Notes from the Journey with the Disciples – 335

  1. And with that he breathed on them and said, “Receive the Holy Spirit” (John 20:22).

What is this moment? Is it, as many have determined, the spiritual rebirth of the disciples? Is it comparable to Jesus’ baptism–something that must be done for now? The question as to how John 20 fits with Acts 2 is challenging, but all such queries overlook the most important part of the moment–As the Father has sent Me, I am sending you! This is what the moment is all about. It’s an equipping moment, a missional moment where Jesus now invites His disciples into the mission He has been given. From this moment forward, they are a part of His purpose.
