Receiving the Holy Spirit

March 26, 2010 Leave a comment

In John 20:19-22, on the evening of the day of┬áJesus’ 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.
