His Mercy Endures: Reflections for Divine Mercy Sunday

Posted by Dr. Scott Hahn on 04.29.11

We are children of Jesus’ Resurrection from the dead. Through this wondrous sign of His great mercy, the Father of Jesus has given us new birth, as we hear in today’s Epistle.

Today’s First Reading sketches the “family life” of our first ancestors in the household of God (see 1 Peter 4:17). We see them doing what we still do - devoting themselves to the Apostles’ teaching, meeting daily to pray and...  [Continue Reading]

Posted by Dr. Michael Barber on 04.29.11

Be sure to read Part 1 and Part 2.

Understanding the Book of Acts: Part 2—Acts of Jesus & Acts of the Apostles

Posted by Dr. Michael Barber on 04.27.11

In the first post of this series I highlighted the unity of Luke-Acts. I emphasized that the two books seem to show us that the ministry of Jesus is continued through his Church. Now I want to begin to move closely through the narrative, highlighting the way this theological truth is underscored.

Indeed, for the reader who knows the Gospel of Luke, Acts is a sort of déjà vu experience. The narrative...  [Continue Reading]

Jesus Didn't Just "Die for Our Salvation": Why He Rose from the Dead

Posted by Dr. Michael Barber on 04.26.11

Christ is risen, Alleluia!

But why did he rise from the dead?

Here I want to ask the question and touch on an aspect of the resurrection that is often overlooked, namely, how it relates to our salvation.

Most people know that Jesus died for their sins. But, as we shall see, according to the New Testament Jesus also rose for our salvation. This aspect of the biblical message is often neglected. The...  [Continue Reading]
