While Christians believe that Jesus defeated death by rising bodily from the grave, many today do not envision bodily resurrection as the high point of life after death for them.  Though the New Testament recognizes the reality of spiritual resurrection in the interim period before the return of Christ, it attaches far more importance to bodily resurrection.  What will life be like in our resurrected body?

C. One of the reasons people are bored with the idea of eternal life is because they believe it will be a life of i____________________________.

D. We human beings are meant to _____________ and to fulfill a mission, and so the resurrected Jesus used his knowledge to accomplish his mission.

IV Lastly, our resurrection body will be devoted to pursuing r__________________________ and to practicing h____________________________ (24:28-32).

A. What does it mean when Luke says, “Jesus acted as if he were going farther?”  

Jesus, though resurrected, still has the very great desire to be i_______________ into the lives of people.
