RELEVANCE, INSTRUCTIONS FROM JESUS AND LESSONS CHRISTIANS CAN LEARN FROM THE COMMISSIONING OF THE TWELVE DISCIPLES
THE COMMISSIONING OF THE TWELVE DISCIPLES
Thank you Abigail for the A2A.
First, the commissioning of the twelve disciples can be derived from the book of [Luke 9:1 – 9] it states:-
Luke 9:1 – 9 (New Revised Standard Version (NRSV))
The Mission of the Twelve
9 Then Jesus called the twelve together and gave them power and authority over all demons and to cure diseases, 2 and he sent them out to proclaim the kingdom of God and to heal. 3 He said to them, “Take nothing for your journey, no staff, nor bag, nor bread, nor money—not even an extra tunic. 4 Whatever house you enter, stay there, and leave from there. 5 Wherever they do not welcome you, as you are leaving that town shake the dust off your feet as a testimony against them.” 6 They departed and went through the villages, bringing the good news and curing diseases everywhere.
7 Now Herod the ruler heard about all that had taken place, and he was perplexed, because it was said by some that John had been raised from the dead, 8 by some that Elijah had appeared, and by others that one of the ancient prophets had arisen. 9 Herod said, “John I beheaded; but who is this about whom I hear such things?” And he tried to see him.
