Even though Jesus spoke of the resurrection, Scripture doesn't indicate that there were any followers who were anticipating it. Instead, they cowered in fear, and grieved the loss of a friend. But when these followers of Jesus saw the risen king it changed everything. It proved that Jesus was who he said he was and could do what he said he could do. The resurrection made all of Scripture come alive as it pointed to Jesus and allowed those who follow Him to walk in the peace that he brings. Additionally, the resurrection causes us to worship with Joy the risen savior.
Thousands of years ago, people still had questions about the life and words of Jesus. Not long after the death of Jesus, a physician named Luke set out to investigate many of the stories surrounding his life, death, and resurrection. In his letter, Luke invites and answers many of the questions we have still today about this man who calls himself the son of the living God. No matter where you are and what you've been through, God's not scared of your past or your questions. Neither is Exchange. Bring your questions and your past and find a God and church that loves you.
