约翰福音-John 20章20 节
And when He had said this, He showed them His hands and His side. The disciples therefore rejoiced at seeing the Lord.
After the Lord showed them both His hands and His side, the disciples “rejoiced when they saw the Lord” (20:20). This was a fulfillment of the Lord’s promise in 16:19 and 22, where He said, “You therefore now indeed have sorrow; but I shall see you again and your heart will rejoice, and no one will take your joy away from you.” Now the disciples saw the newborn “child” (16:21), who was the resurrected Lord born in His resurrection as the Son of God (Acts 13:33). As we shall now see, this fulfillment by His coming back to His disciples brought them five blessings: His presence, His peace, His commission, the Holy Spirit, and the authority to represent Him (v. 23).
