Matthew 28 Mark 16 Luke 24 John 20
It is worth noting the timing in which Jesus of Nazareth chooses to proclaim the forthcoming mission that He gives to his Apostles. In all four accounts, He gives them the Great Commission, after the Resurrection, and before His Ascension! In the accounts there are some agreements, and some differences. The wording is much different, and the points of emphasis are different. They all state however, to go and bring people into the Kingdom of God!
It is also important to note, that in “the most trustworthy family/s of ancient manuscripts,” the Great Commission contained in the Gospel of Mark is not present, that is Mark 16. 9-20. This Commission appears in a late third to early fourth century latin manuscript. It was confirmed as the “word of God,” during the Council of Trent in 1546, it was contained however, in the Latin Vulgate produced by Jerome in the late fourth century to early fifth century.
