Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Matthew 10:41

_ _ He that receiveth a prophet — one divinely commissioned to deliver a message from heaven. Predicting future events was no necessary part of a prophet’s office, especially as the word is used in the New Testament.

_ _ in the name of a prophet — for his office’s sake and love to his master. (See 2 Kings 4:9 and see on 2 Kings 4:10).

_ _ shall receive a prophet’s reward — What an encouragement to those who are not prophets! (See John 3:5-8).

_ _ and he that receiveth a righteous man in the name of a righteous man — from sympathy with his character and esteem for himself as such

_ _ shall receive a righteous man’s reward — for he must himself have the seed of righteousness who has any real sympathy with it and complacency in him who possesses it.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Matthew 10:16-42.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Matthew 10:41

He that entertaineth a prophet — That is, a preacher of the Gospel: In the name of a prophet — That is, because he is such, shall share in his reward.
