All Authority: How the Authority of Jesus Upholds the Great Commission

On the basis of his authority, Jesus commissioned his disciples, and believers after them, to go and make disciples among every people group on earth. This would be an impossible commission if it were not for the promise that he is with them forever with the authority that is like no other. The doctrine of the supreme authority of Christ not only upholds the work of the Great Commission, it is the central message that the church should proclaim. Shaw forcibly proves by Scripture that Jesus has supreme authority over all.
