from "A.D.The Bible Continues"
The actual Great Commission - Christ's final earthly message - is brief, concise, and powerful:
“All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Matthew 28:18-20
The television series "A.D.The Bible Continues," missed several key elements, but perhaps the greatest is this:
Jesus, the Ultimate Authority, King of Kings and Lord of Lords is with His followers always ... that's me ... and it's you, if you know Jesus.
I can live without the scripted words of actors, but not without the Words and presence of Christ. How about you?
Despite my disappointment in the shortened version of the Great Commission, I have enjoyed a number of things about "A.D. The Bible Continues." If you have been watching it, I would love to hear your observations. Please leave them in a comment.
