Receiving the Holy Spirit

In John 20:19-22, on the evening of the day of Jesus’ resurrection, we read that he breathes on his followers and gives them the Holy Spirit.

This event supports the idea that the Holy Spirit is specifically a gift given to Christians after Jesus’ return to heaven.

But we encounter the Holy Spirit in the Old Testament and earlier in the gospels as well.
