    John 16:7–15 ESV
    7 Nevertheless, I tell you the truth: it is to your advantage that I go away, for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you. But if I go, I will send him to you. 8 And when he comes, he will convict the world concerning sin and righteousness and judgment: 9 concerning sin, because they do not believe in me; 10 concerning righteousness, because I go to the Father, and you will see me no longer; 11 concerning judgment, because the ruler of this world is judged. 12 “I still have many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now. 13 When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth, for he will not speak on his own authority, but whatever he hears he will speak, and he will declare to you the things that are to come. 14 He will glorify me, for he will take what is mine and declare it to you. 15 All that the Father has is mine; therefore I said that he will take what is mine and declare it to you.
    John 20:1–10 ESV
    1 Now on the first day of the week Mary Magdalene came to the tomb early, while it was still dark, and saw that the stone had been taken away from the tomb. 2 So she ran and went to Simon Peter and the other disciple, the one whom Jesus loved, and said to them, “They have taken the Lord out of the tomb, and we do not know where they have laid him.” 3 So Peter went out with the other disciple, and they were going toward the tomb. 4 Both of them were running together, but the other disciple outran Peter and reached the tomb first. 5 And stooping to look in, he saw the linen cloths lying there, but he did not go in. 6 Then Simon Peter came, following him, and went into the tomb. He saw the linen cloths lying there, 7 and the face cloth, which had been on Jesus’ head, not lying with the linen cloths but folded up in a place by itself. 8 Then the other disciple, who had reached the tomb first, also went in, and he saw and believed; 9 for as yet they did not understand the Scripture, that he must rise from the dead. 10 Then the disciples went back to their homes.
    John 20:11–18 ESV
    11 But Mary stood weeping outside the tomb, and as she wept she stooped to look into the tomb. 12 And she saw two angels in white, sitting where the body of Jesus had lain, one at the head and one at the feet. 13 They said to her, “Woman, why are you weeping?” She said to them, “They have taken away my Lord, and I do not know where they have laid him.” 14 Having said this, she turned around and saw Jesus standing, but she did not know that it was Jesus. 15 Jesus said to her, “Woman, why are you weeping? Whom are you seeking?” Supposing him to be the gardener, she said to him, “Sir, if you have carried him away, tell me where you have laid him, and I will take him away.” 16 Jesus said to her, “Mary.” She turned and said to him in Aramaic, “Rabboni!” (which means Teacher). 17 Jesus said to her, “Do not cling to me, for I have not yet ascended to the Father; but go to my brothers and say to them, ‘I am ascending to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God.’ ” 18 Mary Magdalene went and announced to the disciples, “I have seen the Lord”—and that he had said these things to her.
    John 20:19–23 ESV
    19 On the evening of that day, the first day of the week, the doors being locked where the disciples were for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood among them and said to them, “Peace be with you.” 20 When he had said this, he showed them his hands and his side. Then the disciples were glad when they saw the Lord. 21 Jesus said to them again, “Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, even so I am sending you.” 22 And when he had said this, he breathed on them and said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit. 23 If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven them; if you withhold forgiveness from any, it is withheld.”

    Sermon

    His Death

    Jew - Rejected by God
    Gentile - A god would not act in such a way
    1 Corinthians 1:23 ESV
    23 but we preach Christ crucified, a stumbling block to Jews and folly to Gentiles,
    Gospel of John highlights seven times that Jesus claimed to be God but in his actions and teaching.
    Jesus Said:
    John 8:24 ESV
    24 I told you that you would die in your sins, for unless you believe that I am he you will die in your sins.”

    He is Risen

    John 20:1 ESV

    To move a body was a capital offence
    John 20:3–5 ESV
    3 So Peter went out with the other disciple, and they were going toward the tomb. 4 Both of them were running together, but the other disciple outran Peter and reached the tomb first. 5 And stooping to look in, he saw the linen cloths lying there, but he did not go in.

    John 20:6–7 ESV
    6 Then Simon Peter came, following him, and went into the tomb. He saw the linen cloths lying there, 7 and the face cloth, which had been on Jesus’ head, not lying with the linen cloths but folded up in a place by itself.
    Lazarus left the tomb, wrapped in linen
    Jesus left the linen behind
    Some believe the cloths remained in place but colapsed due to no longer containing a body
    John 20:8–9 ESV
    8 Then the other disciple, who had reached the tomb first, also went in, and he saw and believed; 9 for as yet they did not understand the Scripture, that he must rise from the dead.

    John and other discliples accounts leave no doubt that they speak of bodily resurrection
    Confirms that they did not yet understand the scriptures fortelling
    John 20:10–13 ESV
    10 Then the disciples went back to their homes. 11 But Mary stood weeping outside the tomb, and as she wept she stooped to look into the tomb. 12 And she saw two angels in white, sitting where the body of Jesus had lain, one at the head and one at the feet. 13 They said to her, “Woman, why are you weeping?” She said to them, “They have taken away my Lord, and I do not know where they have laid him.”

Whom are you seeking?” Supposing him to be the gardener, she said to him, “Sir, if you have carried him away, tell me where you have laid him, and I will take him away.”
    Mary sees Jesus but does not recognise Jesus, through her distress
    John 20:16–17 ESV
    16 Jesus said to her, “Mary.” She turned and said to him in Aramaic, “Rabboni!” (which means Teacher). 17 Jesus said to her, “Do not cling to me, for I have not yet ascended to the Father; but go to my brothers and say to them, ‘I am ascending to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God.’ ”
    Jesus says to Mary, that she needs to stop grieving his loss and that there is important work to do as he is preparing to return to His Father
    Jesus confirms that we are joint heirs and children of God
    John 20:18 ESV

    John 20:19–20 ESV
    19 On the evening of that day, the first day of the week, the doors being locked where the disciples were for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood among them and said to them, “Peace be with you.” 20 When he had said this, he showed them his hands and his side. Then the disciples were glad when they saw the Lord.
    10 of the 12 disciples (less Thomas & Judas Iscariot)
    Peter & others felt shamed of how they had denied and abandoned Jesus
    They were still afraid
    Jesus fulfilled what he predicted
    now the Disciples were joyous as Jesus had predicted
    conversion experience of the disciples
    John 20:21 ESV
    21 Jesus said to them again, “Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, even so I am sending you.”
    Jesus commissions the (10) disciples
    John 20:22 ESV
    22 And when he had said this, he breathed on them and said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit.
    Breathed into them (Jesus/God breathed into Man at Creation)
    John 20:23 ESV
    23 If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven them; if you withhold forgiveness from any, it is withheld.”
    Forgiveness is through faith
    Jesus speaks of their role in preaching the Gospel
    There is responsibility on the
    one to declare
    the hearer to believe or to reject
    He commissions them with the right to declare the forgiveness of sins to those who believe

    Conclusion

    Work of the Spirit
    he will convict the world concerning sin and righteousness and judgment:
    concerning sin, because they do not believe in me
    concerning righteousness, because I go to the Father, and you will see me no longer;
    concerning judgment, because the ruler of this world is judged
    Sign of Jonah
    Jesus said
    Matthew 12:39 ESV
    39 But he answered them, “An evil and adulterous generation seeks for a sign, but no sign will be given to it except the sign of the prophet Jonah.
