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.

Discussion for Matthew 28

    Matthew 28:19-20 The Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, is not a tittle its a command. Jesus command us to do this whenever we're baptizing someone. 1 John 5:9 said, if we receive the witness of men, the witness of God is greater: for this is the witness of God which He hath testified of His son. So Peter testimony is greater than Jesus'? I don't think so.

    Verses 12 - 15 can make someone wonder if Jesus really did raise again, but not me, cause I know He is very real. Just look at the words He spoke while on earth, and the signs of the end times. But I have my very personal walk and experiences to let me know that The Holy trinity of God is very real !!!!! I praise the Lord each day and am in His word always. I keep in perpetual prayer in my heart!!

  • MockingBird
    God's word is His command to me and all that know Him as Lord and Savior : God's word is not optional : I cannot pick and choose nor is His word a buffet !!! What my Lord has spoken to me I believe I am to share with my fellow believers : the only word that the lost and unbelievers need to know is of the salvation that is available to them through the death , burial , and resurrection of Jesus Christ .I am not to give that which is Holy unto the dogs. God is with me always when I observe to be doing His word in accordance with His will.
