Jesus Sends Out The Twelve (Luke 9:1-6)

Phillip Stuckey, September 15, 2019
Part of the Expositions on the Gospel of Luke series, preached at a Sunday Evening service

Earlier, Luke recorded the call of the Twelve to be Jesus’ apostles (Luke 6:13-16). Now Luke turns to their being commissioned and being sent out on their first mission to proclaim the coming kingdom (cp. Matt. 10:1-14; Mark 6:6-13). As we read, consider how Jesus did not seek to hoard power and authority for Himself, but instead delegated and equipped those who followed Him to carry out the Father’s will (Luke 5:10; cp. 10:16, 19-20; 11:19). What did Luke hope Theophilus would learn from his account of Jesus sending out the Twelve?

Luke 9:1–6 (Listen)

9:1 And he called the twelve together and gave them power and authority over all demons and to cure diseases, and he sent them out to proclaim the kingdom of God and to heal. And he said to them, “Take nothing for your journey, no staff, nor bag, nor bread, nor money; and do not have two tunics. And whatever house you enter, stay there, and from there depart. And wherever they do not receive you, when you leave that town shake off the dust from your feet as a testimony against them.” And they departed and went through the villages, preaching the gospel and healing everywhere.
