Matthew Chapter 28 Discussion

  • Willis A Thoen on Matthew 28
    What is your explanation of the difference between Acts 2:38 and Matthew 28:19. Thank you.
  • Michael on Matthew 28
    Thanks for the commentary. very enlightening and helpful. Jesus rose from the grave on Sunday, the first day of the week. That was a great victory over death. Is that the reason why the seventh day sabbath was done away with? Can you give me some texts to support this view?
  • 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.
  • Albert on Matthew 28
    The Great Commission of Matthew 28:19 is one of the greatest commands in the Bible. Jesus told his disciples to "GO". We are to go therefore and teach all nations baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the HolyGhost. Baptism is essential. If it were not, Jesus would not have given us this command. We Must baptize by immersion, the way they did it in biblical times, in the NAME of the Father, and of the Son, and HolyGhost. Father, Son, and HolyGhost are not a single name. So what is the name of the Father, and what is the name of the Son, and what is the name of the HolyGhost. Jesus said in St. John 17:6 that He manifested the name of the Father to the world. Colossians clearly tells us that all of Godhead rest in Jesus(Colossians 2:9). Therefore, we are to be baptized in the Name of Jesus. None of the apostles baptized using the titles Father, Son, and HolyGhost. They understood the Great Commission that He gave them. Jesus is the Name of the Father, Son, and the HolyGhost. He is the Father in creation. All things were made by Him(John1:3). He is the Son in redemption; for without the shedding of blood, there would be no remission of sin. God is a Spirit. The invisible God became visible in flesh(John1:14; Isaiah 40:3; 1Timothy3:16; Revelation 1:13; Colossians 2:9, etc) Jesus is the HolyGhost that fell on believers in the upper room (Acts 2:4). No one in biblical times was baptized any other way--except in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. This Great Commission is going all over the world. Jesus is the Messiah, He is the name of Savior of the world. Neither is there salvation in any other for there is no other name under heaven given whereby we must be saved(Acts 4:12). Therefore, we must adhere to the words of the Great Commission given by our Savior and go into the world baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the HolyGhost. Teaching them to observe all things, and lo I am with you even unto the end of the world

    God bless you brother Albert

    I agree with you 100%. It is not often that you hear someone saying the great truth that Jesus Christ is the Name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. May I ask where did you learn this?

    For me, I listened to the preaching of William Branham to get the revelation of baptism. Oh what a wonderful time that was in my life! Being filled with truth - and knowing that you know it is Thus Sayeth The Lord. Hallelujah!

    Peace & Love in Christ
  • Carla Zgabay on Matthew 28
    Was Mary Magdelen a prositute?
  • Robert Butts on Matthew 28:20
    What are "all things whatsoever I have commanded you" in Matthew 28:20?
  • Sort of - in Reply on Matthew 28:19
    To be saved you must repent. Live repentance. Baptism is an outward showing of spiritual commitment to Jesus Christ. One can be baptized by a preacher but still may not turn away from sin and live in repentance. Being baptized by a man is one thing, being baptized by the Holy Spirit is another.

    Many (different groups)argue and debate this but if you read the Bible Jesus speaks specifically on this. The KJV Study Bible also includes commentary on the subject.

    I find baptism to be very important for personal reasons. Feeling a literal washing away of sin through water. Though, the Holy Spirit will baptize your heart where no water can touch.

    Be baptized and live repentance.

    Yes. Yes and yes.
  • Sandi on Matthew 28
    Why dont people pray according to Jesus' directions? He says to pray the 'Our Father" but we pray specifically?
  • Alexander BarMikiel - in Reply on Matthew 28
    I'll give you one better, why don't people follow his commandment to "call none father except our father in heaven?" Or one better still, why was the martyr Antipas( rev 2) called that? his name literally means anti-pater, or father. But he was very obviously godly. So what father was he being "anti" to? Then, when did Pastors start being called Father's? We are called to be Judges, and that isn't only as in law judges, but like the book. In Judges they're called Deliverers of the people. But there's an issue with it, in Judges things get really bad really quick. Judges is summed up by the last verse, "in those days there was no king in Israel, every man did what was right in their own eyes." Many Christians have no king, so they do what is right in their own eyes. So, that is the answer to your question.
  • A bible believer - in Reply on Matthew 28
    that was to the church who didnt really know God. For example if I barely knew you I would say"Hey, Joe" buut if I really knew you that I would talk diferently and if you were my best friend I could talk to you about personal topics.
  • Will - in Reply on Matthew 28
    Christ did not command everyone to pray. That was commanded to the Israelites to pray "Our Father"...

