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.

Discussion for Matthew 28

  • 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?
  • Wayne
    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
  • A disciple
    Brian; You yourself quote how there are three mentioned; and then persist in wrenching another strange meaning out of it! Jesus came down to the Jordan to be baptized; the Spirit descended in the form of a dove; the Father spoke from heaven, "This is my Son the beloved, in whom I have found delight." You have believed a false teaching, and another gospel sent to rob you of salvation. Repent!
