorded there will he meet his disciples, or there will be his presence. See Ex 20:24. The Lord declares that the three names, that of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, are recorded in baptism. In this rite, then, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit meet the believer; the Father to receive him as a child, the Son to welcome him as a brother, and to cover him with the mantle of his own purity; the Holy Spirit to endow him with that Spirit by which he can say, "Abba, Father". "Into the name of" is equivalent to "into the presence of", or "into the Father, and into the Son, and into the Holy Spirit".

Why can 't we just do everything the 1st disciples did. God is and will always be a mystery for many things. Just do what they did and don 't rationalize and put God in a box. It 's very simple that way. Everything you do, do all in the name of Jesus . Please and thank you.

GOD THE FATHER THE SON AND THE HOIY GHOST FORM ONE THING.
Solomon Price's comment on 2015-01-09 09:57:29:
We must understand or at least accept the teaching of the Bible which informs us that the baptismal water does not have any part in our becoming saved. Ephesians 2: 8-9 states "we are saved by faith not of works.. " The rite of baptism is actually a 'work ' or an 'action ' demanding an exertion of energy. These facts should bring us to the conclusion that since water baptism does play any part in the actual saving of the soul, why the debate of what words to say while performing the baptismal rite. I believe "In the name of Jesus or in the Name of each person of the Godhead would be acceptable by God if done in spiritual sincerity and if the recipient is saved BEFORE STEPPING INTO THE WATER. Baptism can be said to be 'an outward testimony of an inward change. ' In light of the foregoing, baptism is by no means minimized.I God forbid that I or anyone would dare to attempt to dilute the importance of it. However we must understand how and why God has given it to the Church. It is a "figure " or a 'type ' of the actual baptizing or 'placing into ' of the believing sinner into the spiritual body of Christ, the Church. 1 Peter 3:21 "The like FIGURE whereby even baptism also now save us... "

Isa. 9 6 says "For unto us a child is born, unto us a Son is given and the government shall be upon His shoulder and His name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The EVERLASTING FATHER. The Prince of Peace. My comment is this If prophet Isaiah did not mean what he said wrote, then he is a false prophet. A false prophet had to be stoned to death in that time. Since he did not get stoned to death, it means that Isaiah was a true prophet of the God of Abraham Isaac and Jacob Israel . Everlasting Father is just ONE Person. Therefore, the Son Jesus Christ has to be the same Person as the Father.

jesus spoke with his apostles,forty days after he rose from the dead.Jesus spoke of matthew 28 19,the apostles went forth and baptized in Jesus name.Jesus has to be the name of the Father,Son,and Holy Ghost or the Apostles did not obey what Jesus said.
Aaron's comment on 2014-10-05 20:41:15:
The correct way to baptize is clearly written in Matthew 28 19. In the name of the Father, The Son, ant the Holy Spirit. Their is one God and this One God is divided in 3. Since the Father, Son and Holy Spirit is one, that explains the "NAME " part of the scripture. We are to mention all three because we take the example of when Jesus himself was baptized.He was the Son, the Holy Spirit descended on him, and God spoke over him. This includes all three. Many people say we must baptize in Jesus name, which is wrong. They refer to the scripture in Acts 2 38 that says to Repent and be Baptized in The Name Of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of sins. But many don 't know that the word "baptism " or "Baptize " is used 3 different ways in the new testament. In Acts 2 38, the word "baptize " is referring to the baptism into the Body of Christ also found in 1st Cor. 12 13 by accepting God 's gift of salvation by Faith Ephesians 2 8 , Confessing that Jesus is Lord, and believing that God raised him from the dead Rom. 10 9 . Other verses saying that they baptized the name of Jesus did not mean literally baptizing in the Name of Jesus. Since the disciples were preaching the Name of Jesus, they used this phrase which meant "In authority of " because all authority was given to Jesus Matthew 28 18 , and Jesus ' command was to baptize in The Name of the Father, The Son, and the Holy Spirit.

Jesus said go and baptis then in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Bt i always see pastor and other leader baptising people in water. Am amaized.
Armando Godina's comment on 2014-06-22 11:28:14:
The Father,Son,HolyGhost, are only titles of the one and only God who 's name is Jesus. No power in titles. Only in names is there power. Try using titles cashing a check. Uncle,cousin, husband. It won 't work. Only my name gives that check validility. Likewise, only the name of Jesus makes baptism valid.!

