“Hear Ye Him”

Matthew 17:1-13

slide2

Matthew 17:1-5

And after six days Jesus taketh Peter, James, and John his brother, and bringeth them up into an high mountain apart, And was transfigured before them: and his face did shine as the sun, and his raiment was white as the light. And, behold, there appeared unto them Moses and Elias talking with him. Then answered Peter, and said unto Jesus, Lord, it is good for us to be here: if thou wilt, let us make here three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias. While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him.

Matthew 17:6-13

And when the disciples heard it, they fell on their face, and were sore afraid. And Jesus came and touched them, and said, Arise, and be not afraid. And when they had lifted up their eyes, they saw no man, save Jesus only. And as they came down from the mountain, Jesus charged them, saying, Tell the vision to no man, until the Son of man be risen again from the dead. And his disciples asked him, saying, Why then say the scribes that Elias must first come? And Jesus answered and said unto them, Elias truly shall first come, and restore all things. But I say unto you, That Elias is come already, and they knew him not, but have done unto him whatsoever they listed. Likewise shall also the Son of man suffer of them. Then the disciples understood that he spake unto them of John the Baptist

Matthew 17:1-5

And after six days Jesus taketh Peter, James, and John his brother, and bringeth them up into an high mountain apart, And was transfigured before them: and his face did shine as the sun, and his raiment was white as the light. And, behold, there appeared unto them Moses and Elias talking with him. Then answered Peter, and said unto Jesus, Lord, it is good for us to be here: if thou wilt, let us make here three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias. While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him.

“Men often have suggested that additional tabernacles be built, and they have built them! Despite the fact that the Lord has pitched ‘the true tabernacle,’ the church which he has purchased with his own blood, men have not been content therewith (Heb. 8:2). Moses built his house, but, now, Christ has built his. He reigns ‘over his own house,’ the church, ‘whose house are we’ (Cf. 1 Pet. 2:5).

Despite that, Joseph Smith built his Mormon tabernacle or church. Others, disregarding the objections of Martin Luther, set up the Lutheran denomination. Earlier, others had erected Baptist churches. Later, some would assemble the Methodist system of faith. Without divine permission, men raised up their tabernacles. Unlike Peter, they did not stop to say, ‘Lord, if thou wilt.’ However, the response is the same today as it was when Peter asked permission, ‘This is my beloved Son...hear ye him.’”

Adam Clark on “hear ye Him”

“The disciples wished to detain Moses and Elijah that they might hear them: but God shows that the law which had been in force, and the prophets which had prophesied, until now, must all give place to Jesus; and he alone must now be attended to, as the way, the truth, and the life; for no man could now come unto the Father but through him.”(Adam Clark’s Commentary)

matthew 10 limited commission
Matthew 10 – Limited Commission
  • Apostles commanded to go only to the Jews:
    • “Lost sheep of the house of Israel” (vs.6).
  • Preach Kingdom of heaven is at hand (vs.7).
  • Heal the sick, cleanse lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils (vs. 8).
  • Provide nothing physical (vs. 9-10).
  • Respect every house (vs. 13).
  • Leave those who would not hear and receive the truth (vs. 14).
  • Doom pronounced on those who reject the truth (vs. 15).
  • Expect persecutions (vs. 16-18).
mathew 10 14 20
Mathew 10:14-20
  • (14) And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear your words, when ye depart out of that house or city, shake off the dust of your feet…(19) But when they deliver you up, take no thought how or what ye shall speak: for it shall be given you in that same hour what ye shall speak. (20) For it is not ye that speak, but the Spirit of your Father which speaketh in you.

Christ Speaks Thru His Apostles
  • For I have given unto them the words which thou gavest me; and they have received them, and have known surely that I came out from thee, and they have believed that thou didst send me (Jn. 17:8)

  • 1 Corinthians 2:9-13
  • 1 Corinthians 14:37
  • Ephesians 3:3-5
  • Galatians 1:11-12
  • 2 Peter 1:21

Therefore, the words of the Apostles are equal in authority to the words of Christ – Matt. 16:19

matthew 16 19
Matthew 16:19
  • And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.
clinton hamilton on matthew 16 19
Clinton Hamilton on Matthew 16:19
  • Since God has so emphatically declared that the scriptures are His product, the result of His out-breathing, what does that say about the authority of scripture? Jesus asserted that scripture cannot be broken (Jn. 10:34,35). The word broken means to loose or to take out of effect. The point is, that whatever God bound cannot be loosed. The same word is used by John the Baptist when he stated that he was not worthy to loose the latchet of Christ's shoes. What God has tied, no man can loose. What the apostles by the authority of Christ bound on earth had already been bound in heaven and what they loosed on earth had already been loosed in heaven (Matt. 16:19; 18:18).

    • Eph. 6:19, 20
2 corinthians 5 18 20

  • And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation; (19) To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation. (20) Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God.
ephesians 6 20
Ephesians 6:20
  • For which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.
ambassador defined
“Ambassador” Defined

“An official envoy; especially: a diplomatic agent of the highest rank accredited to a foreign government or sovereign as the resident representative of his own government or sovereign or appointed for a special and often temporary diplomatic assignment.”

hodge on ambassadors
Hodge on “Ambassadors”

"An ambassador is at once a messenger and a representative. He does not speak in his own name. He does not act on his own authority. What he communicates is not his own opinions or demands, but simply what he has been told or commissioned to say. His message derives no part of its importance or trustworthiness from him. At the same time he is more than a mere messenger. He represents his sovereign. He speaks with authority, as accredited to him in the name of his master."

Charles Hodge, Commentary on the Second Epistle to the Corinthians, p. 146)
