October 20- John 20

Eugene Petersen has what I think is a unique take on vv. 22-23, “Then he took a deep breath and breathed into them. ‘Receive the Holy Spirit,’ he said. ‘If you forgive someone’s sins, they’re gone for good. If you don’t forgive sins, what are you going to do with them?’”  It is the last part of these verses that fascinates me- “If you don’t forgive sins, what are you going to do with them?”  I wonder what he meant.  May have to take a look into that.
