Lesson 5
THE LORD LIVES

DEVOTIONAL READING: Luke 24:22–26
BACKGROUND SCRIPTURE: Luke 24:1–35



KEY VERSE
And their eyes were opened, and they knew him; and he vanished out of their sight.—Luke 24:31


The KJV Standard Lesson Commentary, 2012–2013, ed. Ronald L. Nickelson and Jonathan Underwood (Cincinnati, OH: Standard, 2012). 265.

Believers Are Indwelt By the Spirit of God

Believers Are Indwelt By the Spirit of God
Key Verse: Romans 8:9



          I.      What Was True of the Roman Believers Is True of Any Believer
      A.      Paul spoke of his own liberation from the law of sin (Rom. 8:2) and of the Roman believers whom he referred to as “called of Jesus Christ” (Rom. 1:6) and “called saints” (v. 7). In 8:9 he stated unequivocally, “But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit.”
      B.      In the next phrase he moves on to apply this truth to any believer. The first word to follow is eíper, translated in the KJV “Now if.” This is a conditional conjunction made up of eí, if, and the enclitic participle per, used as an adverb with the meaning of indeed, very, wholly, ever. Thus eíper, the conditional conjunction, is made to mean not a mere “if,” but “since” and should be rendered “since indeed.” Thus eíper here becomes not a mere assumption, but an asserting of fact, especially since the verb “dwell” is not in the subjunctive, but in the indicative…

“With his stripes we are healed.” 
         — Isaiah 53:5

Pilate delivered our Lord to the lictors to be scourged. The Roman scourge was a most dreadful instrument of torture. It was made of the sinews of oxen, and sharp bones were inter-twisted every here and there among the sinews; so that every time the lash came down these pieces of bone inflicted fearful laceration, and tore off the flesh from the bone. The Saviour was, no doubt, bound to the column, and thus beaten. He had been beaten before; but this of the Roman lictors was probably the most severe of his flagellation  My soul, stand here and weep over his poor stricken body.

Believer in Jesus, can you gaze upon him without tears, as he stands before you the mirror of agonizing love? He is at once fair as the lily for innocence, and red as the rose with the crimson of his own blood. As we feel the sure and blessed healing which his stripes have wrought in us, does not our heart melt a…

Gifts and Grace

March 31: Gifts and Grace
Numbers 35:1–36:13; 1 Corinthians 16:5–24

“Yahweh spoke to Moses on the desert plains of Moab beyond the Jordan across Jericho, saying, ‘Command the children of Israel that they give to the Levites from the inheritance of their property cities to live in; and you will give to the Levites pastureland all around the cities’ ” (Num. 35:1–2).
The idea of giving is ancient. Before God’s people even enter the promised land, they’re commanded to help the Levites—who will be serving them as spiritual leaders—by giving them cities. Now that God has given to the people, He asks that they give back to His work. There is an opportunity for obedience, and this obedience will come with the blessing of continued spiritual guidance from the people to whom they are giving the land. But giving is not the only concept at play here.
Shortly after this, God asks the people to provide refuge cities for murderers (Num. 35:6–8). He institutes a system of grace—a type of house arrest.…
