WE CONCLUDE our study of the gospels this week with the accounts of the Resurrection. We discuss the gospel accounts of the encounter at the empty tomb and why the apparent contradictions are not contradictions at all, the significance of the first witnesses to the risen Christ being women, and Peter’s sermon on Pentecost, the first post-Resurrection sermon in the history of Christianity.

OUR NEW Testament study moves to the events of the final week of Jesus’ ministry before the Crucifixion.
We discuss the Kingdom of God, the prophetic nature of the parable of the ten minas, the salvation of Zacchaeus the tax collector, Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem, the growing plot to kill Jesus (and Lazarus!), and the significance of the Mount of Olives.
