A study of “The Great Commission.”
Why do we tell people about Jesus? Who is called to be a missionary? Are we working to fulfill The Great Commission?
The Crucifixion and Resurrection of Jesus.
All of mankind is separated from God because of sin.
- The Fall of Mankind: Genesis 3
Jesus “The Messiah” came to solve this problem by becoming the most perfect sacrifice possible. He died to permanently pay for the sins of humanity.
- A permanent solution to the problem of sin: John 8:31-36
- The Crucifixion: Matthew 27:32-54, Mark 15:21-39, Luke 23:26-48, John 19:16-30
Death was ultimately defeated by the Resurrection.
Jesus lives again.
Jesus appears to his family, friends, and disciples numerous times after the Resurrection.
The Great Commission
Jesus tells us that we are all missionaries.
Jesus instructs us to share the gospel and make disciples.
He seals this final command with a promise.
