Matthew 28:18-20 And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”

A Felt Connection
Can you imagine working your normal nine to five and some guy comes along and says hey look put all those things away, yeah just leave them. Come with me and I will make you famous. The men look around and say "is he talking to me"? I am a nobody, how can he be talking to me? But the men went and hung around him for months. Listening to every thing he said. Questioning his meaning of things. But they all felt a connection to this famous revolutionary. And learned from him through their own faults and failures that God's word was the ultimate thing that made men righteous but that through Jesus these who thought they were righteous were really not and that Jesus was sent to die for our sins. These deeply connected men and women spread the Gospel/Good News through out the lands of old. And like stories of old they were passed down and left for interpretation. But through the years the meaning rings loud and clear. God has the last word and we as humans should try our best to live up to those standards.
