“Go ye therefore, and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them into the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit: teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I commanded you: and lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world” (Matthew 28:19-20).
Thus Jesus commanded His Apostles as the “Great Commission.” How important is the command to “go” and “teach”? What about “come and see”? What should be done with the attitude which says, however explicitly or implicitly, “we have the truth, and if they are interested, they should come and find us”? Join Ethan and Raja as they explore Jesus’ imperative to go and teach the Gospel!
One of the two that heard John speak, and followed him, was Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother.
He findeth first his own brother Simon, and saith unto him, “We have found the Messiah” (which is, being interpreted, Christ).
He brought him unto Jesus.
Jesus looked upon him, and said, “Thou art Simon the son of John: thou shalt be called Cephas” (which is by interpretation, Peter).
On the morrow he was minded to go forth into Galilee, and he findeth Philip: and Jesus saith unto him, “Follow me.”
Now Philip was from Bethsaida, of the city of Andrew and Peter.
Philip findeth Nathanael, and saith unto him, “We have found him, of whom Moses in the law, and the prophets, wrote, Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph.”
And Nathanael said unto him, “Can any good thing come out of Nazareth?”
Philip saith unto him, “Come and see” (John 1:40-46).
