Bible: Luke 24:44-49

Jesus’ Final Commission

24:44 Then 1  he said to them, “These are my words that I spoke to you while I was still with you, that everything written about me 2  in the law of Moses and the prophets and the psalms 3  must be fulfilled.” 24:45 Then he opened their minds so they could understand the scriptures, 4  24:46 and said to them, “Thus it stands written that the Christ 5  would suffer 6  and would rise from the dead on the third day, 24:47 and repentance 7  for the forgiveness of sins would be proclaimed 8  in his name to all nations, 9  beginning from Jerusalem. 10  24:48 You are witnesses 11  of these things. 24:49 And look, I am sending you 12  what my Father promised. 13  But stay in the city 14  until you have been clothed with power 15  from on high.”
