Lesson

The theology of Great Commission found in culminating texts in Matthew, Mark, Luke and John and reinforced in Acts 1:8.  Jesus gives us the mandate and the authority to proclaim the gospel publicly. The church is intended to be a public gathering not a selective cult. Discipling all nations is about affecting whole societies.  "Nations" means people groups, not a geographic or political entity. The emphasis in Matthew is making disciples.
