What translation is that?<quoted text>If the apostles are commission to make disciples of all nations using gifts of healing and of tongues, why would it be necessary for Jesus to tend to other sheep at that time? You would think that Jesus would have appeared during this time since it did absolutely no good because he had foretold an apostasy anyway.
The verse below does not distinguish who the sheep are, only that we are all the same.
For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.
It was necessary because they didn't have Google back then. For other people on different continents to hear the Gospel, Jesus told us He was going to tend to them.
