Jesus is the One 7/29/2012The Mission of the Church
The end of Matthew's account is very selective. He only records one post-resurrection appearance of Christ to His disciples. However, the close of His Gospel forms a perfect bookend by confirming themes he introduced in the opening chapters. The account in masterfully written to affirm His main point: Jesus is the one, the Christ. Either worship Him as the Messianic Savior or face the wrath of the Messianic Judge.
