In my name = Aramaic Idiom? Matthew 18:5
Stephen Silver Wrote:Shlama:
The phrase "in my name" is simply "power of attorney". When a lawyer or a notary is given signing authority he is endowed with the authority to carry out the will of the CEO to make executive decisions.

So, how might this apply to matthew 18:5?
Was Jesus giving people the power of attorney to receive children?

I suspect the OP makes a good point. It seems to be so me sort of idiom I think.

Does Matthew chapter 10 read literally "in the name of a disciple"?
If so that passage seems, to me, to indicate something like "in my way".
There seems a suggestion, in Matt 10, that it relates to the/a quality of the person.
