APOSTLE is from the Greek “apostlos” which means “a delegate, messenger, one sent forth with orders,” from the verb apo-stellein, “to send out.” And so the apostles (formerly disciples) were sent out by God and specifically by Jesus to proclaim the gospel to the known world and told to make disciples of all nations. (Matt 28:18-20; Acts 1:8)

Many people wrongly assume that the words “apostle” and “disciple” have the same meaning in the New Testament. However, one first has to be trained as a “disciple” (learning from the teacher), before one can be sent out as an “apostle” (representing the teacher). Also, not all “disciples” are necessarily sent out on a particular preaching mission (thereby functioning as “apostles”).

The transformation of Jesus’ favored disciples to their new role of “apostle,” occurred after the Resurrection on the mountain to which Jesus had directed them in Galilee: “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Matt 28:19-20 Jesus gave this command shortly before He ascended into heaven, and it essentially outlines what Jesus expected them to do in His absence.

THE GREAT COMMISSION
Matthew 28:16-20 - 16 Then the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus had told them to go. 17 When they saw him, they worshiped him; but some doubted. 18 Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

This section of Scripture is known as “The Great Commission.” As the last recorded personal directive of the Savior to his disciples, it holds great significance to all followers of Christ. It is the foundation for evangelism and cross-cultural missions work in Christian theology. Because the Lord’s instructions were to go to all nations and that he would be with us until the very end of the age, Christians of all generations have embraced this command. It is not The Great Suggestion, rather the Lord has commanded us to put our faith in action.
