The Victory of Jesus
TEXTBOOK : pg. 179 - 184
BEFORE YOU BEGIN:
Close your eyes and imagine that you are in heaven. What does it look like?....Sound like?....What is going on around you?
Now imagine that you have a chance to return to Earth and visit. What you would tell your family, your best friend, or a stranger about heaven?
In the last lesson, you saw that Jesus died, as we all must die. Today you will learn the events that followed Jesus’ Death and how they changed our lives forever. You will study the basis for our belief in eternal life—the Resurrection.
Now start the textbook work by completing the activity "I Believe on page 179".
This Sunday’s Gospel (Luke 24:13–35) talks about one of the most famous sightings that took place after Jesus' resurrection. It tells the classic story of the presence of the Risen Jesus in the lives of his followers.
Two discouraged disciples walk home to Emmaus after Jesus’ Death in Jerusalem. A stranger falls in step and helps them see that the Messiah was not to be a triumphant king, but a suffering servant. At supper, they recognize the stranger as Jesus in the breaking of the bread.
At Mass, we listen to the Scripture and we recognize the Risen Christ in the community and in the breaking of the Eucharistic bread.
