    Clarke's Commentary on Matthew 10:40

    Barnes' Notes on Matthew 10:40

    He that receiveth you ... - In all these three illustrations Christ meant to teach substantially the same thing - that he that would entertain kindly or treat with hospitality himself, his disciples, a prophet, or a righteous man, would show that he approved their character, and should not fail of proper reward. To receive in the "name" of a prophet is to receive "as" a prophet; to do proper honour to his character, and to evince attachment to the cause in which he was engaged.
