After Jesus Left Them

After Jesus Left Them

Passage: Luke 24:44-49

Speaker: Dr. Steven Laufer

Series: After Jesus Left Them

Category: Sunday Sermons

Keywords: discipleship, evangelism, mission

So many in Israel thought that the coming of the Messiah would mark the end of the story. Israel would be free, a new king would reign, and the rest would be easy. But the establishing of a new, spiritual Kingdom would take time. Many people would be added in the future that were not currently followers of Jesus, especially people from the Gentile nations. And so, the story continues, as Jesus sent out his disciples then, and sends out his disciples now, to make disciples of all nations, to proclaim the good news of his salvation, and to expand the Kingdom of God until the time that he would return. (Luke 24:44-49, Matt 28:16-20)
