JESUS GIVES AUTHORITY

 
Read Matthew 10
 
  • Matthew 10:2-30 (NKJV) 2 Now the names of the twelve apostles are these: first, Simon, who is called Peter, and Andrew his brother; James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother; 3  Philip and Bartholomew; Thomas and Matthew the tax collector; James the son of Alphaeus, and Lebbaeus, whose surname was Thaddaeus; 4  Simon the Cananite, and Judas Iscariot, who also betrayed Him. 5  These twelve Jesus sent out and commanded them, saying: “Do not go into the way of the Gentiles, and do not enter a city of the Samaritans. 6  But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. 7  And as you go, preach, saying, ‘The kingdom of heaven is at hand.’ 8  Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out demons. Freely you have received, freely give.
