Initial Acquaintance


16 Now the eleven disciples went into Galilee, [in]to the mountain where Jesus commanded [directed] them to go. 17 After seeing him they worshiped him, but some doubted. 18 And after coming toward [them], Jesus spoke to them, saying: "It has been given to me all authority in heaven and [up]on [the] earth. 19 Go therefore, make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in[to] the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, 20 while teaching them to keep all the things, as many as I commanded to you (pl.)! And be mindful, I AM with you (pl.) all the days until the completion [consummation?] of the age.

18 And after approaching (the eleven disciples), Jesus spoke to them saying, "All authority was given to me in heaven and on the earth. 19 After going (ptc) therefore, make disciples! (the only imperative!) of all the ethnic groups, baptizing (ptc) them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching (ptc) them to keep strictly all which I commanded you, and see! I, I am with you all the days even to the end of the world.
