Matthew 22:14

Palm Sunday

"You are witnesses of these things."
(Luke 24:48)

Third Sunday of Easter

Jesus Appears to His Disciples

Luke 24:36 While they were talking about this, Jesus himself stood among them and said to them, "Peace be with you."
Luke 24:37 They were startled and terrified, and thought that they were seeing a ghost.
Luke 24:38 He said to them, "Why are you frightened, and why do doubts arise in your hearts?
Luke 24:39 Look at my hands and my feet; see that it is I myself. Touch me and see; for a ghost does not have flesh and bones as you see that I have."
Luke 24:40 And when he had said this, he showed them his hands and his feet.
Luke 24:41 While in their joy they were disbelieving and still wondering, he said to them, "Have you anything here to eat?"
Luke 24:42 They gave him a piece of broiled fish,
Luke 24:43 and he took it and ate in their presence.

The Scriptures Opened

Luke 24:44 Then he said to them, "These are my words that I spoke to you while I was still with you--that everything written about me in the law of Moses, the prophets, and the psalms must be fulfilled."
Luke 24:45 Then he opened their minds to understand the scriptures,
Luke 24:46 and he said to them, "Thus it is written, that the Messiah is to suffer and to rise from the dead on the third day,
Luke 24:47 and that repentance and forgiveness of sins is to be proclaimed in his name to all nations, beginning from Jerusalem.
Luke 24:48 You are witnesses of these things.

[Luke 24:46] (vv. 46-53) These verses indicate the fact that the Book of Acts is Luke's second volume and begins where his Gospel concludes. Compare the many points of contact found in Luke 24:46-53 and Acts 1:1-14: (1) suffering, (2) resurrection, (3) witnesses, (4) the Promise of the Father, (5) tarrying in Jerusalem, (6) power from on high, (7) ascension, (8) return to Jerusalem, and (9) meeting in the temple.
