Mark 16:15 emphasizes the breadth and quantity of the sowing He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation.”
Luke 24:46-47 shows the surety of the Great Commission. He told them, “… repentance and forgiveness of sins will be preached in his name to all
John 20:21 shows Jesus as the model of the Great Commission. Again Jesus said, “As the Father has sent me, I am sending you.”
Acts 1:8 speaks of the extent of the Great Commission “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”
