John 20:22

John 20:22 is very confusing to many. The English translation makes it seem like the disciples receive the Spirit before Pentecost. The sum of God’s word reveals that this Spirit was not given at this time. This is confirmed in the proper understanding of the Greek verb for “receive” in this verse.

Joh 20:22 NKJV And when He had said this, He breathed on them, and said to them, Receive the Holy Spirit.
