The gospel of Luke opened with a prediction of coming joy. In this passage as the gospel closes we see this fulfilled. The followers of Jesus are overjoyed as what they thought was true, is flipped on its head. They had seen Jesus die and his lifeless body buried. But here he is, alive before their very eyes! And they are filled with life altering joy! In this message we unpack the significance of Jesus’ resurrection in the lives of Jesus’ follower, both then and today.
