The Twelve

September 20, 2020

Bible Text: Mark 6:6-13, 30-31 |


As we continue in our series on the Gospel of Mark, we come to a distinct transition in the ministry strategy of Jesus. Prior to this event of sending out the Twelve, if the Word of God was heard, it was heard coming from Him. If the power of God was displayed, it was displayed through Him. By sending out the twelve as delegates of His message and His power, Jesus is foreshadowing the ministry plan of the Father: moving from one teacher to twelve, from twelve to hundreds, from hundreds to thousands, from thousands to millions. In the sending of the original twelve we also find some principles that are meant to direct ministry still to this day.
