Luke 23:50-24:12 – Resurrection
This Sunday we will celebrate the victorious resurrection of Jesus Christ, conquering sin and death. As we do so, we will reflect on Luke 24:1-12. Mary Madgalene, Joanna, and Mary the mother of James, along with other women, came to Jesus’ tomb on Sunday morning at dawn and found it empty. Even the Apostles didn’t believe them. But Peter, even in the wake of his denial and failure, ran to the tomb to see it for himself. We will see the historical reality of Jesus’ resurrection, as well as its importance for us.
