Bible Notes

Luke 24:6-8 (02.04.24)

Luke 24:6-8 (NIVUK)
6 …Remember how he told you, while he was still with you in Galilee: 7 “The Son of Man must be delivered over to the hands of sinners, be crucified and on the third day be raised again.”’ 8 Then they remembered his words.

The events of Easter can seem a shocking surprise, how could they (we?) do this to Jesus? And yet, hindsight helps us to see that it was always God’s plan. The traces of it are shot through the Old Testament like a vein of precious ore in a mine, and even clearer on the lips of Jesus. He always knew this was the inevitable destination of his work.

Lord, thank you that you always had Easter in mind, the plan to redeem us through the life, death and resurrection of Christ.
