Paul taught that the gospel of the Kingdom had been proclaimed to the “ends of the earth” in his lifetime (Romans 10:18). We have demonstrated that Paul used the same 5 Greek words to proclaim the fulfillment of the great commission, that Jesus used to command it. There is perfect harmony and perfect unity between Paul and Jesus, as they preached the same message. In fact, Paul was simply confirming that Jesus’ promise, made nearly 3 decades earlier, had been fulfilled (Mathew 24:14,34). Paul wanted the “world” (pun intended) to know that Jesus had kept his word.
