Luke 24:36-48  

Our scripture is Luke’s story of Jesus’ appearance to the disciples after his appearance on the Road to Emmaus.  Dave Mezzera will bring the message this Sunday.  He’ll be sharing about a couple of post-Resurrection apparitions of Jesus (especially Luke 24 - a resurrected body, not just a ghost) and hint about Luke's follow-up (Acts of the Apostles) with the Ascension and look forward to Pentecost. After the downer of the crucifixion, the excitement and joy of the risen Jesus is illustrated in these various apparitions.
