Acts (Program #10) – The Propagation in Jerusalem, Judea, and Samaria through the Ministry of Peter’s Company (5-6)

After Pentecost, there is a new creation on the earth, and that is the most monumental fact of that day. God poured out of His Spirit to create a new entity on the earth, and this is called the Church.

On the day of Pentecost, the first gospel message was preached by a New Testament apostle. Peter, standing with the eleven, unveiled a clear and prevailing word that brought thousands to Christ on that monumental day. The content of Peter’s message remains powerful today, and presents an example of gospel preaching worth our full examination. We continue that examination today on the life study of the Bible.

Acts chapter 2 verses 1 and 2 says,  “And as the day of Pentecost was being fulfilled, they were all together in the same place.

The believers were filled with the Spirit, and the Church, as the body of Christ, was ushered in powerfully.

Luke (Program #65) – The Man-Savior’s Ascension (3 & 4)

The Gospel of Luke concludes with one of the mysterious and difficult to understand items in the entire New Testament and that’s the ascension of the Lord Jesus Christ to the heavenlies, some forty days after His resurrection. Luke 20:4 says “while He blessed them He parted from them and was carried up into heaven and they worship Him and returned to Jerusalem with great joy and were continually in the temple blessing God.”  One of the reasons that seems to be mysterious and difficult is that it appears to be very removed even remote from us. Yet when we see His ascension properly in view of the entire New Testament revelation we realized that it has tremendous implications for us.

Luke (Program #64) – The Man-Savior’s Ascension (1 & 2)

The final Chapter of the Gospel of Luke is marvelous. It begins with the Lord Jesus revealing Himself to His dear ones, that He had resurrected from the dead. Then we see Him in resurrection appearing and disappearing repeatedly in order to train them to experience His invisible presence and finally He brings us to this concluding words that He uttered to His disciples:

Chapter 24:46, “And He said to them thus it is written that the Christ would suffered and raised up from the dead on the third day, and that repentance for forgiveness of sins would be proclaim in His name to all the nations beginning from Jerusalem. And behold I send forth the promise of my Father upon you. But as for you stay in the city until you put on power from on high.”

24:51 “And while He blessed them, He parted from them and was carried up into heavens.” Here was His promise that He would cloth them with power from on high. But not before His visible ascension to the third heavens.  What happen in that ascension? And why is it important for us to know about it?

Luke (Program #50) – The Resurrection and Ascension of the Man-Savior (2)

Following the Lord’ Jesus resurrection, He first appeared to two disciples as they were traveling on the road to a village called Emmaus. After revealing Himself to these ones and then disappearing, they hurry back to Jerusalem to make the account to Peter and the other disciples. And as they were telling this incredible story, the resurrected Lord miraculously appears again. Not as a ghost or as a Spirit, but with a physical body that can be handled and touched. But then in the midst of their astonishment, just as He had done to the two men traveling to Emmaus, He not only open their eyes to recognize that it was truly Him. He also open their eyes and minds to understand the scriptures, it was this unveiling that would stay with them and enable them to stay in His invisible presents long after His physical presence were no longer with them. How we need the same opening and unveiling even today.

Luke (Program #43) – The Man-Savior’s Presentation of Himself to Death for Redemption (2 & 3)

The ministry of the Lord Jesus during His human life took place primarily in Galilee, a region far to the North of  Jerusalem and away from the center of religious activity. But as the lamb of God, He has to be offered to God at the prescribed place, Mount Moriah, where Abraham offered Issac. It was there that He had to be delivered according to the counsel of the Trinity. In order to establish His absolute qualification to be the unique offering to God for the sins of mankind, He first had to submit Himself to the examination and question of religious and political leaders of the day.
