Discussion for Matthew 28

  • 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!
  • Brian
    disciple, what scripture verses does one NOT take out of context? John 4:24"GOD IS A SPIRIT: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth." 1 Timothy 3:16"And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: GOD WAS MANIFEST IN THE FLESH, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory"
  • A disciple
    Brian (cont.); The problem is that which the Jews stumble at also; that God was manifest in the flesh. We receive in faith that God made man in His image and likeness; but the suggestion that God Himself who has power to give life and create by simply commanding it to be, should "be able" to replicate Himself in a Son, born of a woman! Things too high for us just now, God is able to let us know.
