His Word Quickly Spread

 

“Go forth and teach ye all nations”, he said.
“Go forth, go preach them the Gospel’s good news”.
Apostles went, and His words quickly spread.

For sins of this world, He suffered and bled,
Atonement for Adam’s apple taboos.
“Go forth and teach ye all nations”, he said.

For Satan’s works have been put in their stead.
Christ’s message of Love shows the path to choose.
Apostles went, and His words quickly spread.

That Jesus redeemed the living and dead,
While His actions upset all worldly views.
“Go forth and teach ye all nations”, he said.

A church was newborn, where believers lead,
Evangelists let the Bible infuse
Apostles went, and His words quickly spread.

“I AM the way, the truth, the light”, we read,
And for our sakes was He beaten and bruised.
“Go forth and teach ye all nations”, he said.
Apostles went, and His words quickly spread.

Author Notes:

I wrote this for the contest, but it seems to have disappeared. so I’m posting it anyway. This picture is if Jesus commisioning his Apostles to go spread the word, and it was by word of mouth, and through the written word. Here was the origin of the newborn christianity.

This poem is a Villanelle.
A Villanelle is a nineteen-line poetic form consisting of five tercets followed by a quatrain. There are two refrains (A1 and A2) and two repeating rhymes (a and b), with the first and third line of the first tercet repeated alternately until the last stanza, which includes both repeated lines. The Villanelle is an example of a fixed verse form. It is structured by two repeating rhymes and two refrains: the first line of the first stanza serves as the last line of the second and fourth stanzas, and the third line of the first stanza serves as the last line of the third and fifth stanzas.
The rhyme-and-refrain pattern of the villanelle can be schematized as:

(A1)b(A2) ab(A1) ab(A2) ab(A1) ab(A2) ab(A1)(A2)
where letters (“a” and “b”) indicate the two rhyme sounds, upper case indicates a refrain (“A”), and superscript numerals (1 and 2) indicate Refrain A1 and Refrain A2.

There is no specific meter required for a Villanelle.
