What Just Happened?
Scripture: Luke 24:13–24:35
Recap: 2 things just happened that no one expected:
- Jesus (the Messiah) was crucified
- Jesus (alone) was resurrected in the middle of the present age
Jesus is alive! But what does that even mean?
- The cross was always the plan (24.25)
- The cross was God’s victory, not defeat (24.26)
- God’s future has broken into our present (Acts 2)
Take Home Idea: In the cross and resurrection, God in Christ has done all that he had promised, and more than anyone expected
- Jesus is the first person to proclaim the gospel
- We believe and proclaim the same gospel first proclaimed by Jesus
