Jesus: "The day
of resurrection was more lively than depicted in this scene but even though
there are departures from the scriptures I have no serious objections to the
movie so long as people take the time to read the gospel accounts which tell of
the angels at the tomb when three women including my mother Mary, another
unnamed woman and Mary Magdalene who was portrayed in this scene and Thomas was
not there when I reunited with the other disciples but I met with Thomas later
which is also written and I spent time with my disciples and hundreds of
followers who I taught the meaning of my incarnation as a man and my mission to
judge sin and the promise of eternal life starting with my glorified body and
the promise of my second coming to complete my earthly mission to rule as King
of kings and Lord of lords over the Stone Kingdom as prophesied by Daniel as
given him by Gabriel the Archangel while Daniel was in Babylon.
The movie showed John as an old man which did happen and through all the years he and I spent much time together. He died a peaceful death and I was with him to the end at which time he joined me in heaven. John and I wrote the Book of Revelation together but the version that has been around today is inaccurate because men who planned a fiery end to this planet added several chapters that I did not give to John through my angel and when everyone currently on earth is safe they will learn of this deception of the enemy as well and know how much more difficult the entire salvation plan became once expectations arose for a future great tribulation. Antichrist has been actively working to his utmost ability to defeat me but I defeated him at the cross and Jehovah granted me all ownership and authority of this world as well as the keys to death which I overcame as well."
Jesus: "Dr. Luke was one of my most faithful and learned followers who wrote the accounts of my life, death and resurrection and of the mission of the apostles and all my followers to go forth into the world and tell the story. The following are the last chapter of Luke and the first chapter of Acts both books being written by Luke who was a thorough and honest reporter of everything that he saw firsthand. He was a constant companion of Paul and together they grew the early church to what were then the far reaches of the known world."
Luke 24:1 Very early Sunday morning, the women came to the tomb where Jesus' body was laid. They brought the sweet-smelling spices they had prepared.
Luke 24:2 They saw that the heavy stone that covered the entrance had been rolled away.
Luke 24:3 They went in, but they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus.
Luke 24:4 They did not understand this. While they were wondering about it, two men in shining clothes stood beside them.
Luke 24:5 The women were very afraid. They bowed down with their faces to the ground. The men said to them, "Why are you looking for a living person here? This is a place for dead people.
Luke 24:6 Jesus is not here. He has risen from death. Do you remember what he said in Galilee?
Luke 24:7 He said the Son of Man must be handed over to the control of sinful men, be killed on a cross, and rise from death on the third day."
Luke 24:8 Then the women remembered what Jesus had said.
Luke 24:9 The women left the tomb and went to the eleven apostles and the other followers. They told them everything that happened at the tomb.
Luke 24:10 These women were Mary Magdalene, Joanna, Mary, the mother of James, and some others. They told the apostles everything that happened.
Luke 24:11 But the apostles did not believe what they said. It sounded like nonsense.
Luke 24:12 But Peter got up and ran to the tomb to see. He looked in, but he saw only the cloth that Jesus' body had been wrapped in. It was just lying there. Peter went away to be alone, wondering what had happened.
Luke 24:13 That same day two of Jesus' followers were going to a town named Emmaus. It is about seven miles from Jerusalem.
Luke 24:14 They were talking about everything that had happened.
Luke 24:15 While they were talking, discussing these things, Jesus himself came near and walked with them.
Luke 24:16 (But the two men were not allowed to recognize Jesus.)
Luke 24:17 He asked them, "What's this I hear you discussing with each other as you walk?" The two men stopped, their faces looking very sad.
Luke 24:18 The one named Cleopas said, "You must be the only person in Jerusalem who doesn't know what has just happened there."
Luke 24:19 Jesus said, "What are you talking about?" They said, "It's about Jesus, the one from Nazareth. To God and to all the people he was a great prophet. He said and did many powerful things.
Luke 24:20 But our leaders and the leading priests handed him over to be judged and killed. They nailed him to a cross.
Luke 24:21 We were hoping that he would be the one to free Israel. But then all this happened. "And now something else: It has been three days since he was killed,
Luke 24:22 but today some of our women told us an amazing thing. Early this morning they went to the tomb where the body of Jesus was laid.
Luke 24:23 But they did not find his body there. They came and told us they had seen some angels in a vision. The angels told them Jesus was alive!
Luke 24:24 So some of our group went to the tomb too. It was just as the women said. They saw the tomb, but they did not see Jesus."
Luke 24:25 Then Jesus said to the two men, "You are foolish and slow to realize what is true. You should believe everything the prophets said.
Luke 24:26 The prophets said the Messiah must suffer these things before he begins his time of glory."
Luke 24:27 Then he began to explain everything that had been written about himself in the Scriptures. He started with the books of Moses and then he talked about what the prophets had said about him.
Luke 24:28 They came near the town of Emmaus, and Jesus Actsed as if he did not plan to stop there.
Luke 24:29 But they wanted him to stay. They begged him, "Stay with us. It's almost night. There's hardly any daylight left." So he went in to stay with them.
Luke 24:30 Joining them at the supper table, Jesus took some bread and gave thanks. Then he broke some off and gave it to them.
Luke 24:31 Just then the men were allowed to recognize him. But when they saw who he was, he disappeared.
Luke 24:32 They said to each other, "When he talked to us on the road, it felt like a fire burning in us. How exciting it was when he explained to us the true meaning of the Scriptures!"
Luke 24:33 So the two men got up then and went back to Jerusalem. There they found the followers of Jesus meeting together. The eleven apostles and the people with them
Luke 24:34 said, "The Lord really has risen from death! He appeared to Simon."
