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".

    Read John 14:16-26. The scriptures will help you.

    No where in the Bible does it say God is a - 'person'; it DOES say Jn. 4:24 and Rom. 8:16. Jesus very words I'm Matt. 28:19 do not say there are 3 persons NOR even 3 spirits; He said baptizing them in the NAME (not names). Acts 2:38 tells us what that name is. Also does Acts 4:12, also does Philippians 2:9-11; Isa.45:23. Jesus was the only 'person'.

    It us one God. Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. Jesus said so. He's the one who said 3 in one. It's in black and white. And red. Matt. 17, the cloud moved over and said, this is my beloved son in whom I'm well pleased. Hear ye him. Father and son. One God. Not hard to see and understand. Christ's throne is in the Father's throne. Separate thrones together. Jesus is sitting on the Father's right hand.

    The Lord just gave me an understanding of why Trinitarians WON'T (refuse) to believe in all the scriptures that proclaim - ONE GOD; in Acts 2:38 (baptized in the NAME of ... ) there are a LOT of things we are shown we must 'do' (Jas. ch. 2) to obey His commandments. People want to go their own way - and still live for God. God's not 'blind' to us.

    Vickie, I used to be bothered about Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. Couldn't figure it out in my head. Confused. One God. What in the world. Then reading the scriptures, it became clear to me how they could be together. Jesus says Father, Son, Holy Ghost. Jesus is the authority at this time. As Jesus said there are 3, he is the authority.v. 20 to do as we are commanded. We are to follow His commands
