    Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever believes in me will also do the works that I do; and greater works than these will he do, because I am going to the Father.

    History provides the answer. Actually, the book of Acts tells of the spread of the gospel beyond the nation of Israel, to Jews in other countries, then to Gentiles in Asia Minor, then into Europe.

    History also tells us of the spread of the gospel to England, Spain and elsewhere.

    And modern history relates the expansion with the past 200 years into China, South America and beyond.

    And modern technology enables us to reach people all over the world.

    I think that may be what Jesus had in mind.

    cannot take that to mean as Charasmatics take it, for when did any of them raise the dead, walk on water, calm the storm as jesus could and did?
