The Return Home

      No Comments on The Return Home

His instruction to those who had travelled with him was to leave Jerusalem and return home to Galilee. They spent another week in the city before setting off home. As they walked the now familiar road back to Galilee, the events of the past few weeks played through their minds…

The triumphal entry into Jerusalem and the anticipation of the coming Kingdom…
The Passover meal in the upper room where He had washed their feet…
His arrest in the garden with Jesus handing himself over without a fight…
Judas’ betrayal of Jesus and then his suicide plus their own denial of him…
Jesus unfair trial, where he was beaten and ridiculed…
His cruel and slow death on a cross…
His burial in a borrowed tomb…
His amazing return to life after being dead for three days…
His appearance to them in the locked room and again a week later when Jesus invited Thomas, who didn’t believe the others that Jesus was alive, to see for himself…

As they walked, they also thought about the future. What was going to happen? They had heard Jesus talk about wanting them to go into all the world with the gospel . . . but they didn’t really know what that meant or even how to start. So they went home.

But things were not the same…
