Jesus said to them again, “Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, even so I am sending you.” (John 20:21 ESV)
According to the Gospel of John, Jesus spoke these words to his disciples after his resurrection.
Here are a few questions: 1) Was Jesus only sending the disciples that heard this statement? 2) Was Jesus sending all disciples? 3) Was Jesus sending the disciples that heard this statement and a subset of all other disciples? 4) In what way(s) are Jesus’ disciples sent the way he was sent?
