21 Again Jesus said, “Peace be with you!i As the Father has sent me,j I am sending you.”k 22 And with that he breathed on them and said, “Receive the Holy Spirit.l 23 If you forgive anyone’s sins, their sins are forgiven; if you do not forgive them, they are not forgiven.”m
26 A week later his disciples were in the house again, and Thomas was with them. Though the doors were locked, Jesus came and stood among them and said, “Peaceq be with you!”r 27 Then he said to Thomas, “Put your finger here; see my hands. Reach out your hand and put it into my side. Stop doubting and believe.”s