    That is why it starts off "Our Father" Not Everyone Father
  • Dina Kobson on Matthew 28
    Why was Paul so much concern about the perilous time. Was it a prophecy or discernment into the future
  • Alexander BarMikiel - in Reply on Matthew 28
    He said, many ravenous wolves will come among you, even now. He also said even now there are many anti-Christs. Paul was concerned for his brothers and sisters, but more for God's sake. He knew things were going to get really bad. in 70, the siege of Jerusalem, 100-300 the age of martyrs. 330-600 the age of the emperor's control on the church. If you were a follower of anything deemed "Jewish like" that includes praying, tithing to your pastor and not the empire, keeping Sabbath on a day not set by the Romans, refusing to fight in expansionist wars, reading the old testament, etc... you could be put to death, and it happened often. Then came 600-700, the age of the schism. People know about Greece and Rome, orthodox vs catholic, but they don't know about Bulgaria and Maphyiastite. Bulgaria kept a 7th day sabbath and Kosher, Maphyiastite didn't believe in trinity or state control of the church. they were hunted as heretics. 700-900, the Muslim invasion of Europe and Rome, as well as the "heathen invasion of Rome proper". Then came 900-1000 vikings, then 1000-1400 Crusades, where the name of God was vilified even more. Then came the "renaissance" when they started saying, "well, God didn't mean that." Not to mention Dante's inferno and that heretical piece of garbage that was used to scare people away from hell and into "heaven". Then there was the age of discovery and the "evangelizing" of America. Again, God's name was vilified and tarnished by people claiming to love him. Then the reformation happened and a huge war that claimed a million Christians on both sides. Then the Cossacks eradicated the Jews and Gypsies from Russia in "God's name". Then WW1, then WW2. Christians have been through a lot, and a lot of it was because of wolves and anti-christs that rose up within the midst.
  • Alex on Matthew 28
    My comments on the Godhead which is an expression of the kingdom of God a SPRITUAL KINGDOM .Its simply Father Son and Granson just like Abraham issac and Jacob Thats y God gave us this picture of Abraham Issac and Jacob and the nation of Israel to show us a greater then abraham's seed was coming thru the blood, a greater then natural Israel, an Israel born of the spirit in humanity,GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD ETC. Thats what abraham means exaulted father ,Its really God the Father that wants a posterity like Abraham wanted many children, Jesus was just his 1st born But ya gota realize that God Almighty made a Promise to Christ that he was gonna multiply his seed as the stars of heaven his Word being his Seed THUS AN ISRAEL OF GOD GRANCHILDREN OF GOD ALMIGHTY HIS POSTERITY. A little one shall become a 1000 and a small one a strong nation I the Lord will hasten it in its Time Thats y we have this precious parable of the sower and his Seed the Word and Jesus tells us the good seed are the children of the Kingdom. The sun nor any heat does lite on them simple b/c they are spirits as Jesus said that which is born of the spirit is spirit thats the H.G. THE CHILD OF Promise. When a seed dies it Multiplies. Smite the shephard and the sheep will be scattered then i will turn my hand to the little ones which are his offspring the H.G. PLURAL, GONA BE AS THE STARS OF HEAVEN God Almighty swore by his veryself when he made this PROMISE AND ITS IMPOSSIBLE FOR GOD TO LIE.Thats y he said whosoever receiveth one such child in my name receiveth me, The child he set in their mists was prophetic of this Child coming. When he breathe on them he was impregnating them with his word his seed etc. Thats y he said b/c i have spoken these Words unto you sorrows have filled your hearts,sorrows imply a spritual pregnancy but he said after your child comes your sorrows will be turned into Joy. They were being bornagain of the spirit, they were birthing CHRIST IN THEIR LIVES THE SON OF MAN .Th Granson
  • Alex on Matthew 28
    Psalms 8 v 2 My comments about the babes and sucklings Jesus ( spoke of a new born ) The babes and sucklings are our new innerman that have to be born in US via his seed the Word,whosoever receives one child in my Name receives Me, unless ya receive the Kingdom of God as a lil child you you will in no wise enter there in. Outa of the mouths of babes and sucklings thou has PERFECTED PRAISE, HUMANS cannot praise God like he wd like simply b/c our praise is full of satanic worry that y we must be bornagain of an incorruptible seed even by the words of God. We need to birth a new heart and a new spirit which is the H.G. A NEW INNERMAN which answers to the new earth and new heaven. That our Enemy might be stilled which is our old admaic nature in rank with satan. Remember when they argued which was the greatest Jesus took a Child and set him in their mist trying to tell em the greatest was the H.G. tHE MANCHILD THAT IS GONA RULE AL NATIONS that HAD TO BE BORN IN THEM VIA THAT GOOD SEED THE WORD. That new born BABE desiring the sincere milk of the word is the H.G. THATS y he is saying that which is born of the Spirit is Spirit Thats the H.G. our new heart and new spirit CHRIST in us the Hope of Glory.There is a babe coming in your life that can PRAISE HIM PERFECTLY. When Isaiah saw the Kingdom coming he said unto us a child is born unto us a son is given, the seed of the sower are the seeds of the kingdom that ARE gonna be sown in the hearts of everybody, Jeremiah saw everybody in travail and birth pains,we are gonna birth a baby Christ IN OUR HEARTS AND MINDS AND EVERY FACET OF OUR BODY.Thats y bro. Paul spoke of the whole world being travail for the manifestation of the sons of God.IF I be lifted up i will draw ALL MEN unto me.Thus there is a precious child in your future which is the H.G. A CHILD OF THE KINGDOM, THAT CHILD THAT KNOWS EVERYTHING THE CHILDREN OF PROMISE WHICH ARE THE ISRAEL OF GOD. If ya wanna praise him perfectly ya must birth Christ in your life. gbu

