In this study we examine Jesus’s last words to His disciples in which He outlined the duties involved in making disciples and retaining those disciples. In our effort to examine these passages found in Matthew 28:18–20, Mark 16:15–18, and Luke 24:44–49, we focus on Matthew’s account and break that into sections. These passages have been dubbed the Great Commission. The various sections are examined and then put together. We look at the early disciples as a direct result of the apostles’ preaching and executing the chores as outlined in Matthew’s account of the Great Commission. In looking back at what the apostles and the early disciples did in Acts, we are able to understand why they did things the way they did and how both apostles and the early disciples submitted to God’s will and were used to accomplish God’s purposes. In the study, we conclude that without the Great Commission we cannot source our authority to make disciples or save souls. We further conclude that within the Great Commission or in executing the Great Commission we fail to make disciples or save souls if we pick and choose which part or parts of the charge to follow.
