People's Bible Notes for Matthew 28:20


Mt 28:20 Teaching them. The second part of the commission is next given. The first part commands the making of disciples, and tells how they must be made. The second part provides for the instruction of the disciples in righteousness. This is to be done by "teaching them". To observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you. What must be taught by the faithful Christian teacher is prescribed. It will at once be seen that this cuts off much that is often taught. We are not to teach "untaught questions" (2Ti 2:23), "oppositions of science, so called" (1Ti 6:20), dogmatic speculations, isms or human creeds. Christ has never commanded these. On the other hand, we are to teach "all things" he has commanded. Some of these things we have recorded in the Gospels; others we have in the Acts and in the Epistles. They embrace the various duties of Christian life. I am with you alway. It was an arduous work he had commanded his disciples to undertake; a few uninfluential and unlettered laboring men to undertake the moral and religious conquest of a world that had just crucified their Master. There was, however, an assurance that they should be equal to the task, for (1) All power, or authority, in heaven and earth was in the hands of their crucified Lord. (2) He now declares, "I am with you always". He who has all power will be present with them, a help in time of need. He is a mighty, present and helping Savior. [Even] unto the end of the world. Until the close of the Christian dispensation, coming of the Lord, and the day of judgment.

    it means that God promise never to leave us alone. that he will be with us all the way until the end of the earth. He wants us to know that he was given all power and authority in the all earth by his heavenly farther.

    Jesus told his disciples to go into the world to preach the gospel .And to go to all four corners of the world to preach the gospel . And to tell them that receive him that he will be with us always unto the end.And for us his children not to be afraid. And go ye therefore and babtising them in the name of the father,son,and the holy spirit.
  • Butch
    Alway is the right word. It means all the way, while always means something else , not meaning what Jesus meant. So this is way alway was used. he would be with us by his Spirit, all the way til the end.
  • Angela Juarez
    I have noticed in Matthew 28:20 it has alway but it should read always.
  • Jeanie
    There is no place in the bible that said infant and babies when talking about baptizing. Throughout the bible it said the person being baptized must except Christ in their lives. A baby can't do that. After they are baptized they must live a godly life. Their decision, no one else can decide for them. Please check it out. God bless
  • Jeannie
    Baptizing in the name is a commandment Matt. 28:19,20 Acts 10:48 . Mimicking what someone commands is not the same as obeying what is commanded. Jesus commanded His Apostles to baptize in THE one name and they obeyed Acts 8:12,16 10:47,48 19:5 2:38,39 . Only one name has authority to save us Acts 4:11,12 John 20:31 1 Pet. 3:21 Acts 10:43 Eph. 4:5 Mark 16:16 . There was always opposition against the use of the name Acts 4:17,18 5:28,29,39-42 .
