John 20:19-23 Upper Room

On the evening of that first Easter Sunday, the disciples are locked in the upper room. Jesus, the risen Lord, shows up physically. He commissions them to live out God’s post-Resurrection purpose for them and he breathes on them to bestow the gift of the Holy Spirit. In a scene that recalls Genesis 1-2, Jesus is dong an act of new-creation among them and calls them and us to live out of that new-creation.
