The Gospels both provide foundations for mission and are themselves a result of the early church’s mission. This unit will examine the mission understanding of the four Gospel writers. It will explore how this formed and reflected the mission of the first century Church, and it will outline the challenges that confronted both the apostles and the church. Careful exegesis of significant passages will be a key component in exploring mission theology and the practice of the early church.
