The APOSTLES' ministry


Luke 5:31-32

King James Version

31 And Jesus answering said unto them, 

They that are whole need not a physician; 

but they that are sick.

32 I came not to call the righteous, 

but sinners to repentance.

What did JESUS command His 11* apostles?

What was the ministry He instructed them to do?

Scripture tells us more:

Matthew 28:18-20

King James Version

18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, 


All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.

19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, 

baptizing them in the name of the Father, 

and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:

20 Teaching them to observe all things 

whatsoever I have commanded you: 

and, lo, 

I am with you always, 

even unto the end of the world. 


Mark 16:15-18

King James Version

15 And he said unto them

Go ye into all the world, 

and preach the gospel to every creature.

16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; 

but he that believeth not shall be damned.

17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; 

In my name shall they cast out devils; 

they shall speak with new tongues;

18 They shall take up serpents; 

and if they drink any deadly thing, 

it shall not hurt them; 

they shall lay hands on the sick, 

and they shall recover.

Luke 24:44-49

King James Version

44 And he said unto them

These are the words which I spake unto you, 

while I was yet with you, 

that all things must be fulfilled, 

which were written in the law of Moses, 

and in the prophets, 

and in the psalms, 

concerning me.

45 Then opened he their understanding, 

that they might understand the scriptures,

46 And said unto them, 

Thus it is written, 

and thus it behooved Christ to suffer, 

and to rise from the dead the third day:

47 And that repentance and remission of sins 

should be preached in his name 

among all nations, 

beginning at Jerusalem.

48 And ye are witnesses of these things.

49 And, behold, 

I send the promise of my Father upon you: 

but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, 

until ye be endued with power from on high.

After JESUS commanded these things, what happened next?

Mark 16:19-20

King James Version

19 So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, 

he was received up into heaven, 

and sat on the right hand of God.

20 And they went forth, 

and preached every where, 

the Lord working with them, 

and confirming the word with signs following. 


The next post will tell you of a marvelous psalm.

Wherein GOD's WORD was glorified by one king.

*Note: After Judas had betrayed JESUS, He gave the above instructions to the remaining 11 apostles.
