Discipling the Nations

  1. Introduction:

    The special population discussed in this lesson is by far the largest group of all and probably the most challenging group for Jews. Jews considered themselves God’s special chosen people and did not expect God to save non-Jews or Gentiles or as this lesson called them “the Nations”. In the face of this tremendous bias the Bible and Jesus make it clear that the God of Israel was the universal Lord over all. The creator of the world cared for all of His children and wanted His followers to reach out and disciple ALL nations. No ethnic or social group is outside of His love & concern.

  2. Key Words: (Check your Bible Dictionary)

    1. Nation
    2. People
    3. Gentile
  3. Core Texts:

    Isa. 56:6-8
    Matt. 28:18-20
    John 12: 20-32
    Acts 1:7,8
    Rev. 14:6

  4. Personal Application:

    1. What should be our mission strategy? Why did Jesus first send missionaries to Jews rather than Gentiles? What should this tell us about our strategy?
    2. Should our mission be adapted if we go to people with no Christian background? Why & how?
    3. The Jews clearly had prejudices in relation to Gentiles. Do you see in our culture prejudice against some groups? Which groups? What should we do about this? How will prejudice affect our discipleship outreach?
