People's Bible Notes for Matthew 28:18


Mt 28:18 Spake unto them. To the whole assembly of five hundred brethren (1Co 15:6). A commission had been given long before to the twelve apostles (Mt 10:1-15), and also to the seventy, but it differed widely from the one now given. It confined the preaching to the Jews, and announced the kingdom of heaven as yet in the future. Now the preachers of Christ are sent, by the authority of the King, to make disciples of all nations. The old dispensation had ended with the cross. The new one had begun with the resurrection. All power. Henceforth he was the King and Judge of the nations. The word "is given" denotes the source from whence he obtained his power, and implies that it was not inherent in the Son. Php 2:9 indicates that it was given to him after, and in consequence of, his voluntary humiliation; and 1Co 15:27, shows that it held in subjection to the Father. It was because the authority to rule the world had been placed in his hands that he issued his commands that it should be conquered.

    Your right Bruce and Gaileeanna. Genesis1: 26 does state, Let US make man in OUR image. Good comment!
  • Gaileeanna
    Always remember nothing is ever impossible for GOD! The trinity is Father God, son Jesus Christ and the Holy spirit. This is why the number 3 is extremely significant in the bible also numbers 1,7, and 144,000 as well.

    Irene: Did God said,let Us make "Man" in Our Image? First: Did God say let Us Make or let me Make? Us: is more then One. Now: Are you saying, God said let Us Make Jesus in Our Image? Or,its Impossible for God to Make Man in His Image?

    In order to understand any verse of scripture (including Gen. 1:26), we must "rightly divide the word of truth." First of all, God is a spirit, and since there is no image that can be made of a spirit, the words "our image" may refer to a future body that would belong to God. That is exactly who Jesus Christ was, the image of the invisible God (Col. 1:15). cont.

    Irene: God said let "Us"make man in "Our Image" after" Our Likeness" The Trinity is God. Without any 1 of The Three there would be no God: Genesis1:26-27/ Ever learning and never able to come to The Knowledge of The Truth.---But Evil man and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived. 2Timothy 3:7, 13.
