Scripture

Luke In Easter - Luke 24:13-27

For the final five podcasts 'Reading Luke in Lent' becomes 'Reading Luke in Easter' for Easter Week. Today we read Luke, Chapter 24: 13-27.

It is the evening of Easter day and two of the disciples who heard the testimony of the women are walking away from Jerusalem disheartened. They meet Jesus, in his first appearance as the risen Christ, but they do not recognise him. He will gradually be revealed to them in the Scriptures and in the Breaking of Bread. They try to explain what has happened but do not understand God’s plan. Jesus patiently explains that he was more than a prophet who was mighty in word and deed but that through his death and resurrection he brings the liberty he promised. In a reversal it is not just that the Scriptures point towards Jesus but that he is the key to understanding them.

'Reading Luke in Easter' concludes our series of simple podcasts offering daily readings from St Luke that cover the Gospel from start to finish - from Ash Wednesday to the first week of Easter.
