245 The Church: To the Ends of the Earth
How did Jesus respond when the disciples asked Him: “Lord, are you at this time going to restore the kingdom to Israel?” (Acts 1:6b) The disciples sought the reestablishment of their nation, the kingdom of Israel. However, Jesus had a larger and more profound plan. His plan was the establishment of His Church among the people of the whole world. In this course, we want to examine this plan in order to understand its purpose, content, power, Head, and realization.
