A brief reflection on Matthew 10:17-23

     In this passage, Jesus gives a speech to the disciples about potential persecution.  It is crucial to remember that these are specific instructions Jesus is giving as he is sending the twelve disciples out in a ministry to Israel (see 10:5).  Though it may be easy to read this passage as being more universally applicable to Jesus’ followers, in verse 5:23 Jesus admits that “you will not finish going through the cities of Israel before the Son of Man comes.”  Additionally, all of the scenarios given in 17-21 refer mostly to situations within Jewish life and culture.  The implication is that the persecution of which Jesus speaks will primarily only be a result of their ministry through Israel, which will be somehow interrupted or altered by the “coming of the Son of Man.”   Now that the “Son of Man” has come—as in, now that the resurrected Jesus Christ has been revealed in all glory—we need not look to being hated as the necessary confirmation of a successful ministry.

I could not let that last comment be your only comment.

Was the son of man coming in glory the resurrection? Or was it speaking of judgment that vindicated the church over the temple (ala AD70). That Dan 7 language seems to me more fitting of Mark 13 type events.

By the way, the Bible is beautiful, don't let that last post fool you. Blog more. Take a paper and make 5 blogs out of it...

This is an interesting point. I am not sure I quite agree though. Can we say that he "came in glory" when he was resurrected? It seems that coming in glory is described as a change in the complete countenance of the body etc. He was later transfigured and departed in glory, but the coming in glory seems to be for a later date.

However, I do think that it is true that you shouldn't LOOK for persecution. That is a matyr complex and can't be healthy. Now, if it is legitimate we have to face it with bravery, but searching for it is clearly misguided.
