Jesus Appearance After Resurrection


John 20:1-8 “Early on the first day of the week, while it was still dark, Mary Magdalene went to the tomb and saw that the stone had been removed from the entrance. So she came running to Simon Peter and the other disciple, the one Jesus loved, and said, “They have taken the Lord out of the tomb, and we don’t know where they have put him!” So Peter and the other disciple started for the tomb. Both were running, but the other disciple outran Peter and reached the tomb first. He bent over and looked in at the strips of linen lying there but did not go in. Then Simon Peter came along behind him and went straight into the tomb. He saw the strips of linen lying there, as well as the cloth that had been wrapped around Jesus’ head. The cloth was still lying in its place, separate from the linen. Finally the other disciple, who had reached the tomb first, also went inside. He saw and believed.”

Read the rest of John chapter twenty

You will note that after Jesus arose He appeared to Mary Magdalene, ten disciples, Thomas was absent, again with Thomas present, and again to disciples at the Sea of Tiberias. And in His resurrected body Jesus had all His former abilities, Among them He could see, feel, talk, walk, and eat. Thus we can know we will be able do the same.

Prayer thought:  Father in heaven, Thank You for a living Savior who knows all our human needs. We praise and thank You in Jesus’ name. Amen.
