from glory to glory…

“All authority has been given to Me…”

… for such a time as this… 

Jesus commissions disciples

…Jesus the Risen King

(The Gospel Project for Kids – Fall 2017 Quarter)

For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures.” 

1 Corinthians 15.3-4

Bible Passage: Matthew 28.16-20

Jesus commissionsAfter Jesus’ resurrection, He spent 40 days reviewing the things He had taught His disciples about the Kingdom of God…

During those 40 days, Jesus appeared to more than 500 people. Many of them wondered if Jesus would restore the kingdom of Israel

Jesus has always been “about the Father’s business:” to declare and increase the Kingdom of God. He told the 11 disciples to go to a mountain in Galilee where He would meet with them…

On that mountain, the 11 disciples could see all the lands they had traveled with Jesus, stretching for miles and miles below them…

Jesus announced to them that all authority in Heaven and on earth belongs to Him. He told them to go tell this to all the nations.


Jesus is the Risen King because He took up His life again…

To show that He has overcome the corruption of this world…

To show that He has overcome the power of our own Nasty I-SIN heart

To show that He has overcome the power of Satan (Genesis 3.15)…

To show that He has overcome the despairs of death and hell…

All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go…and make disciples…and I am with you always…”

–Matthew 28.18-20