    Verse 19. This is where most christians trip up. It didnt say NAMES it said name. So therefore the Trinity is a heretical idea. And the Bible warns us.
  • Mishael - in Reply on Matthew 28
    The words "trinity" and "triune" are NOT in the Bible.

    You can type them in the Search Box and neither word will come up.

    You can type in GODHEAD and it will fetch all Godhead scriptures.

    I've written on this often. Drop down to near bottom; to the history pages 1-100 and explore past days of comments made.

    Very interesting reading.
  • 1 John 5 - in Reply on Matthew 28
    1 John 5:6

    This is he that came by water and blood, even Jesus Christ, not by water only, but by water and blood.

    And it is the Spirit that beareth witness because the Spirit is truth.

    1 John 5:7

    For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost and these three are one.

    1 John 5:8

    And there are three that bear witness in earth, the Spirit, and the water, and the blood, and these three agree in one.

  • ASHU on Matthew 28
    when Jesus said to Simon called peter and his brother Andrew casting a net into the sea and he said to them "follow me and i will make you fishers of men.

    also in mark 1:17.

    what does Jesus meant by '' I will make you fishers of men''.
  • A Bible believer - in Reply on Matthew 28
    It means to be a evangelist preachers and converters.
  • Mishael - in Reply on Matthew 28
    I just peeked at The Commentary Box.

    It's talking about leaving your job and family, to go on the road to evangelize the lost, heal the sick, cleanse the leper's, etc.

    Ministry would become your new profession. As Chris has said from his ministry days; it's a hard life at times, but fulfilling.

    The poor you'll always have with you.


    Not many people want to be involved in full time or part-time ministry nowadays. It concerns me: The Prayer Request Room needs ministry in there every day. Can't we all give one hour a day to pray for folk?

    This website needs to fix the rooms so there are 3 separate rooms with comment separated by room name.

    There needs to be directions on how to get to the Commentary Box easier.

  • Jesse - in Reply on Matthew 28

    Jesus said, "Come after me." Now, who is this guy? Who can come along and command people to come? And the term "after me" is literally behind me. And Jesus points this out later that the proper position in following Christ is always behind Him.

    So they are casting their nets, they are fishing, they are conducting their business, and Jesus says come, come behind me.

    But notice what He says. He says two things:

    He says first of all, "I will make you." Jesus is the one who makes us to be what He wants us to be. He says "I will make you to become." This shows a process.

    These are important words. Jesus says "I will make you to become fishers of men." This is a play on words. He is basically telling them that they are fishermen, but I'm going to make you fishers of men. You see, they knew how to catch fish. But Jesus is telling them that He will make them be able to catch men and bring them to salvation.

    It is the Spirit of Christ, or Holy Spirit, that makes us to become fishers of men. God persuades us at the right time to witness Christ to others, but it is God who saves them.
  • ASHU - in Reply on Matthew 28
    Jesse thanks very much for your explanation that has thrown more light to my worry .
  • Greg - in Reply on Matthew 28

    The phrase "fishers of men" is a Talmudic expression which means "a fisher of the Law"
  • A Bible believer - in Reply on Matthew 28
    I dont think so... It is just a metaphor. It dosent mean fisher of the LAW. It means evangelists.
