What Is Promised to the Two or Three Who Are Gathered in Jesus’ Name?

“He’s saying his authority is backing them in their judgment, something that God promised in the Mosaic Law. So does this apply to us today? Yes! When church discipline is done, Jesus still backs the authority of those he has put in place to judge, and no one in that position should forget who they’re representing and the gravity of their judgments.”

(Amy K. Hall – Stand to Reason) Since we have spoken in the past here at Stand to Reason about the fact that not every promise made in the Bible applies to us today, I received a question about whether the promise Jesus made to his disciples in Matthew 18:19–20 is a promise we can claim. Here are Jesus’ words:

Again I say to you, that if two of you agree on earth about anything that they may ask, it shall be done for them by My Father who is in heaven. For where two or three have gathered together in My name, I am there in their midst.

Since this seems to be a confusing passage for many (and it’s also an important one since…it’s likely an example of Jesus claiming to be divine), I thought it would be worth sharing my response here. View article →
