Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Matthew 28:16


28:16 To the mountain where Jesus had appointed them - This was probably Mount Tabor, where, (it is commonly supposed,) he had been before transfigured. It seems to have been here also, that he appeared to above five hundred brethren at once.


People's Bible Notes for Matthew 28:16


Mt 28:16 The eleven disciples went away into Galilee. The time when they went to Galilee is not stated, though we learn from Joh 20:26 that they remained in Judea for over a week after the resurrection. Of the appearances in Galilee we have three accounts: the brief one here, which describes the official meeting of the Lord with the entire body of disciples: the one by the sea, described in Joh 21:1, and the reference by Paul in 1Co 15:6. The eleven went into Galilee because the Lord had commanded them to do so. Into a mountain where Jesus had appointed. The Revised Version says, "the mountain", which is correct. The Lord had named the mountain where he should meet them, and had probably also appointed the time. The object of the appointment was probably to secure a general meeting of his disciples.

    No one reads the bible anymore? Or if they do they don't post their thoughts here in comments. Most comments here are years or months old . The end is quickly approaching. The love of many have gone cold. Never stop reading and learning more each time you read your bible.

    Mat. 28:1-6: Sepulchar door opened by the Earthquake: was for the women, etc. to enter: Our Lord had long gone already? He is the DOOR: He did/does not need door to enter or exit a Building? He just go through the wall! That’s the kind of BODY He has? GLORIFIED BODY! Can you imagine that His Saints(US), will have the same BODY? Yes we all will? We will just think of somewhere: and be there: AMEN!

    As a Bible instructor for grade school students from ages 6-12, I am convinced more than ever, that I must tell them of "The Great Commission". I tell my students that Matthew 28:16-20 is in my opinion the central focus of the Bible. The students are required to recite this passage throughout the school year which happens to be year round.

    Sincerely,

    V4 the keepers was overwhelmed by fear and... V5 the angel said to the women fear not... V10 (a 2nd time) Then said Jesus unto them, Be not afraid... (it was one of those moment in life we all face as it relate to the things of Jehovah / GOD; the women was so afraid and Jesus knew it, so each time Jesus immediately assured the women / us to not to be fearful; they/we are on a mission for GOD
