Jesus Pays a Visit

Luke 24:36-53

I mentioned at the beginning of Luke’s description of the Last Supper that he approaches these events in a way that leaves out many details that are recorded in the other gospels, but that in doing so he makes certain themes very clear without having to sift through a lot of detail. Never is this approach clearer than in this last passage of the book; it reads almost like a highlight reel of the risen Christ’s interactions with the disciples. Yet in doing so, Luke has brought the most important theological elements together so that his readers can “get” the gist of what is happening, and how it ties in with the Acts narrative.
