Week 2 May
Topic: Why Witness And to Whom?
a. When Jesus came to the world His
assignment was to represent the Father to the Jews and the entire human race,
John 8:12-19. His mission had been
predicted by several Old Testament Prophets, Micah 5:2, Isaiah 9:6&7,
b. Given the enormity of the task He
appointed 12 disciples and later another 70 to assist Him to promote the
message of salvation, to emphasize the need for repentance, as a precondition
for entry into the kingdom of God, Luke 13:22-24.
c. These were the initial testifiers, those
he taught and empowered Matt. 10:8 to whom He released the secrets of the kingdom,
d. Before His death He commissioned them –
asking them to take the gospel beyond Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria, to the
entire world, Acts 1:8
