So in John 20:22 Jesus gives the apostles the POWER OF HOLY SPIRIT !!
Then in verse 23 , Whosoever SINS YE REMIT , they are REMITTED UNTO THEM , and you said that is not true ?
You say that only God can forgive SINS , yet the Pharisee's house in Luke 7:36-50 , also questioned Jesus's authority to forgive sin as you have done !!
Notice Acts 2:38 Then Peter SAID / PHEMI ( which is in the Greek Imperfect tense and Peter stopped repeating it bY Acts 28:28 ) REPENT / METAMOEO ( and is in the AORIST TENSE and is Peter's ministry a one time ministry ) an be BAPTIZED ( and here Peter is WATER BAPTIZING everyn one of you in THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST , for the FORGIVENESS of SINS ( here Peter is REMITTING SINS , and ye SHALL RECEIVE / LAMBANO which is in the Greek FUTURE TENSE and the FUTUREN TENSE is in MARK 16:15-18 which is called by SCHOLARS the FAR VIEW !!
Since Israel killed there MESSIAH Israel was set ASIDE as written in 2 Cor 3 :13-16 , and Isa 6 and Luke 13:6-9 and in Matt 3:10 !!
Acts is called the NEAR VIEW !!
Because of Israel rejection of Christ , He appointed another apostle called Paul with a new message , called the DISPENSATION of the Grace of God , Col 1:25 , 1 Cor 9:17 , Eph 3:2 !!
BAPTISIM is how they REMITTED SINS !!
