Daily Bible Nugget #120, John 20:21

The Nugget:

John 20:21 Then said Jesus to them again, Peace be unto you: as my Father hath sent me, even so send I you.

My Comment:

It is imperative that the Gospel message be communicated to others. While Jesus spoke these words to His original group of disciples, the need holds true today. The task is not limited to professional clergy and missionaries. All of us who believe the Gospel should be missionaries. We each may not be missionaries in the same way, but God will use us in the way He sees fit.

For those who desire to DIG DEEPER into this subject:

(1) Consult the cross references given in Nelson’s Cross Reference Guide to the Bible on page 1209 for John 20:21.

(2) Consult the cross references given in The New Treasury of Scripture Knowledge on page 1227 or in Logos 5 Bible software for John 20:21.

(3) Lacking access to those two resources, consult the cross references for this passage as I have developed them as given below:

John 20:21. Peace. FS171I9B, Is +57:19. ver. +19. Jn *14:27. Ge 43:23. Nu 6:26. as my Father. Jn 14:28. Is 22:24. *48:16. hath sent. Jn +3:17, 34. 6:38. 17:18. Lk 4:43. He 3:1. so send. Note the distinction. The Father sent the Son alone, but the Son sends His disciples with an “escort” or guard, i.e. the Holy Spirit. This is to emphasize the fact that the Lord remains (by the Spirit) with those whom He sends (CB). Jn 13:20. *15:16. 17:18, 19, 22. 21:15-17. Is 61:1-3. Je 23:21. Ezk 2:3. 3:4. Ml 2:7. Mt 9:38. 10:5, 16, 40. 13:37. 23:34. 28:18-20. Mk **16:15-18. Lk 24:47-49. Ac +1:2, +*8. Ro 10:15. 1 C 1:1. 2 C 5:20. Ga 1:1. 2 T **2:2. He 3:1. 2 P 1:1. 1 J *4:6.