Matwheezy's comment on 2014-05-12 15:02:54:
the bible said go ye into the world preach and baptist in the name mark the word NAME Of father son and holy ghost which means three of them are one for instance when jesus was to be crucify the flesh of jesus Christ said something but the spirit refuse to adapt he said if it pleases you let the cup pass me talking to the God in him bcos he is in flesh but the God in him did not accept then he said let ur will be done which means let the will of God in me be done mat 26 39 bcos jesus was in a condition were by the flesh he is caring can not take it anymore so the flesh shout take it away if it pleases you

SO YOU THINK THE APOSTLES IN THE BOOK OF ACTS DID IT WRONG
Joan Jones's comment on 2014-01-03 05:01:43:
when did Peter get to be more powerful than JESUS when JESUS said all power is given unto me in heaven and earth JESUS was the one who gave the great commandment to go into all the world and preach the gospel baptize them in the name of the Father Son and Holy Ghost and the Bible states these three are one
E. Ekimi's comment on 2013-11-02 12:02:50:
We are to be baptized in The Name of Yahushua, but I wonder who baptized John the Baptist and when John baptized others, whose name did he use --as he didn't know Yahushua or His name; only that Someone was to come after him. And what name did John use to baptize Yahushua? Seems to me that John didn't use any name, only that the person repented of their sins and asked for forgiveness and they were put under the water to wash their sins away.
Solomon's comment on 2013-10-06 09:32:19:
Some people said the name have to be mention not the title but in my church,if the pastors declare that"We baptize you in the name of the Father,the Son and the Holy Spirit".The people will respond by saying "Amen".Since `Amen' is mentioned,the name had already been mentioned(REV 3:14).The name of Jesus is many.He is the everlasting Father,almighty God,Amen(Rev 3:14).To baptize in the name of the Father,the Son,the Holy Spirit is not wrong.Some people says it is a title,Do we have any Holy Spirit as a title in heaven and earth except that of Jesus Christ.We only have evil spirit which is not of God,so it is already a name and also a title.
Jose Lodi's comment on 2013-09-22 20:23:52:
mathew 28:19 is the same thing as Jesus it says the father+ the son+the holy spirit= Jesus, it means that jesus is in all 3. when jesus was baptized by john, was to set an example that everyone wanting to believe in jesus should be baptized all information is in the bible please read.God Bless You.
Darin Grimes's comment on 2013-05-18 11:36:40:
One of the Disciples Jesus was talking to (Peter) we later find all throught the book of Acts Baptizing in the name of Jesus.So the Apostles must know that the name of the Father,and of the Son,and of the Holy Ghost is Jesus.There is no one in the Bible being baptized ion the titles Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,But there is thousands of people in the book of Acts being baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of their sins.There is only name given among men whereby we must be saved that name is Jesus and He is as Isaiah says the Mighty God The everlasting Father

Stan Hatcher's comment on 2011-01-29 06:45:08:
What do I think? After being saturated in the subject for over thirty years, here's what I have learned: (From Matthew 28:19)
Soon after Jesus arose from the dead, He met with His disciples and commanded them with the words we read in the verses above; commonly referred to as the Great commission. Clearly, it is through the process of baptism that disciples are made. Question: were the disciples to process people from the standpoint of their already being “in” the name of the Godhead, as the translated preposition “in” would suggest, or, something else? Translating the Greek word “eis “to read “in” would appeal to the question “how”; where translating it to read, “into” would solicit the question, into “what”. If the Greek preposition “eis” was translated “into” instead of “in” like the original text suggests then we would find that Jesus was indeed, telling His disciples to process people “into” the family name of the Godhead.
Some Denominational leaders argue that the phrase; “in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,” is a formula, while others try to assign a given name to each, or a single element of the Godhead. Believe it or not, there was a time in our history when people were dipped three times; in each name respectively. What is interesting to note is that the Bible is silent as to what the name is/are; so why guess? Seems to me that knowing the name is not what’s important as what our being processed into that name accomplishes.
It should not be a hard to believe that the process of being baptized “into” the name of the Godhead creates an immediate change in status of citizenship (Eph 2:19). More than anything, it establishes kinship and family, communion and fellowship, the very thing that Jesus came to restore.
A name is simply an abbreviated totality of anything we see or can perceive through one of our senses. The Name “God” is an abbreviated totality of Who and What He is; it encompasses ALL of Him. This applies to all people and things as well. Jesus is the Name God gave to His Son; it defines who and what He is to and for the world; the Holy Spirit is the Name ascribed to the invisible part of God in whom all His Power is resident and Father is the Name taken by the One who begot Jesus and us through Him. In this one Name, He has combined all of the Names He was known by in the past. One final thought; a name is inseparable from the person or thing it is ascribed; they are one and the same.
Once the process of baptism is complete, one becomes authorized to function as a disciple. Through the instruction handed down by Jesus, disciples would become, not only devoted followers of Christ, but able to carry-on with the perpetual task of bringing Jesus to the Nations. Once baptized, we are joined is an affinity with God and His Kingdom.
Baptism in action:
Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in (epi = upon) the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.
For as yet He had fallen upon none of them. They had only been baptized in (eis = into) the name of the Lord Jesus.
Acts 10:48 (ALSO: Acts 19:5-6, Rom 6:3, 1 Cor 12:13, Gal 3:27)
And he commanded them to be baptized in (en = in) the name of the Lord.
So, in the final analysis, people are baptized “into = eis” Jesus, “upon the basis of = epi” His Name by one who is already “in = en” the Name of Jesus, having authority to implement the process.
