When asked the question “Can you do greater things than Jesus”, most people say absolutely not. Although at first glance the question may seem ridiculous, according to Jesus, in John 14:12-14 we do have the potential to do greater works than him. Watch TT23 as we discuss if it is even possible to do greater works than Jesus.
12 Very truly, I tell you, the one who believes in me will also do the works that I do and, in fact, will do greater works than these, because I am going to the Father. 13 I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. 14 If in my name you ask me for anything, I will do it. 
- Jesus is giving his farewell speech to the disciples
- He us reassuring the disciples that they won’t be left alone

What did Jesus do?
18 “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me,
because he has anointed me
to bring good news to the poor.
He has sent me to proclaim release to the captives
and recovery of sight to the blind,
to let the oppressed go free,
19 to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.”

John 20:21 “Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, so I send you.” 22 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 retain the sins of any, they are retained.”
