the great commission

The Great Commission

The Great Commission must be distinguished from the Limited Commission (Luke 10). The Great Commission is great because of its scope and the covered territory. It was the springboard for first century Christianity. The Great Commission is linked to two great events: The resurrection (Luke 24: 46, 47) and Pentecost (Luke 24: 49, Acts 1: 8). It is rooted in the Lordship of Jesus (Matt. 28: 18, 19, Acts 2: 32, 33, 36).

“18: And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.19: Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: 20: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen” (Matt. 28).

the great commission14

The Great Commission


Ten days after Jesus commissioned the twelve, the Great Commission began (Acts 2). The charge to, “…preach the gospel to the world” was fulfilled in about 26 years (Rom. 10: 18). The church and individuals today have a responsibility to preach the same gospel (I Tim. 3: 15, Phili. 2: 16). Men and women are made disciples in precisely the same way today (cp. Gal. 1: 6-9).
