Lesson Review – Matthew 28:16-20 – The Great Commission


Here are some review notes from this week’s lesson in our preschool and K-4 classes. This week we studied Matthew 28:16-20 – The Great Commission.

This is lesson 42 of 78 in our study of the New Testament. This lesson corresponds with Story 120 in The Gospel Story Bible and with Week 42 of the Old Story New family devotional.

Gospel Truth for Today

The good news of Jesus’ death in our place for our sins was not to be limited to a small number of people. It is to be taken to the whole world!

The Lesson In A Sentence (or Two)

Before his ascension, Jesus met with his 11 disciples and instructed them to go and tell the whole world the good news of his death and resurrection. Not only that, Jesus promised to be with them (and us) even to the end of the age!

Questions For You Kids

When Jesus met his disciples on the mountain, what did he say?

Parents, the answer is the Bible Memory Verse your kids have been working on, Matthew 28:18-20.
He said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”

Where were the disciples supposed to go and tell people about Jesus?

To all the nations.

If we are a disciple (follower) of Jesus, do Jesus’ words apply to us too?


Do we have to go all around the world to tell people about Jesus?

No. There are probably people all around you that need to know about Jesus. However, some of us do need to go to far away lands to tell people about Jesus. Just like someone from our church and has gone to a place where people are not allowed to follow Jesus. She wants to tell them about Jesus!

Praying Together – Pray with your child, asking that God use both of you to fulfill Jesus’ great commission. Also, pray for Ms. Adrianne as she takes the gospel to a people who have never heard it.
