“You Are Witnesses Of These Things” (Easter 3)

The Disciples are witnesses to an extraordinary event. They physically touch the Risen Jesus and see Him eat food. They are witnesses to the “resurrection of the body” - as we say in the Apostles Creed. You do not choose to be a witness. You are a witness because you were there and saw or experienced something. In our baptism we promised to obey Jesus which includes being a witness. Witnesses who share what they have seen or experienced are essential to evangelism. 


1. You are my witnesses of these things (Luke 24.48)
