Geneva Notes on Luke 24: 36-53

"The preaching of the gospel, which was promised to the prophets, and performed in his time, is committed unto the apostles, the sum of which is repentance and remission of sins."

Lu 24:36

24:36 {6} And as they thus spake, Jesus himself stood in the
midst of them, and saith unto them, Peace [be] unto you.

(6) The Lord himself shows by certain and necessary signs that
he was risen again, and risen in the same body which he had
taken upon himself.

Lu 24:38

24:38 And he said unto them, Why are ye troubled? and why do {g}
thoughts arise in your hearts?

(g) Various and doubtful thoughts which fall often into
men's heads, when any strange thing occurs, thoughts
of which there is no great likelihood.

Lu 24:44

24:44 {7} And he said unto them, These [are] the words which I
spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things
must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses,
and [in] the prophets, and [in] the psalms, concerning me.

(7) The preaching of the gospel, which was promised to the
prophets, and performed in his time, is committed unto the
apostles, the sum of which is repentance and remission of
sins.

Lu 24:47

24:47 And that repentance and remission of sins should be
preached in his name among all nations, {h} beginning at
Jerusalem.

(h) The apostles, who are the preachers of the gospel,
beginning at Jerusalem.

Lu 24:49

24:49 And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but
tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, {i} until ye be endued
with power from on high.

(i) Until the Holy Spirit comes down from heaven upon you.

Lu 24:50

24:50 {8} And he led them out as far as to Bethany, and he
lifted up his hands, and blessed them.

(8) Christ ascends into heaven, and departing bodily from his
disciples, fills their hearts with the Holy Spirit.
