Discussion for John 20

  • Kate
    I believe John hesitated to enter the Tomb alone out of awe of the supernatural nature of
    what he speculated he might discover upon entering and out of reverence. The gospel which he wrote also reveals a very humble nature. He possesses wisdom and self control.
    He understands authority and order. He was close disciple

    One of the questions mentions which apostle was not with the rest when Jesus first showed himself. The answer was Thomas; however, another name was a correct answer. Paul was not an apostle at that time.
  • Inno
    Though the other disciple outran Peter when he reached the tomb he was afraid. At times in our lives we are so good at the beginning of things but when we are about to reach our breakthrough we become afraid ,the disciple had to wait for Peter to go inside ,I'm saying to you today do not be afraid to start that business because no one have ever done it before be brave enough
  • Muqbool for verse 17
    When Mary recognised her Lord her first reaction was to hug him full of emotion. Jesus pleaded with her to be mindful of his wounds and internal injuries as he was still alive and in the same body.
  • Joyce Ballentine for verse 29
    THE WORD IS GOD HIMSELF GIVING TO US TO GUIDE US WITH OUR LIFE! IN ORDER TO BELIEVE U MUST RECEIVE THE COMFORTER WHICH IS THE HOLY SPIRIT THAT WILL LIVE INSIDE US! LORD THANK U FOR OPENING OUR EYES TO THE UNSEEN TO UNDERSTAND THE SEEN! LORD I PRAY THE EYES OF OTHERS WILL BE OPEN TO THE TRUTH AND TURN FROM THE LIES OF SATAN THAT TRAPS US IN SIN! LORD THANK U FOR SAVING MY SOUL FROM A BURNING HELL! AMEN! GLORY BE TO GOD!!!
  • Vicki Albanese for verse 7
    I agree with it being tradition for the king to fold up the napkin to show the servant he would be returning.
