Reading along with us in Luke? Here’s today’s reading:

Luke 24 (ESV)

But on the first day of the week, at early dawn, they went to the tomb, taking the spices they had prepared. And they found the stone rolled away from the tomb, but when they went in they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. While they were perplexed about this, behold, two men stood by them in dazzling apparel. And as they were frightened and bowed their faces to the ground, the men said to them, “Why do you seek the living among the dead? He is not here, but has risen. Remember how he told you, while he was still in Galilee, that the Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men and be crucified and on the third day rise.”....Continue Reading

  1. 25And he said to them, “O foolish ones, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken! 26Was it not necessary that the Christ should suffer these things and enter into his glory?” 27And beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, he interpreted to them in all the Scriptures the things concerning himself.❤️

  2. Thus it is written, that the Christ should suffer and on the third day rise from the dead, 47and that repentance for the forgiveness of sins should be proclaimed in his name to all nations, beginning from Jerusalem. 48You are witnesses of these things. 49And behold, I am sending the promise of my Father upon you. But stay in the city until you are clothed with power from on high.”

    1. well there is that Jonah reference and the three days he was in the fish….it also has to be long enough for Jesus to be confirmed to be dead, this was not a resuscitation…..and yet short enough to reveal what has happened, the victory He has won….being there for the disciples in all the confusion the crucifixion caused…

  3. I was struck by verse 11 here. They didn’t believe the women because their words seemed like nonsense. And baring Jesus telling them that He would be raised, it is absolutely nonsense to our ability and understanding that someone could come back from the dead. Nonsense if it is not true, but wonder, praise and confirmation of Jesus’ claims if it is true. And there is no better way to show that it is true than for the resurrected Jesus to reveal Himself to people. And you gotta love the story here. Two of them walking along and this stranger appears. I wonder what it was like. To have Jesus share from the scriptures the master plan of salvation…did they not take notes??? And then what it was like to move from ignorance to knowledge, from not knowing this is Jesus to knowing it is. Awesome! And then He appears before the disciples. “Peace be with you.” After all the doubt and turmoil and confusion caused by the crucifixion, erased instantly with peace be with you. I am not defeated. I am not a liar or false teacher. I am Messiah. I am the Son of God! And this is all made evident by the reality of I am alive!

  4. Then He said to them, “Thus it is written, and thus it was necessary for the Christ to suffer and to rise from the dead the third day, 47 and that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in His name to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.
