Jesus’ Victory over Death

Luke 24

 

Introduction:

 

  • You know that you are going to die.  How does that fact make you feel?
  • Why must all people die?
  • What would you do if someone told you that they saw a dead person come back to life?

 

Vocabulary:

The Eleven (9, 33) – These are the original twelve disciples except for Judas who betrayed Jesus, and killed himself.

Prophet (19) – A prophet is a spokesperson for God.

Redeem Israel (21) -- They had hoped that Jesus would set the Jewish nation of Israel free from the domination of the Roman Empire.

Christ (25, 46) – The Christ was the redeemer God promised to send the Jews.  They had waited hundreds of years for him.

Scriptures (27, 32, 45) – The Scriptures refers to the Law of Moses, the Prophets, and the Psalms (44), the Old Testament of the Bible.

Simon (34) – Also known as Simon Peter, he was one of the twelve disciples (or apostles).  He was a leader among them.

Repentance (47) – To repent is to change your mind, or to turn your life away from sin to follow God.
