Description

Bishop Hobby, along with others, will be facilitating a conversation around questions raised by the Great Commission (Matthew 28:16-20), such as:

  • What implications can we draw from the fact that the Great Commission is given to a community; and from the fact that communities (“the nations”) are in view?
  • What exactly does it mean to “disciple the nations”? How does one do it? What are the key dynamics of the process?
  • What do the three participles (going, baptizing, teaching) tell us about Jesus’ vision?
  • How do the descriptive phrases that describe baptism (“into the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit”) and teaching (“to obey all that I have commanded”) shape our understanding and practice?
  • Why does Jesus set His commission in the context of His authority (v.18 ) and His presence (v. 20)? What does that mean for us?

Our conversation will include trying both to describe clearly what we mean by discipleship and to establish a way of assessing the various tools and curricula already available.
