Second, Luke records Christ’s words in Acts 1:4 as a reminder of something He had told them earlier, saying which you heard [past tense] of from Me.” If this is indeed a reminder of something He said earlier (specifically 40 days earlier as the chronology of vv3-4 indicates), then the passage in Luke 24:50-53 is not the ascension Luke describes in Acts 1:9-11.

In concluding this lengthy three-part study, I’ll boldly go so far as to say that there is not a single statement in the entire passage that either reveals anything about the nature of the Dispensation of Grace (the church of today, the mystery hidden in God), or that should be taken as something that believers should necesarily interpret as commands to them from the lips of our Lord. Of course, the Bible admonishes us to study and understand this passage and appreciate its eternal significance, which I certainly do. But the One who I claim as Lord and Savior is now a different person than the One who diligently prepared His disciples in this passage in Luke. He is not different in essence, but He is different in appearance and message. His time in a human body was completed when He ascended into Heaven, and since that time, as the Apostle Paul says, “even though we have known Christ according to the flesh, yet now we know Him thus no longer.” (II Corinthians 5:16) From the time of His ascension to today and on into the future, He is as Paul saw Him on the road to Damascus — clothed in unapproachably brilliant light, and yet as loving and gentle toward me as Paul was toward the ever-excessive Corinthians, like a mother nursing her child. Jesus’ training of His disciples during His earthly ministry was for a different time and dispensation, still waiting in the wings to be fulfilled. As Paul concludes when speaking of the Gentile wild vines grafted into the One True Vine in Israel’s place, Oh the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and unfathomable His ways!… For from Him and through Him and to Him are all things. To Him be the glory forever. Amen. (Romans 11:33,36)
v23 – Luke tells us that Paul spent “some time” in Antioch. Passages like these are what make it difficult to construct an accurate time line of Paul’s life and ministry. However long he remained, eventually he felt a need to revisit the churches he had begun. He traveled through Galatia and Phrygia — Pisidian Antioch, Iconium, Lycaonia, Lystra, Derbe, and other communities that were part of the first missionary journey, modern day central Turkey.

On the verge of bloodshed, one Pharisee stepped forth. Remember that the Pharisees were a member of the “house minority” (see v17), so it took some courage for this man to speak up. His name was Gamaliel. He certainly had wisdom and the respect of his peers. Was he the same man who was responsible for Paul’s education in the “School of Gamaliel”? (Acts 22:3) Please read what he suggested for yourself now in vv34-39 before proceeding through the next part of the blog post.

“…and abundant grace was upon them all, for there was not a needy person among them, for all who were owners of land or houses would sell them and bring the proceeds of the sales, and lay them at the apostles’ feet; and they would be distributed to each as any had need. And Joseph, a Levite of Cyprian birth, who was also called Barnabas by the apostles (which translated means, Son of Encouragement), and who owned a tract of land, sold it and brought the money and laid it at the apostles’ feet.” (Acts 4:33b-37)

Anna’s impulsive glance is full of sudden realization, as if she had just been tapped on the shoulder by an unseen hand. At the age of 84 she had lived most of her adult life in the Temple, fasting and praying night and day, never leaving the Temple grounds. Luke records that she came up to Mary and Joseph “at that very moment” (we assume the moment that Simeon was speaking with Mary), and then began telling “all those who were looking for the redemption of Jerusalem.” (Luke 2:36-38)
