People's Bible Notes for Matthew 28:7


Mt 28:7 Tell his disciples that he is risen from the dead. To woman it was first announced that the birth of the child whose name should be Jesus, "because he should save his people from their sins" (Mt 1:21) was near; women were the last of his disciples to linger at the cross or to watch at the sepulcher; they were the first to see the empty tomb, to hear the glad news, or to be sent to tell the story of their risen Lord. He goeth before you into Galilee. They are cited to Galilee to meet the Lord, not that his only appearance would be there, for that was the seventh, but because, in that country, where the largest number of his disciples lived, he proposed to reveal himself to the whole body of saints. There he was seen "by about five hundred brethren at once" (1Co 15:6).

Discussion for Matthew 28

  • Irene123
    To TKN95 on Matt. 28:19 - Here are 2 answers - they DID baptize in the NAME (Acts 2:38); they DID go into all the world, albeit a little slowly (Acts 11:19). But even today, as Christians, we are sometimes 'slow' to respond if it seems scary or what ever the case may be. But HE knows how to get His work done, i.e, persecution, and etc.
  • Tkn95
    Why did the disciples not do as Christ said in vs 19?
  • Irene123
    I just now noticed this (as many times as I have read it!!); they believed Jesus as soon as they saw Him. The disciples didn't until Jesus broke bread with them. Not always, but as a rule women will accept the truth before their men will - be they husbands, brothers, what have you. Women are more 'tender', as a general rule. I know some say more gullible, but - that's God's doing.
  • Irene123
    To BSP on Matt. 28:18 - And Jesus spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.
  • Irene123
    Matt. 28:18; And Jesus spake saying, ALL power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.
  • Irene123
    Matt. 28:18 - Proves Jesus is God; Jesus is God's name; "ALL power is given to me"; Deut. 4:39; 6:4; Isa. 42:8; 43:11; 44:6, v. 8; Eph. 4:5; Philip. 2:9-10; ALL power; God does not know another savior beside Him.
