The disciples then (B)rejoiced when they saw the Lord. 21 So Jesus said to them again, (C)Peace be to you; (D)just as the Father has sent Me, I also send you.” 22 And when He had said this, He breathed on them and *said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit. 23 (E)If you forgive the sins of any, their sins [a]have been forgiven them; if you retain the sins of any, they have been retained.”
