A. Jesus commanded them in what is known as the great commission:
MAT 28:19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
MAT 28:20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, [even] unto the end of the age. Amen.
MAR 16:15 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.
MAR 16:16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.
B. Luke records for us some of the last words that Jesus spoke to His disciples just before ascending into heaven as He:
LUK 24:45 Opened their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures,
LUK 24:46 And He said unto them, It was necessary that the Messiah suffer, and rise from the dead the third day that the scripture be fulfilled:
LUK 24:47 And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.
LUK 24:48 And ye are witnesses of these things.
LUK 24:49 And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high.
Act 1:8 But you will receive power after the Holy Spirit has come upon you and you shall be witnesses of Me, both in Jerusalem, and all of Judea and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost parts of the earth.
C. What were they to preach and testify? That Jesus was the One who was ordained by God to be the judge of those who were alive and those who were dead.
1. Jesus said:
JOH 5:22 For the Father judges no man, but hath committed all judgment unto the Son:
JOH 5:26 For as the Father hath life in Himself; so has He given to the Son to have life in Himself;
JOH 5:27 And has given Him authority to execute judgment also, because He is the Son of man.
2. Paul said to the philosophers on Mars hill:
Act 17:31 Because He has appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by [that] man whom He has ordained; [whereof] He has given assurance unto all [men], in that He has raised him from the dead.
3. Writing to the Romans he said:
ROM 2:16 In the day when God shall judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ according to my gospel.
a. The secrets of men, is a reference to the secret motive behind the works that we have done for the Lord.
b. Paul wrote to the Corinthians:
1CO 3:13 Every man's work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man's work of what sort it is.
4. Again he wrote to the Corinthians, "For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ Knowing therefore the terror of the Lord we seek to persuade men.
a. Jesus referred to this judgment in Matthew 25
MAT 25:14 For [the kingdom of heaven is] as a man traveling into a far country, [who] called his own servants, and delivered unto them his goods.
MAT 25:15 And unto one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one; to every man according to his several ability; and straightway took his journey.
MAT 25:16 Then he that had received the five talents went and traded with the same, and made [them] other five talents.
MAT 25:17 And likewise he that [had received] two, he also gained other two.
MAT 25:18 But he that had received one went and dug in the earth, and hid his lord's money.
MAT 25:19 After a long time the lord of those servants cometh, and reckoned with them.
MAT 25:20 And so he that had received five talents came and brought other five talents, saying, Lord, thou delivered unto me five talents: behold, I have gained beside them five talents more.
MAT 25:21 His lord said unto him, Well done, [thou] good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.
MAT 25:22 He also that had received two talents came and said, Lord, thou delivered unto me two talents: behold, I have gained two other talents beside them.
MAT 25:23 His lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.
MAT 25:24 Then he which had received the one talent came and said, Lord, I knew thee that thou art an hard man, reaping where thou hast not sown, and gathering where thou hast not planted:
MAT 25:25 And I was afraid, and went and hid thy talent in the earth: lo, [there] thou hast [that is] yours.
MAT 25:26 His lord answered and said unto him, [Thou] wicked and slothful servant, thou knew that I reap where I sowed not, and gather where I have not planted:
MAT 25:27 You should have at least put my money to the bank, and [then] at my coming I should have received My own with interest.
MAT 25:28 Take therefore the talent from him, and give [it] unto him which hath ten talents.
MAT 25:29 For unto every one that hath shall be given, and he shall have abundance: but from him that hath not shall be taken away even that which he hath.
MAT 25:30 And cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
b. This is no doubt what Paul meant when he said, We must all stand before the judgment seat of Christ, knowing therefore the terror of the Lord, we seek to persuade men.
c. How much has God invested with you?
d. Even more important than that, "What are you doing with it?"
5. To Timothy Paul wrote:
2TI 4:1 I charge [thee] therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom;
6. Jesus described this judgment in Matthew 25. This in fact is the first order of business when He returns to the earth to set up the Kingdom of God. He will judge those who are worthy to enter the Kingdom.
MAT 25:31 When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory:
MAT 25:32 And before Him shall be gathered all nations: and He shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divides [his] sheep from the goats:
MAT 25:33 And He shall set the sheep on His right hand, but the goats on the left.
MAT 25:34 Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:
MAT 25:41 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:
A. The scripture quoted Jesus as saying: "Lo I have come, in the volume of the book it is written of Me, to do Thy will O God."
B. Jesus told the Jews, "You do search the scriptures because in them you think that you have eternal life, but they testify of Me, and you will not come to Me that you might have life."
C. Luke tells us that Jesus said to the two disciples on the road to Emmaus:
LUK 24:25 O fools, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken: Ought not Christ to have suffered these things, and to enter into His glory?
LUK 24:27 And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, He expounded unto them in all the scriptures the things concerning Himself.
D. To the disciples that night Jesus said:
LUK 24:44 These [are] the words which I spoke unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and [in] the prophets, and [in] the psalms, concerning me.
LUK 24:45 Then opened He their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures,
LUK 24:46 And said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it was necessary for the Messiah to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day:
E. When Philip called Nathanael to come and meet Jesus he said:
JOH 1:45 We have found Him, of whom Moses in the law, and the prophets, did write, Jesus of Nazareth.
F. When Paul and his company had come to Thessalonica we read:
Act 17:2 And Paul, as his manner was, went in unto them, and three sabbath days reasoned with them out of the scriptures,
Act 17:3 Opening and alleging, that the Messiah had to suffer and rise again the third day and that this Jesus that I preach to you is the Messiah.
G. We read concerning Appolos:
Act 18:28 That he mightily convinced the Jews, [and that] publicly, showing by the scriptures that Jesus was Christ.
1. All of the references to the scriptures here are of course the Old Testament scriptures.
H. When Paul was giving his defense before King Agrippa, he said: As I have witnessed to everyone, I have said nothing more than the things that the prophets and Moses have said should come.
ROM 1:1 Paul, a servant of Jesus Christ, called [to be] an apostle, separated unto the gospel of God,
ROM 1:2 (Which he had promised before by his prophets in the holy scriptures,)
ROM 1:3 Concerning his Son Jesus Christ our Lord, which was made of the seed of David according to the flesh;
A. Isaiah prophesied:
ISA 28:16 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner [stone], a sure foundation: he that believeth shall not make haste.
1. Paul in quoting that passage to the Romans said:
ROM 9:33 As it is written, Behold, I lay in Sion a stumblingstone and rock of offence: and whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.
2. Peter quoting the same passage said:
1PE 2:6 Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture, Behold, I lay in Sion a chief corner stone, elect, precious: and he that believeth on him shall not be confounded.
