Welcome to the conclusion of Jesus in HD! It's been 205 podcasts in coming, but here it is. On deck, Peter in HD and the bright and beautiful book of Acts. That will be next week. But for now, it is universally referred to as “Great Commission.” As you are about to hear in this PODCAST… Yes, I will readily agree that Jesus’ words here at the tail-end of Matthew’s glorious gospel are indeed “great.” And yes, they do in fact contain a “commission.” Jesus’ final commission to His disciples, to make disciples. But I would prefer to think of this as Jesus’ Ministry Model — both in terms of what He wants us (all of us, each of us) to do, and how He wants us to do it. A ministry model that Jesus intended for us to follow (as Jesus said) “to the very end of the age.” Please remember that depending upon your web browser and connection speed, it may take up to 60 seconds for this podcast to begin to play. God bless you richly as you listen.
