Question 43 - How could the disciple teach without the Holy Spirit?

Luke 12:11-12 NKJV - "Now when they bring you to the synagogues and magistrates and authorities, do not worry about how or what you should answer, or what you should say. ”For the Holy Spirit will teach you in that very hour what you ought to say."
John 16:7 NKJV - "Nevertheless I tell you the truth. It is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you; but if I depart, I will send Him to you.
As long as Jesus was amidst them, John the Baptist His mother, His disciples, etc., did not do any miracles and teach about the kingdom of the Lord, because the Lord Christ Himself did these deeds amidst them. He Himself gave answer to the Pharisees and Jews who asked different kinds of questions. He Himself did miracles and gave answers to authorities.
                After the Lord Jesus ascended unto heaven, the Holy Spirit, who came upon the disciples through the Lord, did the deeds, which the Lord Christ did, and continued through His disciples.
                The Lord Christ informed His disciples in Luke 12:11-12 that the Holy Spirit will teach you in that very hour what you ought to say, i.e., what did you teach about the kingdom of God, what you ought to say before the authorities, how can you heal the sick, how can you write the parts of the Scripture, etc.

                Here, the Disciples of Christ were the disciples only, but not the masters. So, the Lord Christ trained them and gave instruction according to the situation.