Luke 24:35 Then the two men told what had happened on the road. They talked about how they recognized Jesus when he shared the bread with them.
Luke 24:36 While the two men were saying these things to the other followers, Jesus himself came and stood among them. He said to them, "Peace be with you."
Luke 24:37 This surprised the followers. They were afraid. They thought they were seeing a ghost.
Luke 24:38 But Jesus said, "Why are you troubled? Why do you doubt what you see?
Luke 24:39 Look at my hands and my feet. It's really me. Touch me. You can see that I have a living body; a ghost does not have a body like this."
Luke 24:40 After Jesus told them this, he showed them his hands and his feet.
Luke 24:41 The followers were amazed and very, very happy to see that Jesus was alive. They still could not believe what they saw. He said to them, "Do you have any food here?"
Luke 24:42 They gave him a piece of cooked fish.
Luke 24:43 While the followers watched, he took the fish and ate it.
Luke 24:44 Jesus said to them, "Remember when I was with you before? I said that everything written about me must happen--everything written in the Law of Moses, the books of the prophets, and the Psalms."
Luke 24:45 Then Jesus helped the followers understand these Scriptures about him.
Luke 24:46 Jesus said to them, "It is written that the Messiah would be killed and rise from death on the third day.
Luke 24:47 You saw these things happen--you are witnesses. You must go and tell people that they must change and turn to God, which will bring them his forgiveness. You must start from Jerusalem and tell this message in my name to the people of all nations.
Luke 24:49 Remember that I will send you the one my Father promised. Stay in the city until you are given that power from heaven."
Luke 24:50 Jesus led his followers out of Jerusalem almost to Bethany. He raised his hands and blessed his followers.
Luke 24:51 While he was blessing them, he was separated from them and carried into heaven.
Luke 24:52 They worshiped him and went back to Jerusalem very happy.
Luke 24:53 They stayed at the Temple all the time, praising God.
Acts 1:1 Dear Theophilus, The first book I wrote was about everything Jesus did and taught from the beginning
Acts 1:2 until the day he was carried up into heaven. Before he went, he talked to the apostles he had chosen. With the help of the Holy Spirit, he told them what they should do.
Acts 1:3 This was after his death, but he showed them that he was alive, proving it to them in many ways. The apostles saw Jesus many times during the 40 days after he was raised from death. He spoke to them about God's kingdom.
Acts 1:4 One time when Jesus was eating with them, he told them not to leave Jerusalem. He said, "Wait here until you receive what the Father promised to send. Remember, I told you about it before.
Acts 1:5 John baptized people with water, but in a few days you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit."
Acts 1:6 The apostles were all together. They asked Jesus, "Lord, is this the time for you to give the people of Israel their kingdom again?"
Acts 1:7 Jesus said to them, "The Father is the only one who has the authority to decide dates and times. They are not for you to know.
Acts 1:8 But the Holy Spirit will come on you and give you power. You will be my witnesses. You will tell people everywhere about me--in Jerusalem, in the rest of Judea, in Samaria, and in every part of the world."
Acts 1:9 After Jesus said this, he was lifted up into the sky. While they were watching, he went into a cloud, and they could not see him.
Acts 1:10 They were staring into the sky where he had gone. Suddenly two men wearing white clothes were standing beside them.
Acts 1:11 They said, "Men from Galilee, why are you standing here looking into the sky? You saw Jesus carried away from you into heaven. He will come back in the same way you saw him go."
Acts 1:12 Then the apostles went back to Jerusalem from the Mount of Olives. This mountain is about a half mile from Jerusalem.
Acts 1:13 When they entered the city, they went to the upstairs room where they were staying. These are the ones who were there: Peter, John, James, Andrew, Philip, Thomas, Bartholomew, Matthew, James (the son of Alphaeus), Simon, the Zealot, and Judas (the son of James).
Acts 1:14 The apostles were all together. They were constantly praying with the same purpose. Some women, Mary the mother of Jesus, and his brothers were there with the apostles.
Acts 1:15 After a few days there was a meeting of the believers. There were about 120 of them. Peter stood up and said,
Acts 1:16 "Brothers and sisters, in the Scriptures the Holy Spirit said through David that something must happen. He was talking about Judas, one of our own group. Judas served together with us. The Spirit said that Judas would lead men to arrest Jesus."
Acts 1:18 (Judas was paid money for doing this. His money was used to buy him a field. But he fell on his head, his body broke open, and all his intestines poured out.
Acts 1:19 And all the people of Jerusalem learned about this. That is why they named that field Akeldama, which in their language means "field of blood.")
Acts 1:20 Peter said, "In the book of Psalms, this is written about Judas: 'People should not go near his land; no one should live there.' And it is also written: 'Let another man have his work.'
Acts 1:21 "So now another man must join us and be a witness of Jesus' resurrection. He must be one of those men who were part of our group during all the time the Lord Jesus was with us. He must have been with us from the time John was baptizing people until the day when Jesus was carried up from us into heaven."
Acts 1:23 They put two men before the group. One was Joseph Barsabbas. He was also called Justus. The other man was Matthias.
Acts 1:24 They prayed, "Lord, you know the minds of all people. Show us which one of these two men you choose to do this work. Judas turned away from it and went where he belongs. Lord, show us which man should take his place as an apostle!"
Acts 1:26 Then they used lots to choose one of the two men. The lots showed that Matthias was the one the Lord wanted. So he became an apostle with the other eleven.
