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. Verses 5-16 seem to be intended only for the 12, but the rest of the chapter extends along the time line from the first century to the 21st. For example verses 17-20 apply to the time of the Apostolic church, and 21-23 to the Great Tribulation.
