The Biblical Basis for Missions

The Gospel Coalition Conference 2013


In this 45-minute session, Don Carson, world-renowned New Testament scholar and author, and Research Professor at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School and author of over fifty books, investigates the foundation of missions from the Bible. Though the entire narrative of Scripture gives reason for mission, Don dives into the words of 2 Corinthians 4.

Anytime we engage in the work of sharing the gospel—either by speaking with friends, family, or coworkers, or by living out our convictions—we risk hardship and discouragement. Yet the example that Jesus has given us is perseverance not because it’s our duty, but because we have also received the grace that we offer to others. Don’t grow discouraged in the face of difficulty. Instead show the grace of the gospel even more.
