For Them Or For Us?


I was going through Matthew 10: 5-16 and I wondered… Is this a passage just referring to the disciples, or all of his followers to this day?



Matthew 10 Contains instructions for both the disciples who were going out alone for the first time and for all who would follow. Matthew 10:5-16 seem to be intended only for the 12, but the rest of the chapter extends along the timeline from the first century to the 21st. For example Matthew 10:17-20 apply to the time of the Apostolic church, and Matthew 10:21-23 to the Great Tribulation.
