Luke In Easter - Luke 24: 33-49

For the final five podcasts 'Reading Luke in Lent' becomes 'Reading Luke in Easter' for Easter Week. Today we read Luke, Chapter 24: 33-49.

Jesus instructed his disciples to say Peace to you whenever they entered a house. Here, Jesus, himself says it and echoes the beginning of the Gospel where his birth was announced with proclamations of peace. Though Jesus has appeared to Simon — the first and last disciple to be named in Luke’s Gospel — Jesus now shows the disciples his resurrected body in three different ways of sight, touch and taste.

He then opens their minds to understand the scriptures, to appreciate that through his passion, death and resurrection he is fulfilling the scriptures. He commissions the disciples to preach repentance to all nations from Jerusalem.

'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.
