The Road to Emmaus and Beyond… week 5

Acts 1:1-11

v 1-2
In my former book, Theophilus, I wrote about all that Jesus began to do and to teach until the day he was taken up to heaven, after giving instruction through the Holy Spirit to the apostles he had chosen.

I wonder what did Jesus’ disciples of his day make of what happened that Passover Festival?
They had given three years of their life to following Jesus. They had heard him teach with authority. They had seen him perform miracles.
They saw him arrested, crucified buried and resurrected!
What was going on in their hearts and minds?

Thought for the week

We have the advantage of knowing the outcome because people like Luke took time to record the events of Jesus life and ministry.
People have risked life and limb to make the Gospel available to as many as possible. As a result we have the advantage of knowing the risen Christ as we walk with Him.
