Fully agree with everything you said.  So wonderfully put.    I may borrow it with permission for a white paper I am trying to write.

of course, anything I write is yours if you deem it fit.

Thanks

1 Cor 15:3-4.."For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:"

Acts 17:11.."These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so."

Lets dive into the actual discourse now. 
I am going to follow my initial break out.  The first was 10:1, it is the choosing and empowering opening.   It states as follows, from KJV

10:1   And when he had called unto him his twelve disciples, he gave them power against unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease.

Jesus calls his twelve disciples to him; this strikes me as an initial answer to a prayer for the Lord to send workers.  I am not sure if it was to send him workers or just generally.   If you go back to Matthew 9:38 it seems more that he is asking the Lord to send his disciples out into the harvest and the harvest being the masses of people coming to his teachings.   This also made me reflect on the fact he had twelve disciples and there were also twelve tribes of Israel, one disciple per tribe.  I am thinking the plan was each was picked for a specific tribe.   Very symbolic of the continuity of Godís plan for salvation.  The second part of this simple sentence is where he tells them what he is empowering them to do in Godís name and for God. 
This of being one of these twelve that had followed Jesus and you are now getting told what gifts will be theirs; to help them teach and spread the words. 

My personal thought on this is they just found out they have moved from mere disciples to his Apostles. Amazing how this one sentence how so much power to it.
