15 He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.16 Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned. 17 And these signs will accompany those who believe: In my name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues; 18 they will pick up snakes with their hands; and when they drink deadly poison, it will not hurt them at all; they will place their hands on sick people, and they will get well.”– Mark 16:15 – 18
And so the apostles of Jesus Christ did, traveling far and wide to preach the Gospel.
The spread of Christianity is arguably the most important movement in history. Every frame of this interactive map, by westernconversatory.com, represents one year in the last 2000 years and charts “the missionary journeys of the apostles, the outposts of the early church, the hotbeds of persecution, the staging grounds of the Church’s major theological battles, and more.”
What will this map look like in another 50, 100, 1000 years? Each of us will determine a small part of that, that means we need to work.
