Doubt, Joy and Power

Today’s sermon comes from a series on the life of Jesus in the gospel of Luke. We come to the end of the book that describes multiple scenes of Jesus interacting with different groups of people after his death, burial, and resurrection. Specifically in Luke 24:36-49, he appears to his disciples and helps them understand the meaning of the events that had happened. 

Jesus does four things in this passage that change the lives of his disciples forever, and because he’s the risen Jesus, he can do the very same things to us right now. 1) He answers the doubts of their minds; 2) he satisfies the needs of their hearts by eating with them; 3) he reforges the direction of their lives by sending them, and 3) he shows them his hand and his feet.

This sermon was preached by Dr. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on April 20, 2003. Series: “The Meaning of Jesus Part 3; Seeing Him.” Scripture: Luke 24:36-49.
