The Apostle Matthew writes, “Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Matthew 28:18,19,20
John Mark writes, “And he said to them, “Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation.” Mark 16:15
Were they, in essence, saying the same thing?
Are Jesus’ commands part of “The Gospel?”
Are Making Disciples and Proclaiming the Gospel the same activity?
