Luke 11:49  –  Note that apostles are sent, and Jesus is doing the sending.

John 20:21  –  Again, note that the apostles are the ones being sent, and Jesus is the one doing the sending.  As for Jesus Himself being an apostle, that is, a sent one, see Hebrews 3:1.  Remember also that the very word “apostle,” according to the NASB Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance, means “a messenger, one sent on a mission, an apostle” [emphasis added].
