From Disciples to Brothers

August 24th, 2013

I noticed something interesting in Matthew 28 this morning. After Jesus was resurrected He called the disciples brothers, not disciples.

In Matthew 28:10 says… Then Jesus said to them, “Do not be afraid. Go and tell my brothers to go to Galilee; there they will see me.”

After the resurrection Jesus declared that His God was now their God, and His Father their Father.

Through resurrection, the disciples had become the brothers of Jesus. The adoption process was complete.

It is the same for us today. When we receive Christ, we are adopted into God’s eternal family. Our adoption is complete too.

I just found this interesting. I had never noticed or focussed on that before when reading it.

God Bless,
Dave
