What About Matthew 28:19?
A friend of mine asked why we as Apostolics ignore the words of Jesus, in favor of those of Peter.
So should we obey Matthew 28:19. Absolutely yes, context, context, context. Matthew, Mark and Luke all recorded the events of the day of the resurrection of Jesus. In Matthews account, he says in the name of the father, (father not a name) of the son (son is not a name) and of the holy ghost (holy ghost is not a name.) Mark went for simplicity. He summarizes it by simply saying, he that believes and is baptized shall be saved Mark 16:16. But Luke goes into more detail. Luke 24:45-49
45 Then opened he their understanding, that they might the scriptures.
46 And said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behoved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead on the third day:
47 And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations beginning at Jerusalem.
48 And ye are witnesses of these things.
49 And behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high.
Connect the dots, context, context, context. It all connects to Acts 2:38 . When you obey Acts 2:38 you obey Matthew 28:19.
