Bible Commentary for Matthew 28:20

Wesley's Notes for Matthew 28:20

28:18 All power is given to me - Even as man. As God, he had all power from eternity.

28:19 Disciple all nations - Make them my disciples. This includes the whole design of Christ's commission. Baptizing and teaching are the two great branches of that general design. And these were to be determined by the circumstances of things; which made it necessary in baptizing adult Jews or heathens, to teach them before they were baptized; in discipling their children, to baptize them before they were taught; as the Jewish children in all ages were first circumcised, and after taught to do all God had commanded them. #Mark 16:15|.

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 28:20

  • Renita Menyhert on Matthew 28:20
    I have a question. When Jesus gave this last commandment (Matthew 2820), was this the last time the disciples saw Jesus? Is this what Jesus said as he ascended into heaven? Thank you
  • SkipVought - in Reply on Matthew 28:20
    Jesus said a number of things at the last meeting that His disciples heard. The Evangelists chose to record what The Holy Spirit lead each to do.

    See Mark 16:14-19.

    See Luke 24:44-51 and Acts 1:3-8. Seems that Doctor Luke might have run out of scroll writing his Gospel and continued his account at the beginning of The Acts of The Apostles. Acts1:9-11 continues with The Ascension.

    John recorded nothing related to this event.

    So I'd assume that all these things were said by Jesus and that they saw Jesus ascend to The Father. "But some doubted." Matt 28:17.
  • Carolyn Callahan on Matthew 28:20
    Matthew 28:20 praise God for this verse but what about after the end of time?
  • Chris - in Reply on Matthew 28:20
    Even at the end of time, Jesus will still be there for them and us. I see Jesus' promise there in verse 20, as a description or an expression of the extent of His Love & Presence with them: even though the heavens & earth pass away, His devotion to His Church will never fail. Nothing can separate us from His Love. Romans 8:38,39.
  • Robert Butts on Matthew 28:20
    What are "all things whatsoever I have commanded you" in Matthew 28:20?
  • Brian on Matthew 28:20
    Love One Another: jesus gave us a new command John 13:34-35 "A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another. " Go to all nations making disciples and preach and teach the gospel of jesus christ in season and out of season.

    God has entered into a convernant with us pls brethren fulfil your part in seeking God in full confidence that he always with us
  • Deb on Matthew 28:20
    God said He is with us always. Sadly most are looking to "feel " His presence which can become addictive. God is always with us. No matter if we feel Him there or not. One thing God can 't do is lie. When we get this in our heart and not our head knowing. We will not be ever lonely or hopeless.
  • Moses Njenga on Matthew 28:20
    Paul reminds us that he passed to us what he had recieved from the LORD. We are in the business of passing the baton, passing on what we have recieved, the good news is the assuarance of HIS presence.As we mind HIS business the LORD by HIS SPIRIT abides in us to empower and guide us into the whole Truth until HE returns for HIS own.
