The Great Commission

Just before Jesus ascended to be with the Father some 40 days after his resurrection, He gathered with His disciples and commanded them to make other disciples and teach them to follow Him also. This command is called the Great Commission and can be found in Matthew 28:19-20, Mark 16:15, Luke 24:46-49, and Acts 1:8. These Great Commission Bible activities are related to the Great Commission Jesus gave prior to His ascension.
