People's Bible Notes for Matthew 28:17


Mt 28:17 When they saw him, they worshipped him. It is also stated of the women (Mt 28:9) that they worshiped him, or kneeled at his feet. Some doubted. This does not, as I suppose, refer to the eleven. The doubts of all, including the skeptical Thomas, had been silenced before this. But the story that he had risen seemed so incredible, that there were those assembled on this occasion who had been doubters. These, "when they saw him", remained doubters no longer, but "worshiped him".

    It is one thing to believe God loves you when you believe you've given Him a cause and a reason to love you, but is different when you've give Him no cause and no reason, and God still loves you, he loves you because He is Love. For he is kind unto the unthankful and to the evil.

    WE JUST NEED TO DO WHAT GOD COMMANDED AND LEAVE THE RESULTS AND OUTCOME IN HIS HANDS...PREACH THE GOSPEL TO EVERY CREATURE AND LET THE HOLY SPIRIT CONVICT AND DRAW LOST SINNERS TO CHRIST....

    Fred; no one is looking for arguing about doctrine; but when we have been given something from the Lord, it is for the benefit of the whole assembly, and it is our duty in love and faithfulness to reprove, rebuke, correct, instruct, exhort one another in the Spirit of the truth; for the end of all things is at hand! How much time did the Lord Jesus devote to teaching THAT WE DO, AND NOT ONLY HEAR!
  • Fred -“saved by the blood”
    Brian,Redeemed, a disciple. Ephesians 2:8-9 I am sure you all know it along the Romans road. I am so blessed to not be wrapped up in looking for argumentative dialogue of Gods word. The salvation thru Christ is free to anyone that believes on Christ and what he did on the cross. It is simply up to each person to accept or deny Christ. He is risen,rejoice and share the gospel
