For Them Or For Us?

Q

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?

A

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.
