Mat 28:16-20. 19 make disciples 20 Behold

Imperative: Mat 28:16-20. 19 make disciples 20 Behold

Context: Mat 28:16 Now the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain to which Jesus had directed them.

Mat 28:17 And when they saw him they worshiped him; but some doubted.

Mat 28:18 And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.

Mat 28:19 Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,

Mat 28:20 teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, to the close of the age.”

Exegesis:
There are four basic commands. Go. Baptized. Teach. All of these are a vocabulary form that indicates they are in support of the primary command, to make disciples. Once a person becomes a disciple, they become a better disciple by following the command in verse 20: teach them to observe all the commands of Jesus. This includes the command of the Great Commission itself, that they are likewise to repeat the pattern and make their own disciples.

Mat 28:11-15. While they were going, behold (No imperative)

Imperative: Mat 28:11-15. While they were going, behold (No imperative)
Context: Mat 28:11 While they were going, behold, some of the guard went into the city and told the chief priests all that had taken place.

Mat 28:12 And when they had assembled with the elders and taken counsel, they gave a sum of money to the soldiers

Mat 28:13 and said, “Tell people, ‘His disciples came by night and stole him away while we were asleep.’

Mat 28:14 And if this comes to the governor’s ears, we will satisfy him and keep you out of trouble.”

Mat 28:15 So they took the money and did as they were directed; and this story has been spread among the Jews to this day.

Mat 28:1-10.  9 Greetings! 10 “Do not be afraid; go and tell my brethren 

Imperative: Mat 28:1-10.  9 Greetings! 10 “Do not be afraid; go and tell my brethren 
Context: Mat 28:1 Now after the sabbath, toward the dawn of the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to see the sepulchre.

Mat 28:2 And behold, there was a great earthquake; for an angel of the Lord descended from heaven and came and rolled back the stone, and sat upon it.

Mat 28:3 His appearance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow.

Mat 28:4 And for fear of him the guards trembled and became like dead men.

Mat 28:5 But the angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid; for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified.

Mat 28:6 He is not here; for he has risen, as he said. Come, see the place where he lay.

Mat 28:7 Then go quickly and tell his disciples that he has risen from the dead, and behold, he is going before you to Galilee; there you will see him. Lo, I have told you.”

Mat 28:8 So they departed quickly from the tomb with fear and great joy, and ran to tell his disciples.

Mat 28:9 And behold, Jesus met them and said, “Hail!” And they came up and took hold of his feet and worshiped him.

Mat 28:10 Then Jesus said to them, “Do not be afraid; go and tell my brethren to go to Galilee, and there they will see me.”

Exegesis:

Reflection:
How far is it to Galilee?

Did the disciples ever obey this instruction of Jesus?
7 days later Thomas and they are in the same place. The assumption is Jerusalem. By John 21 the disciples are fishing and Jesus serves them breakfast on the beach. At the time of the Ascension that are commanded to stay in Jerusalem and wait for the power.

What does it mean to go to Galilee? Is this part of the symbol to repeat what was done before? What does Galilee mean symbolically?
