Jesus' final words after his resurrection, such as "Go make disciples" and "Peace be with you," set the tone for each of the eight sessions of this Bible study and are the launching pad to explore such themes as community, reconciliation, the power of the Holy Spirit, and the call to evangelization. Each session features the Scripture text, a commentary, a series of reflection questions, a prayer, and a call to action.
Originally developed for use in Catholic parishes, Emmaus Journey Bible studies rely on the power of Scripture to change human hearts. The Words of the Risen Christ: A Bible Study on Jesus' Resurrection is a perfect follow-up to Rich Cleveland's popular study on Jesus' passion, The Seven Last Words of Christ. Whether used during the Easter season or at any other time of the liturgical year, for personal devotion or with a small faith-sharing group, this study will bring you closer to the Lord.
