“The Twelve”—Bound together by God’s choice

“Together”—Focus

—Argumentation:

Amos 3:3—“Do two men walk together unless they have made an appointment?”

Mat. 18:19—“Again I say to you, that if two of you agree on earth about anything that they may ask, it shall be done for them by My Father who is in heaven.”

SUPERNATURAL POWER(:1b)

—Explanation:(:1b) Outside

“And He called the twelve together, & gave them power & authority over all the demons, & to heal diseases.”

“He...gave them power & authority”—

—Argumentation:

1Cor. 4:18-20—“Now some have become arrogant, as though I were not coming to you. But I will come to you soon, if the Lord wills, & I shall find out, not the words of those who are arrogant, but their power. For the kingdom of God does not consist in words, but in power.”

Col. 1:28-29—“And we proclaim Him, admonishing every man & teaching every man with all wisdom, that we may present every man complete in Christ. And for this purpose also I labor, striving according to His power, which mightily works within me.”

Gal. 2:20—““I have been crucified with Christ; & it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; & the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me, & delivered Himself up for me.”

1Cor. 6:19—“Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, & that you are not your own?”

3—Successful evangelistic events are guaranteed by

VERBAL PROCLAMATION(:2a)

—Explanation:(:2b)

“And He sent them out to proclaim the kingdom of God, & to perform healing.”

“The kingdom of God”—

Jn. 3:3—“Jesus answered & said to him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”

Jn. 3:5—“Jesus answered, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water & the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.”

Mat. 7:21—“Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven; but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven.”

No pretense!

—Argumentation:

Rom. 10:12-15—“For there is no distinction between Jew & Greek; for the same Lord is Lord of all, abounding in riches for all who call upon Him; for “WHOEVER WILL CALL UPON THE NAME OF THE LORD WILL BE SAVED.” How then shall they call upon Him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher? And how shall they preach unless they are sent? Just as it is written, “HOW BEAUTIFUL ARE THE FEET OF THOSE WHO BRING GLAD TIDINGS OF GOOD THINGS!”

Physical healing pictures emotional & spiritual healing

—Argumentation:

Isa. 53:5—“But He was pierced through for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; The chastening for our well-being fell upon Him, And by His scourging we are healed.”—double & grafted meaning.
