The land of Israel was not called Palestine when Christ's disciples first spread the Gospel. Jesus had given instruction to the disciples after His Resurrection, just before His Ascension: "All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world." Matthew 28:18-20.

He also instructed the disciples to wait in Jerusalem until they received the Holy Spirit's power: "And, being assembled together with them, commanded them that they should not depart from Jerusalem, but wait for the promise of the Father, which, saith he, ye have heard of me. For John truly baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost not many days hence." Acts1:4,5. After they would experience this, Christ told them: "But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth." v.8.

The disciples were to effectually spread the Gospel throughout the whole world. While the early church did spread the truth of Christianity to areas known today as Israel, then Lebanon and Asia Minor (Turkey), Greece and Rome, other indications show that they went to Babylon, Ethiopia, possibly India and Spain. Yet the whole world was not reach in the 1st Century.

But Christ prayed his High Priestly prayer for others who would spread the Gospel, ultimately throughout the whole world: "Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word..." John 17:20.

Paul made clear to Timothy the progression of spreading the truth of the Gospel: " Thou therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus. And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also." 2 Timothy 2:1,2. There are four generations of Gospel witness it that pattern.

In the 19th and 20th Centuries, a great movement from England and the United States sent missionaries to many regions in the world, taking to heart the instructions of Christ and the Scriptures, to spread the Gospel to all the world. This effort continues on today in the 21st Century.
