Divine Gospel

Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.
Our Lord God, Savior, and King of us all, Jesus Christ, the Living Son of God to whom be glory forever.

Luke 24 : 36 - 53

Chapter 24

36Now as they said these things, Jesus Himself stood in the midst of them, and said to them, "Peace to you."
37But they were terrified and frightened, and supposed they had seen a spirit.
38And He said to them, "Why are you troubled? And why do doubts arise in your hearts?
39Behold My hands and My feet, that it is I Myself. Handle Me and see, for a spirit does not have flesh and bones as you see I have."
40When He had said this, He showed them His hands and His feet.
41But while they still did not believe for joy, and marveled, He said to them, "Have you any food here?"
42So they gave Him a piece of a broiled fish and some honeycomb.
43And He took it and ate in their presence.
44Then He said to them, "These are the words which I spoke to you while I was still with you, that all things must be fulfilled which were written in the Law of Moses and the Prophets and the Psalms concerning Me."
45And He opened their understanding, that they might comprehend the Scriptures.
46Then He said to them, "Thus it is written, and thus it was necessary for the Christ to suffer and to rise from the dead the third day,
47and that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in His name to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.
48And you are witnesses of these things.
49Behold, I send the Promise of My Father upon you; but tarry in the city of Jerusalem until you are endued with power from on high."
50And He led them out as far as Bethany, and He lifted up His hands and blessed them.
51Now it came to pass, while He blessed them, that He was parted from them and carried up into heaven.
52And they worshiped Him, and returned to Jerusalem with great joy,
53and were continually in the temple praising and blessing God. Amen.

And Glory be to God forever.
