    Irene: Yes, sorry, I translated it in my head from the Finnish bible.

    Irene: John 20:26. Jesus appears to His disciples.

    Anna - "..... behind locked doors". What locked doors; where were these doors at ..... ?
  • Anna
    The keys to the kingdom of heaven were given to God's children to loose and bind sins. When someone is on the wayside burdened with a load of sins, the conscience feeling hells burning flames, a child of God stops to heal with the words of the forgiveness of sins. That power has been given to the congregation which Jesus established behind locked doors.
