The Original Greek


You may not be aware that the original Greek meaning of "The Great Commission." If you study the words, "Go into all the world and preach the Gospel to every creature,"(Mark 16:15) a whole new world of interesting thoughts opens up. According to the text, the Greek word for "go" is very fascinating. It is poreuomai, meaning, "go." The word "all" also carries with it intriguing connotations. It is hapas, and actually means "all." And if that doesn't rivet you, look closely at the word "every." It is pas, and literally means "every." So when Jesus said, "Go into all the world and preach the Gospel to every creature," to be true and faithful to the original text, what He was actually saying was, "Go into all the world and preach the Gospel to every creature." We are so fortunate to have access to such knowledge. There goes another minute. Gone forever. Go share your faith while you still have time.
