Narratives of the Passion, Resurrection and Ascension of Jesus of Nazareth : Book Three
For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received, that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures, and that He appeared to Cephas, then to the twelve. After that, he appeared to more than five hundred brothers at once, most of whom are still living, though some have fallen asleep. After that he appeared to James, then to all the apostles. Last of all, as to one untimely born, he appeared also to me. First Letter of Paul to the Corinthians The above passage is the earliest written evidence of the Resurrection of Christ.
For since death came through a human being, the resurrection of the dead has also come through a human being; for as all die in Adam, so all will be made alive in Christ. But each in his own order: Christ the first fruits, then at his coming those who belong to Christ. Paul offers further reassurance in his First Letter to Timothy that God wills everyone to be saved: 8. This is good and pleasing to God our savior, who wills everyone to be saved and to come to knowledge of the truth.

For there is one God. There is also one mediator between God and the human race, Christ Jesus, himself human, who gave himself as ransom for all. First Letter of St. Paul to Timothy Luke 24 contains four major scenes: 9 the empty tomb Luke , his presence "that very day" on the journey to Emmaus , the appearance to his disciples in Jerusalem , and the Ascension of Christ After the women and Peter had discovered the empty tomb, Christ appeared to two forlorn disciples on the road to Emmaus.
They did not recognize him until at dinner, "he was at table with them, took the bread, blessed and broke it, and gave it to them" Reminiscent of the Feeding of the Multitude and the Last Supper , the disciples recognized Christ, but at this point he suddenly vanished. As with us today, Christ was "made known to them in the breaking of the bread.
When he was at the table with them, he took bread, blessed and broke it, and gave it to them. Then their eyes were opened, and they recognized him; and he vanished from their sight. They were saying, "The Lord has risen indeed, and he has appeared to Simon! Gospel of Luke The narrative unity 10 of Luke's Gospel and his Acts of the Apostles is evident in Chapter One of Acts , where he continues to describe Christ after his Resurrection, that "he presented himself alive to them by many proofs after he had suffered, appearing to them for forty days and speaking about the Kingdom of God.
Following the Pentecost , Peter repeatedly affirmed his witness of the Resurrection of Our Lord Jesus Christ to the people of Jerusalem Acts , , , , :.

Resurrection and eternal life are central to the Gospel of John. In the Bread of Life Discourse, Jesus continues: "Those who eat my flesh and drink my blood have eternal life, and I will raise them up on the last day" John During the Last Supper, Jesus comforts his disciples:. If I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself, that where I am, there you may be also. John's Gospel is the only one containing two chapters on the risen Jesus.
In Chapter 21, Jesus reveals himself for the third time to his disciples, at the Sea of Galilee. John offers the descriptive picture of Jesus guiding the fishermen and then cooking breakfast! While Peter denied Jesus three times during the Lord's Passion, Peter confesses his love for Christ three times; Jesus then instructs him to "Feed my sheep" and "Follow me. The Lord's Day was recognized as early as the writing of the Book of Revelation Sunday, the first day of the week, was the time the disciples gathered together to "break bread" Acts Together the two works cover 60 years of the Life and Teachings of Jesus and the early Christian Church.
Luke was a physician and likely accompanied Paul on three of four missionary journeys as described in Acts the "we" passages from Acts to Acts It is possible that the date of composition of Luke's Gospel was before 70 AD. According to the introduction of Acts, the Gospel of Luke was written first. It is noted that the Acts of the Apostles ends abruptly with St. Paul under house arrest around 62 AD, with no mention of his trial or his subsequent activities; he does not mention the Roman persecution of Christians in the mid 60s, nor the martyrdom of Peter and Paul, the leading figures in Acts.
And there is no mention of the destruction of the Temple in 70 AD. The traditional promise of a Savior for all of humanity is fulfilled in Jesus Christ Luke , who offers salvation to Israel and all Gentiles. The theme of God's visitation and universal offer of salvation is first expressed through Zechariah, and Simeon when he saw the Child Jesus in the Temple, "a light for revelation to the Gentiles and glory for Israel" , in fulfillment of the prophecy of Isaiah and There is a narrative unity to Luke and Acts, for the mission of Jesus in Luke and his disciples in Acts is to carry out the "Purpose of God," a concept expressed in Luke and , as well as Acts , and Jesus tells the people of Capernaum that "I must preach the good news of the Kingdom of God to the other cities also, for I was sent for this purpose" Luke Luke's Gospel and the Acts of the Apostles are key to the description of the history and mission of the early Christian Church.
The first two chapters of Luke are known as his Infancy Narrative, for it describes in great detail the conception and childhood of Jesus, often through the eyes of his mother Mary. She then visits her hospitable cousin Elizabeth, who exclaims "Blessed are you among women and blessed is the fruit of your womb" Several of our Marian beliefs are based on the Infancy Narrative. Luke sees the life and mission of Jesus Christ as a visitation from God.
Those who are hospitable to our Lord, such as the sinful woman in the house of Simon the Pharisee , Zacchaeus the tax collector , and the thoughtful thief on the cross find assurance and salvation. The Gospels of Matthew, Mark, and Luke are considered the Synoptic Gospels, as the three often describe the life and teachings of Jesus in a similar pattern, although there are noticeable differences. For example, whereas Matthew f and Mark f record Jesus describing the two greatest Commandments, Luke combines them into one unified Commandment - "Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind and your neighbor as yourself.
To be sent by God means to execute a prophetic mission. Discipleship in Luke and the Acts of the Apostles often takes the form of a journey, such as the Journey to Jerusalem Luke Luke places great emphasis on prayer. Luke portrays Jesus as one who prays: Jesus prays during his baptism , before choosing twelve apostles , before the confession of Peter , before the Transfiguration , before the rendering of the Lord's Prayer , and before his arrest in the Garden All except the prayer in the Garden are unique to Luke alone. He considers prayer to be among the more important elements of discipleship.
Luke shows that prayer is the means by which God has guided his people throughout history. He is the only one to describe the Appearance of Jesus on the Road to Emmaus The climax of Luke's narrative Gospel occurs in Luke , where Luke gives a Messianic sense to Isaiah's suffering servant, as Jesus comments that the "Christ must suffer," and then commissions the Apostles to preach the Word to all nations, and promises the gift of the Holy Spirit.
