Bible mentions people worshiping Jesus

February 11, 2010

Here is another post about Bible mentioning how people worshiped Jesus.

Matthew 28:8-9

And they left the tomb quickly with fear and great joy and ran to report it to His disciples. And behold, Jesus met them and greeted them. And they came up and took hold of His feet and worshiped Him.

Matthew 28:16-17

But the eleven disciples proceeded to Galilee, to the mountain which Jesus had designated. When they saw Him, they worshiped Him; but some were doubtful.

Matthew 4: 10

Then Jesus said to him, “Go, Satan! For it is written , ‘You shall worship the Lord your God, and serve Him only.'”

Jesus never told His deciples to not worship Him. Why? Because Jesus is God. He received worship because He deserves it.

Let us do as His disciples. Take hold of His feet and worship Jesus.


Worship Jesus

Here is my second post for a verse that talks of people worshipping Jesus. Here is my first.

Matthew 14: 33

And those who were in the boat worshipped Him, saying, “You are certainly God’s Son!”

Why is it important to me to note people worshipped Jesus? I grew up in Jehovah’s Witness organization. They taught we are not to worship Jesus; we are to worship Jehovah God only.

But Bible mentioned people worshipped Jesus and Jesus received their worship. He did not tell them not to worship Him. In other places in the Bible, Angels have told people not to worship them because they are only messengers. However, Jesus did not. People worshipped Him and Jesus let them worship. Why?

Because He is God.
