The Witnesses

April 16 2023
Book: Luke

Bible Passage: Luke 24: 36-53

The Apostle’s Creed contains the assertion: “I believe in the resurrection of the body.” This is a reminder that Easter is more than an annual celebration, but core to the faith of those who follow Jesus.  In this text Jesus gathers with his fearful followers, addresses their doubts and then reminds them of their vocation: “You are witnesses”. Which means that we are witnesses to Jesus’ death and resurrection and, in the midst of our doubt, are to live and tell the good news that “He is not here.  He is risen as he said.”
