The Great Commission
16 Then the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus had told them to go. 17 When they saw him, they worshiped him; but some doubted. 18 Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teachingh them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with youi always, to the very end of the age.”
The Rich and the Kingdom of God
19:16–29pp—Mk 10:17–30; Lk 18:18–30
16 Just then a man came up to Jesus and asked, “Teacher, what good thing must I do to get eternal lifed?”e
17 “Why do you ask me about what is good?” Jesus replied. “There is only One who is good. If you want to enter life, keep the commandments.”f
18 “Which ones?” he inquired.
Jesus replied, “ ‘You shall not murder, you shall not commit adultery,g you shall not steal, you shall not give false testimony, 19 honor your father and mother,’c h and ‘love your neighbor as yourself.’d”i
20 “All these I have kept,” the young man said. “What do I still lack?”
21 Jesus answered, “If you want to be perfect,j go, sell your possessions and give to the poor,k and you will have treasure in heaven.l Then come, follow me.”
22 When the young man heard this, he went away sad, because he had great wealth.
7 But only the high priest enteredf the inner room, and that only once a year, and never without blood,iwhich he offered for himself and for the sins the people had committed in ignorance.
2 Corinthians 5:10;
10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each of us may receive what is due uscfor the things done while in the body, whether good or bad.
