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".

Discussion for Matthew 28

  • Brian
    Redeemed, you are correct. MOST of us grew up with the same blinders received from religion which only Jesus Christ can remove. It is frustrating to say the least trying to explain things to those with closed ears. Same thing Paul went through in Acts 7:57 "Then they cried out with a loud voice, and STOPPED THEIR EARS, and ran upon him with one accord," We all provided countless scriptures...
  • Redeemed
    Brian: there is no since in debating the scriptures the Son has to reveal the Father to him as he did to Paul as well as us. The sad thing is that the Lord is trying to draw people to him and by going back and forth fighting with scriptures we are placing a stumbling block before others that Christ died and we should be walking in unity not division if we love one another.
  • A disciple
    "...Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you; as also in all [his] epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as [they do] also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction." "A man that is an heretic after the first and second admonition reject..."
  • Brian
    disciple, Jeremiah 23:24 "...Do not I fill heaven and earth? saith the Lord" God is a SPIRIT that is EVERYWHERE at once. GOD MANIFESTED HIMSELF IN A BODY of flesh and blood as JESUS CHRIST to be able to die. STILL the SAME GOD, not ANOTHER ONE. Why does anyone think it is so hard for God robed in flesh being baptized to also speak from Heaven at the same time and show a SIGN of the Holy Ghost?

    Mark and Luke 9th chapter, "This is my beloved Son, hear ye Him".
  • Valerie
    It's just that. He was talking to his disciples cause the knew the name of the father the son and holy ghost Jesus.He taught his diciples they were the ones who walked and talked with him before he went to the cross.
    They knew His name. Jesus
