Today is the Second Sunday of Easter, what shall we do in Adult Sunday School? My goof, one among many as ever, all of which I always blame on being 78 (wait until you get there, you will find that it's the real and perfect reason, not to say excuse), is that I failed to communicate and coordinate with my fellow class leaders so that we are all on the same page for the Sunday School hour. But I think this is the perfect moment to have a look at what Scripture tells us happened on Easter Day and just after. We have four accounts of that, Mark, Matthew, Luke and John -- and the first couple of chapters of Acts from which we shall be reading the next three Sunday mornings. We don’t have time to read everyone’s account, everyone remembers it slightly differently; so let’s stick with Luke’s account, seeing that as well as the Gospel according to Luke, he also wrote the Book of the Acts of the Apostles.
Our Sunday School plan for this morning, then, will be to read Luke chapter 24, Acts chapter 1, and Acts chapter 2. This will give us Luke’s report of Jesus’ resurrection appearances, Luke’s two slightly differing accounts of Jesus’ ascension, and his report of the Day of Pentecost, including Peter’s famous speech. It should be interesting to read and discuss.
