People's Bible Notes for Matthew 28:9

Mt 28:9 Jesus met them, saying, All hail. This was the second appearance of the Risen Savior. The appearances were: (1) To Mary Magdalene alone, near Jerusalem--Sunday, April 9 (Mr 16:9 Joh 20:11-18). (2) To the women returning from the sepulcher (Mt 28:9-10). (3) To Simon Peter alone (Lu 24:34). (4) To the two disciples going to Emmaus (Lu 24:13). (5) To the apostles at Jerusalem, excepting Thomas, who was absent. These are all the same day (Joh 20:19). (6) To the apostles at Jerusalem a second time, when Thomas was present--Sunday, one week later (Joh 20:26,29). (7) At the Sea of Tiberias, when seven disciples were fishing (Joh 21:1). (8) To the eleven disciples on a mountain in Galilee (Mt 28:16). (9) To about five hundred brethren at once, in Galilee, near the time of the last. It is possible these two are identical (1Co 15:6). (10) To James only (1Co 15:7). (11) To all the apostles on Mt. Olivet at his ascension-- Thursday, May 18 (Lu 24:51). (12) We may add to these that he was seen by Saul of Tarsus and by John on Patmos (Ac 9:3 Re 1:13).

Discussion for Matthew 28

  • Andy
    I truly believe in the baptism, that is mention in the book of acts. Acts 2:38
  • H
    And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Who gave it to him.
  • A disciple
    A sectarian man; a heretic; one who separates himself from sound doctrine and accepted truth according to the Scriptures. What was once understood as the Narrow Way and the Strait Gate, has turned to rather pampering of and apologizing for the weakness of the flesh, instead of mortifying its desires by the life of the Spirit. Many think they do God service but are in fact working against His Word.
  • Redeemed
    A disciple: you say that a person in a sect and what you really mean is cult believes they are the only ones that are chosen or who gets it although the only thing shared here by Brian or myself is available to anyone through the word but besides that are you not contradicting yourself when you lash out at Brian or myself for not seeing it the way you do. Do unto others as you would have done to u
  • Redeemed
    A disciple: where is the error when every baptism that was ever done in the Bible was done in the name of Jesus? Its all through the book of Acts. The fullness of the Godhead dwells in the body of Jesus which is what we are baptized into and it is a fulfillment of Matthew 28:19 to the name. This was the doctrine of baptisms followed through by all the disciples and recorded in the Bible. Acts4:12
  • Brian
    Redeemed, you are correct. MOST of us grew up with the same blinders received from religion which only Jesus Christ can remove. It is frustrating to say the least trying to explain things to those with closed ears. Same thing Paul went through in Acts 7:57 "Then they cried out with a loud voice, and STOPPED THEIR EARS, and ran upon him with one accord," We all provided countless scriptures...
