Bible commentary

People's Bible Notes for Matthew 10:20


Mt 10:20 Your Father. Not "Our Father". The Savior never says, "Our Father", except when he teaches the disciples to pray (Mt 6:9 Lu 11:2), but "My Father" and "Your Father". God was his Father in a different sense from that in which he is our Father.

Discussion for Matthew 10:20

  • This scripture is one of the most stirring of all, it clearly saith the god spirit can speak through us, does it mean just to empower us in speaking for the gospel , or to give us knowledge not of our own, or even to speck to our spirit without using language at all ? Direct to our spirit !
