JESUS instructs His APOSTLES


John 20:21-22

King James Version

21 Then said Jesus to them again, 

Peace be unto you: 

as my Father hath sent me, even so send I you.

22 And when he had said this, 

he breathed on them, and saith unto them, 

Receive ye the Holy Ghost:

We know what happened after JESUS died.

We know how the LORD's burial was.

We know what happened when He was resurrected.

We also know how He appeared to His disciples.

Now, it's time to hear the LORD's last instructions and fellowship with His apostles before He ascended to heaven.

Let the three first gospels tell us:

Matthew 28:16-20

King James Version

16 Then the eleven disciples went away into Galilee, 

into a mountain where Jesus had appointed them.

17 And when they saw him, they worshipped him: 

but some doubted.

18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, 

All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.

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:

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 world. 


Mark 16:15-20

King James Version

15 And he said unto them, 

Go ye into all the world, 

and preach the gospel to every creature.

16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; 

but he that believeth not shall be damned.

17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; 

In my name shall they cast out devils; 

they shall speak with new tongues;

18 They shall take up serpents; 

and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; 

they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.

19 So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, 

he was received up into heaven, 

and sat on the right hand of God.

20 And they went forth, 

and preached every where, 

the Lord working with them, 

and confirming the word 

with signs following. 


Luke 24:46-53

King James Version

46 And said unto them, 

Thus it is written, 

and thus it behooved Christ to suffer, 

and to rise from the dead the third day:

47 And that repentance and remission of sins 

should be preached in his name among all nations, 

beginning at Jerusalem.

48 And ye are witnesses of these things.

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.

50 And he led them out as far as to Bethany, 

and he lifted up his hands, 

and blessed them.

51 And it came to pass, while he blessed them, 

he was parted from them, 

and carried up into heaven.

52 And they worshipped him, 

and returned to Jerusalem with great joy:

53 And were continually in the temple, 

praising and blessing God. 


In John's gospel, we witness the LORD having a last meal with His apostles by the Sea of Galilee.
