• Would 1 Corinthians 15:24-28 give us the answer as to who gave Jesus all this authority listed at Matt 28:18?

    (1 Corinthians 15:24-28) Next, the end, when he hands over the Kingdom to his God and Father, when he has brought to nothing all government and all authority and power. 25 For he must rule as king until God has put all enemies under his feet. 26 And the last enemy, death, is to be brought to nothing. 27 For God “subjected all things under his feet.” But when he says that ‘all things have been subjected,’ it is evident that this does not include the One who subjected all things to him. 28 But when all things will have been subjected to him, then the Son himself will also subject himself to the One who subjected all things to him, that God may be all things to everyone. (American Standard) 24 Then cometh the end, when he shall deliver up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have abolished all rule and all authority and power. 25 For he must reign, till he hath put all his enemies under his feet. 26 The last enemy that shall be abolished is death. 27 For, He put all things in subjection under his feet. But when he saith, All things are put in subjection, it is evident that he is excepted who did subject all things unto him. 28 And when all things have been subjected unto him, then shall the Son also himself be subjected to him that did subject all things unto him, that God may be all in all

  • At Matt 28:18 we read “ (AS) And Jesus came to them and spake unto them, saying, All authority hath been given unto me?

    For those that don’t speak spake, lieth, thy, tho and themth (New World Translation) Jesus approached and spoke to them, saying: “All authority has been given me in heaven and on the earth. We know this is Jesus speaking and we know this is after he has risen from the grave, so just who is it that has given Jesus this authority?
