Luke 24: 36 to 53
With death itself overcome, Jesus shows His disciples there are no barriers to His risen presence. In case they still think they’re seeing an apparition, He eats fish in front of their wide eyes! As with the two on Emmaus Road, Jesus again shows how His death and resurrection fulfil the Scriptures. He commissions His disciples to bear witness ‘to all nations’ (v.47). The ascension and coming of the Spirit enable Christ’s presence to be known everywhere at once. A hope that will never die!
