29 March 2013 - John 20: 9

Friday, March 29

They did not yet discern the scripture that he must rise from the dead. — John 20:9

The concept of humans becoming spirit creatures and ruling in a heavenly Kingdom was foreign to Jesus’ disciples prior to Pentecost. (Acts 1:6) Once they were baptized with holy spirit and given the heavenly hope, they could grasp the meaning of what Jesus meant. Insight previously unattainable to Jesus’ disciples became available after the outpouring of holy spirit. By inspiration, the writers of the Christian Greek Scriptures set out—for our benefit—amazing facets of Jehovah’s purpose. (Eph. 3:8-11, 18) Today, both spirit-anointed ones and those of the “other sheep” feed together spiritually, assimilating these same truths. (John 10:16) Do you cherish the knowledge and understanding of God’s Word that holy spirit thus makes available to you? w11 12/15 4:7, 8
