Two Commissions

Missed the sermon? Never mind, you can pick it up here: GO!

Read Matthew 28: 11-20

  1. In the first 5 verses discuss how each of the characters mentioned responded to the resurrection, i.e., what did they do, what did they say and why?
  2. In the sermon those first 5 verses were described as what (in comparison with the last 5). Discuss as a group why it is important:
    1. to be aware of what the enemy wants;
    2. understand the enemies tactics;
    3. to fully understand the enemy is defeated?
  3. Some doubted… discuss.
  4. Jesus delivers his “commission” sandwiched between a statement (verse 18) and another encouraging instruction (verse 20b). discuss what difference that should make to us.
  5. Talk through the instruction to Go and… (verses 19 and 20a), considering as you go: what is a disciple, how do you make disciples, what is baptism and why is it important? Why in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit?
