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?

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]

Something strange is happening ... there is a great silence on earth today, a great silence and stillness. The whole earth keeps silence because the King is asleep. The earth trembled and is still because God has fallen asleep in the flesh and he has raised up all who have slept ever since the world began. God has died in the flesh and hell trembles with fear.

He has gone to search for our first...  [Continue Reading]

They Saw and Believed: Reflections for Easter Sunday

Posted by Dr. Scott Hahn on 04.22.11

Jesus is nowhere visible. Yet today’s Gospel tells us that Peter and John “saw and believed.”

What did they see? Burial shrouds lying on the floor of an empty tomb. Maybe that convinced them that He hadn’t been carted off by grave robbers, who usually stole the expensive burial linens and left the corpses behind.

But notice the repetition of the word “tomb” - seven times in nine verses. They saw...  [Continue Reading]
