People's Bible Notes for Matthew 28:20


Mt 28:20 Teaching them. The second part of the commission is next given. The first part commands the making of disciples, and tells how they must be made. The second part provides for the instruction of the disciples in righteousness. This is to be done by "teaching them". To observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you. What must be taught by the faithful Christian teacher is prescribed. It will at once be seen that this cuts off much that is often taught. We are not to teach "untaught questions" (2Ti 2:23), "oppositions of science, so called" (1Ti 6:20), dogmatic speculations, isms or human creeds. Christ has never commanded these. On the other hand, we are to teach "all things" he has commanded. Some of these things we have recorded in the Gospels; others we have in the Acts and in the Epistles. They embrace the various duties of Christian life. I am with you alway. It was an arduous work he had commanded his disciples to undertake; a few uninfluential and unlettered laboring men to undertake the moral and religious conquest of a world that had just crucified their Master. There was, however, an assurance that they should be equal to the task, for (1) All power, or authority, in heaven and earth was in the hands of their crucified Lord. (2) He now declares, "I am with you always". He who has all power will be present with them, a help in time of need. He is a mighty, present and helping Savior. [Even] unto the end of the world. Until the close of the Christian dispensation, coming of the Lord, and the day of judgment.

    Verse 18 of this Chapter it is a comprehensive assurance for all true believers that there is total victory at the end of any challenge they may encounter on this journey of a lifetime, because all the power has been given unto JESUS. Glory be to God.

    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?
  • Irene123
    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.
