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

  • Mari
    I was baptized in Jesus name. Acts 2:38. Also Matthew 28:19 it says in the name of the father....(his name is Jesus)
  • Irene123
    To TKN95 - Bruce confused my answer to you. We know the Disciples/apostles began witnessing right away - in Jerusalem and nearby towns, but to get them to go into the then known world - Asia, Turkey, etc. God had the Romans start persecuting them so they'd leave Jerusalem.
  • Bruce
    Tkn95,Irene: disciples went out preaching the word of God instantly after they were baptized! Jesus told them to wait until they are baptized Acts1:4-5.
    Irene: they didn't know it was Jesus. Mary thought he was the gardener. Acts20:15.

    You right Jesus is God.1Tim 3:16; Isa 9:6; John 1:1; 1:14; John14:7-9 Father is a title, son,a title, Holy ghost a title. Look at the word name if it was three it would of said names. Also Acts 4:12; We read all in Acts about baptism in the Lord Jesus.Ephesians 4:5 One Lord, One Faith, One Baptism.1John 5:8; Deut6:4; 1John5:20 God will open up your understanding to the scripture if you will allow
