Bible Passage: Matthew 10:5-15
The first time Christ commissions the disciples to go out and preach takes place in Matthew 10. In effect, a first edition of the lessons of Evangelism. There are obvious differences in this commission and the final “Great Commission” in Matthew 28. In looking at the similarities and the differences in these two commissions we can gain insight into Christ’s instruction on evangelism, not only for these disciples for us as well.
