Rediscovering Christmas: Day 24: Luke Chapter 24

Chapter 24 is about the Resurrection.

7 Saying, The Son of man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again.

On the road to Emmaus Jesus walked with those who found the empty tomb and they were discussing what happened.  They didn't recognize Jesus at this point and He asked them what they were discussing.  They at first wondered if He was a visitor as they thought He didn't know what had happened over the past few days.  They then tried to explain these things to Him and they then recognized Him.  They then returned to Jerusalem and shared the news with others.

Jesus also appeared to the Disciples.  At first they thought they saw a ghost.  He explained to them that it wasn't a ghost as He had flesh and bones and encouraged them to touch Him.  They then gave Him broiled fish when He asked for something to eat.  He then explained to them what had been written.  He explained that repentance and forgiveness must be preached to all nations beginning at Jerusalem. 

He later lifted His hands and blessed them and then was taken into Heaven.  They they worshiped and praised Him.
