Wesley's Notes for Matthew 16:28

People's Bible Notes for Matthew 16:28


Mt 16:28 Shall not taste death, till they see the Son of man. The reference is not to his final coming to judge the world, but to his spiritual coming to establish his kingdom. This was fulfilled on the day of Pentecost. Mark shows the meaning by substituting, "Till they have seen the kingdom of God come with power" (Mr 9:1). The "coming of the Son of man in his kingdom" means, therefore, the same as "the kingdom of God come with power". Compare Ac 1:8 Lu 24:49. The kingdom came with power on the day of Pentecost (Ac 2:1).

    J.W. - "turn the hearts of the disobedient to the just." That's an interesting way to put it. Another is - the hearts of the fathers - the believing Jews - to the children - the hungry Gentiles. And this is what happened with Peter and then Paul. Their ministry took them from the believing Jews to the Gentiles. The Jews were the 'fathers' in that they heard first, then they produced children.

    Dear Vuiswa kganathe; Do you believe that Jesus is the Son of God? Have you been made to feel guilty because of sins and things you've done wrong; and have prayed to God in Jesus' name with repentance? Have you resolved in your heart to from now on turn your back on your old ways and the world, to follow Jesus?
