Matt 28:16-20 as "the Great Commission"
- Hello All,
Does anyone have an idea when in the course of the history of the Christian
church the last paragraph of Matthew's gospel began to be referred to as
"the Great Commission?" As late as two centuries ago, William Carey
(1761-1834), the reputed Father of the world missionary movement, seems not
to know the terminology. I would welcome any references to books and
articles as well as your informed personal opinions. Thanks.
