The IVP New Testament Commentary Series – Opposition and Empowerment (10:16-20)
Opposition and Empowerment (10:16-20)

Jesus sends his disciples (v. 16), persecution becomes an opportunity for testimony (v. 18), and the Spirit of prophecy will provide the words (v. 20). Once the church faced persecution but possessed Jesus' power; now the church possesses more of the world's power but less of Jesus (compare Thurman 1981:11-12).
