Jesus after the resurrection

Cross Picture

On Sunday we will celebrate the bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ as it had been foretold by the ancient Hebrew Prophets of the Scriptures.  Jesus was on the road to Emmaus after his resurrection when he engaged two men who were talking about the days’ events.  They were surprised that he wasn’t aware of the days’ happening in Jerusalem, a city at that time of about 40,000 inhabitants.  Jesus said to them, “How foolish you are, and how slow to believe all that the prophets have spoken! Did not the Messiah have to suffer these things and then enter his glory?” And beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, he explained to them what was said in all the Scriptures concerning himself.” Luke 24:25-27.  Read the full account of Jesus on the road to Emmaus here.

In believing in his resurrection, we see Jesus as not merely a prophet or a great teacher but as God in person.  He said at various times that he was the great “I AM” As doubting Thomas said after putting his fingers into the wounds on Jesus’ hands and on Jesus’ side exclaimed, “My Lord and my God”   His death and the giving up of his spirit was voluntary, contrary to what is taught in Mormon theology where they say that life was taken from him as if he didn’t have control over his own death.  He voluntarily gave up his life for us.

At SOR Mission we continue to show the power of the resurrection by helping those in need with a hand up in life.

After the resurrection Jesus taught us that in as much as we help the least of these amoung us we are helping show the reality of the death and resurrection of Jesus the Messiah of God.

I welcome you to put your trust in Jesus our Messiah, Jehovah God and the Creator of the Universe. This is the work of SOR Mission.

Happy Easter
