| WEEK 44 |
A QUICK LOOK BACK
Luke has much more to say! We have followed the footsteps of Jesus on his early ministry to proclaim the good news about the Kingdom of God. But now, Jesus moves toward the cross and the leaves the tomb empty behind him!
THE WEEK AHEAD
You’ve probably noticed by now that there are a lot of things in Luke that come from Mark’s gospel word for word. There are also some things that you find only in Luke! In particular, Luke shows us much more of Jesus’ resurrection than we have seen from the other accounts. Luke, the doctor, is fascinated by the flesh of a dead man coming back to life. But Jesus does not just come back to life. He is somehow more than He was before! He appears like a ghost, yet He can be touched like any other man. He even eats dinner with them. Something very new is happening here. The universe has been changed forever, though this is only the beginning. Read on., hearty traveler!
Keep reading and I’ll see you in the Bible!
