Matthew 28:1-20

  1. Note the foremost place taken by women disciple in the story of the resurrection appearances.
    Why should this be (cf. John 14:21)?
    Contrast the effect of the news of the resurrection on the disciples with the response of Christ’s enemies recorded in verses 11-15.
    How does this prove the truth of Luke 16:30, 31?
  2. Verses 18-20. Note the fourfold repetition of the word ‘all’ in Christ’s final commission.
    What is the threefold task given to the Christian church?
    Are we obeying, as we ought to do, in the light of:
    (a) Christ’s authority, and
    (b) the promise of his presence?
