What does business state about “right hand man”?

A right-hand man is a kind of assistant, male or female, relied upon heavily by another. The term comes from the importance of the right hand in performing tasks (since many people are right-handed). There is speculation that "right-hand man" also comes from the idea of a king with his advisor sitting on his right side, but there is little evidence supporting it.


Science has a term “Right-hand rule”, what does this refer to?

What does the Bible state about “At the right hand of”?


In the Bible there is discussion of “at the right hand of God.”

Let’s see what Matthew Henry’s commentary and what the Bible state
about this subject.



Matthew Henry's Concise Commentary on the Bible

Christ's ascension.

After the Lord had spoken he went up into heaven. Sitting is a posture of rest, he had finished his work; and a posture of rule, he took possession of his kingdom. He sat at the right hand of God, which denotes his sovereign dignity and universal power. Whatever God does concerning us, gives to us, or accepts from us, it is by his Son. Now he is glorified with the glory he had before the world. The apostles went forth, and preached every where, far and near . . .

Now let’s look at what Scripture tells us about Christ.

Mark 16:19 (NIV)
19  After the Lord Jesus had spoken to them, he was taken up into heaven and he sat at the right hand of God.

Luke 22:69 (NIV)
69  But from now on, the Son of Man will be seated at the right hand of the mighty God."

Acts 2:32-34 (NIV)
32  God has raised this Jesus to life, and we are all witnesses of the fact.
33  Exalted to the right hand of God, he has received from the Father the promised Holy Spirit and has poured out what you now see and hear.
34  For David did not ascend to heaven, and yet he said,
   " 'The Lord said to my Lord: "Sit at my right hand

Acts 5:30-32 (NIV)
30  The God of our fathers raised Jesus from the dead—whom you had killed by hanging him on a tree.
31  God exalted him to his own right hand as Prince and Savior that he might give repentance and forgiveness of sins to Israel.
32  We are witnesses of these things, and so is the Holy Spirit, whom God has given to those who obey him."

Romans 8:33-35 (NIV)
33  Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is God who justifies.
34  Who is he that condemns? Christ Jesus, who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us.
35  Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword?
