  • Michael.Matiyase.Magagula on John 16:7
    The text can best be understood in the light of the incident recorded in Numbers:11:17&25.It is Infact a type of what Jesus would later demonstrate during the feast of weeks/Pentecost.In Numbers God instructs Moses to bring to before the tabernacle 70 leaders of Israel.Only when the would stand before the tabernacle would God take of the Spirit that was with Moses and impart it to the 70 elders.This is exactly what would happen when Christ would reach heaven.God would take of the Spirit that imbued Christ at baptism,and dispense with it as promised.This God did at pentecost and later the same Spirit in Peter,as he began to speak at Cornellius' villa in Caesarea,what's imparted by (God) to all in the same way that it happened during Pentecost(Acts:10:44/11:15)
