PODCAST: Yeshua in Context – Resurrection Mystery

Perplexity. Remembrance. Mystery. Continuity. These four themes are what Luke emphasizes in his resurrection account. All four gospels agree that the empty tomb was discovered on the first day of the week, that Mary Magdalene and other women discovered it, that the stone was already rolled away, and that there were variously one or two angelic figures there. All but Mark, with his short account, agree that the women reported to the disciples, that Yeshua appeared in Jerusalem, that people touched him, and that Yeshua commissioned his followers.

Why does Luke develop his account as he does? How do the perplexity, remembrance, and mystery themes work together? They tell us the resurrection is not something to be understood rationally. It happens to you and overwhelms you.

Yeshua in Context is due to be released August 30. The Sourcebook will be available in September. An audio book produced by First Fruits of Zion will be available in November. And an ebook version of Yeshua in Context should be available for Kindle, iPad, and other readers by September. Email derek4messiah@gmail.com to pre-order Yeshua in Context.
