The Sending

Everything in John's Jesus-story has been moving towards a great climax. Betrayal leads to the cross. The cross leads to the tomb. But the tomb is found empty. Jesus is alive! And the resurrection means the story is not over. The resurrected Jesus continues His work on saving the world through the friends he calls to his side. Indwelt by Jesus' Spirit, the disciples become his hands, feet, and voice in the world. They are sent with the same authority God the Father had when he sent Jesus. And they are sent with a message of hope and warning.
