RESURRECTION - Gave his Spirit

Isaiah 44:3b |  And I will pour out my Spirit on your descendants, and my blessing on your children.

John 16:7 | But in fact, it is best for you that I go away, because if I don’t, the Advocate [The Holy Spirit] won’t come. If I do go away, then I will send him to you.

1. In the Old Testament and by Jesus to the disciples, it is foretold that who will come when Jesus ascends to Heaven? 

John 20:19-23 | That Sunday evening the disciples were meeting behind locked doors because they were afraid of the Jewish leaders. Suddenly, Jesus was standing there among them! “Peace be with you,” he said. As he spoke, he showed them the wounds in his hands and his side. They were filled with joy when they saw the Lord! Again he said, “Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, so I am sending you.” Then he breathed on them and said, “Receive the Holy Spirit. If you forgive anyone’s sins, they are forgiven. If you do not forgive them, they are not forgiven.”

2. Why was Jesus sent by God? 
3. What does Jesus send His followers to do? 
4. Who does Jesus give His followers as a Helper? 

Acts 2:38 | Peter replied, “Each of you must repent of your sins and turn to God, and be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. Then you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.

5. Who is given the Holy Spirit? When? 
6.  Do you have the Holy Spirit? How do you know? When/how have you experienced Him?
