4 The Twelve

5 (Sidebar) At this point, it is worth mentioning that these 12 new preachers in the embryonic church do not come from the religious establishment—no Pharisees, no Sadducees, no scribes, no rabbis are part of the twelve.

6 Mark 6:6b-7 And he called unto him the twelve, and began to send them forth by two and two; And he called unto him the twelve, and began to send them forth by two and two;

7 The Apostles Return Mark 6:30 And the apostles gathered themselves together unto Jesus, and told him all things, both what they had done, and what they had taught. And the apostles gathered themselves together unto Jesus, and told him all things, both what they had done, and what they had taught.

8 Pause “Pastor, why are you making a big deal about showing us why we say that ‘these’ men are the Apostles?”

9 Acts 1:1-2 The former treatise have I made, O Theophilus, of all that Jesus began both to do and teach, Until the day in which he was taken up, after that he through the Holy Ghost had given commandments unto the apostles whom he had chosen:

10 Apostle’s Doctrine Acts 2:42 And they continued stedfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers. And they continued stedfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers.

11 Question Who has the authority to give Christians commandments?

12 2 Peter 3:2 That ye may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, That ye may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of us the apostles of the Lord and Savior: and of the commandment of us the apostles of the Lord and Savior:

13 In the OT: Prophets In the NT: Apostles Today All can speak for God as a prophet as long as they use the Bible. All followers of Jesus are sent forth (apostello) as ambassadors of Christ.

14 Biblical Fact After the Lord selected Matthias to replace Judas (Acts 1)—there is no biblical record of any other men being selected to replace the Apostles who died.

15 Mark 6:7b and gave them power [authority] over unclean spirits; and gave them power [authority] over unclean spirits; This is the same word as in Matthew 28:18 in the “Great Commission.”

16 Christ’s Delegation of His Power (v. 7b) and Message (v. 30)

17 Mark 6:8-9 And commanded them that they should take nothing for their journey, save a staff only; no scrip, no bread, no money in their purse: And commanded them that they should take nothing for their journey, save a staff only; no scrip, no bread, no money in their purse: But be shod with sandals; and not put on two coats. But be shod with sandals; and not put on two coats.

18 Christ’s Prohibitions These strict prohibitions force the Apostles to live in dependence upon God’s people for all their provisions.

19 Exodus 12:11 And thus shall ye eat it; with your loins girded, your shoes on your feet, and your staff in your hand; and ye shall eat it in haste: it is the LORD’S passover. And thus shall ye eat it; with your loins girded, your shoes on your feet, and your staff in your hand; and ye shall eat it in haste: it is the LORD’S passover. Exodus Redemption

20 Mark 6:10 And he said unto them, In what place soever ye enter into an house, there abide till ye depart from that place. And he said unto them, In what place soever ye enter into an house, there abide till ye depart from that place.

21 Commentary The purpose of this injunction was to prevent the disciples from moving if later they found better accommodations. They were to be content with their situation.

22 Two Lessons from v And commanded them that they should take nothing for their journey, save a staff only; no scrip, no bread, no money in their purse: 9 But be shod with sandals; and not put on two coats. 10 And he said unto them, In what place soever ye enter into an house, there abide till ye depart from that place.

23 Lesson #1 Being a follower of Christ will involve a sacrifice of material possessions. Being a follower of Christ will involve a sacrifice of material possessions. Followers of Christ live on less. Followers of Christ live on less. Ultimately, followers of Christ are called to live by faith. Ultimately, followers of Christ are called to live by faith.

24 Lesson #2 Christ’s plan is for those who benefit from the ministry of the Word to resource those who preach the gospel. Christ’s plan is for those who benefit from the ministry of the Word to resource those who preach the gospel.

25 The Apostle Paul Teaches Us The Same Thing In 1 Corinthians 9:13-14

26 Do ye not know that they which minister about holy things live of the things of the temple? and they which wait at the altar are partakers with the altar? Even so hath the Lord ordained that they which preach the gospel should live of the gospel.

27 1400 years of the state/federal level of govt. providing tax money to the local church and minister completely destroyed God’s plan. And now the typical “Christian” gives 2.7% of their income to the church.

28 Combined Household Income $50,000 x 2.7% x 2.7% $1350 $1350 Or $ a month.

29 Question If you fund your retirement before you resource the local ministry of the gospel are you really living by faith?

30 Question If you have 2 car payments but can’t “afford” to tithe are you really willing to sacrifice anything for God’s work?

31 Let’s Look Back At Mark 6:11

32 Mark 6:11a And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear you, when ye depart thence, shake off the dust under your feet for a testimony against them. And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear you, when ye depart thence, shake off the dust under your feet for a testimony against them. Testimony + Day of Judgment

33 Mark 6:11b Verily I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than for that city. Verily I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than for that city.

34 The ESV & NASB Do not retain Mark 6:11b; however, this exact text is also found in Matthew 10:15 & Luke 10:12 (in all translations).

35 Matthew 10:15 Verily I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than for that city. Verily I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than for that city. Luke 10:12 But I say unto you, that it shall be more tolerable in that day for Sodom, than for that city. But I say unto you, that it shall be more tolerable in that day for Sodom, than for that city.

36 Genesis 19:24 Then the LORD rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the LORD out of heaven;

37 Mark indicates that the testimony of the Apostles will be used against unbelievers at a futuristic day of judgment

38 Notice the Relativity In this Judgment! be more tolerable…than for

39 Don’t Accuse God of Not being Fair!

40 God’s “fairness” or “relativity” in the judgment will not be to the typical America unbeliever’s advantage.

41 Turn to Luke 12:47-48

42 And that servant, which knew his lord’s will, and prepared not himself, neither did according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes. And that servant, which knew his lord’s will, and prepared not himself, neither did according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes. But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more. Degrees of Punishment

43 Finally Vs. 12

44 Mark 6:12 And they went out, and preached that men should repent. And they went out, and preached that men should repent. Acts 17:30

45 Repent And the times of this ignorance God winked at; And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent: but now commandeth all men every where to repent:

46 Mark 6:30 And the apostles gathered themselves together unto Jesus, and told him all things, both what they had done, and what they had taught. And the apostles gathered themselves together unto Jesus, and told him all things, both what they had done, and what they had taught.

47 Exhortation Component Teaching Component You can see this combination throughout the book of Acts v. 12 v. 30
