Discussion for Luke 24:39

  • It 's been said that the only thing in heaven that is man made is the scares in the body of Jesus. The resurrection of Jesus Christ is the clearest declaration that Jesus is LORD. Romans 1:4 states and declared to be the Son of God with power, according to the spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead. Here Jesus is standing in the presence of his disciples and others, not in spirit form but in human form where they could touch, him talk to him, watch him eat. This would transform their lives to where they would go to their deaths confessing the Lordship of Jesus. The Christian faith stands on the truth of the resurrection. I Cor:15:13, Now if there be no resurrection of the dead, then is not Christ risen, vs. 14 And if Christ be not risen, then is our preaching vain, and your faith is also vain. Without the resurrection there is no hope.
  • it means Jesus did not die in the cross i believe him he wont lie as the pastors are doing.
  • Christ is establishing the difference between Him and the Spirit which is to come after him. When He ascends into heaven, He will send a comforter, counsellor who will not be made of flesh and will be like that of the wind. The third person of the trinity. In verse 49, they are to wait in the city until he comes.
  • To me it is the way we as Christians who have accepted Christ in our life and believe in God, that Christ died for all mankind sins and rose again. If you believe in the one and only one true God, the invisible God. This is the way we will live in heaven with Jesus as our life. Thatís why he died for our sins. After God made man he told the first creation that what he made was good. It was the only way we could go to heaven and live with him. We are to follow the scripture that Almighty God gave to Paul to tell the whole world and the gentiles how we are to be. If you donít believe in God, you cannot be with him in glory. Amen. God bless all that read and study the Holy Bible. In his sonís name.
