People's Bible Notes for John 20:21


Joh 20:21 Peace [be] unto you: as [my] Father hath sent me, even so send I you. This is the Great Commission, more fully developed in Galilee a little later (Mt 28:16-20), and finally completed on Mt. Olivet (Ac 1:4-9), just before the Lord ascended. The Lord had trained the apostles for three years in order to fit them for this important work.
