    Irene: Yes, sorry, I translated it in my head from the Finnish bible.
  • Irene123
    Anna - I guess your Bible says - "locked"; the KJV just says shut. That's okay, they very well could have been locked - for fear of the unbelieving Jews.

    Irene: John 20:26. Jesus appears to His disciples.
  • Irene123
    Anna - "..... behind locked doors". What locked doors; where were these doors at ..... ?

    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.
  • Peter A. Okebukola
    The message of love of God and love for our neighbour keeps ringing in Jesus' teachings. "Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself." Salvation and love provide the master key to take us to heaven and everlasting life.
