Disciple the nations

E. J. Hutchinson analyzes the grammar of Matthew 28:19:

“The nations” are in the accusative: they themselves, and not some group of people from them, are the direct object of the imperative “disciple” or “teach.” Whatever the phrase means, therefore, it is “the nations” themselves, considered as such, that are to be acted upon.
