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.

    Rick:John1:1-14: Word was God, the Word was made flesh, His Name is Jesus without His Blood there is no salvation. 1John 1:7. There are three in heaven The Father The Word and The Holy Ghost:1John5:7. Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God:1John5:1.called: John 6:44/ washed:1John1:9/ will be:Matthew 3:11. Changed: 2Corinthians5:17. You will know! impossible not to know!

    Amen Jesus tried to make this simple for us but the devil knows if he can keep you from being baptized in that singular all powerful only saving name of Jesus he can keep from being saved Acts 4:12 none other name under heaven whereby ye must be saved Colossians 3:17 Do all in the name of Jesus .
  • Rick D
    God is very Persis in giving directions and he said in the "name" not "names" plural forum. if he had wanted us to baptize in the titles or names of God he would have used the plural here but the Hebrew word for "name" is singular and can not mean in the names of anything or anyone. You error in that in the scripture it is saying name of and then gives three different titles for that name. Just like I am a father and I am a son and I have a spirit, but my name is Rick! There is no three separate persons or a trinity mentioned anywhere in the word of God! People try to explain away that Jesus was none other than God himself manifested in the flesh, robed in flesh and dwelt among us. NO Person other than God can forgive sins, NO ONE BESIDES HIM! So it had to be God almighty that was formed as a man, not a separated being other than God!

    Wa-a-y back in '14, a person said the ascension wasn't mentioned in Matt., but that it was in Luke and this made him doubt the veracity of the Bible. Well, this person has LOTS of company. Choose ye this day whom ye shall serve, but as for me and my house we will serve the Lord.

  • Mark Wettengel
    When Jesus told the disciples to baptize in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy spirit in Mt. 28. and then Peter says for them in Act. 2 to be baptized in Jesus name, It means, "in the authority of" In Mk.16:15-20 Jesus say's, "These signs shall follow them that believe, in My name they shall" Name is referring to authority. Peter baptized in the authority of Jesus name Mt.28
