Experiences of the Risen Christ

In the last post we addressed Jesus’ appearance to Mary.  Appearances to others is addressed in this post.  Luke 24:13-35; Mark 16:12,13 tells of Jesus joining two disciples on their walk to Emmaus. He joined them for a meal.  It is not until he breaks bread and gives thanks that they recognize him as Jesus; and then his figure vanishes from their sight.

John 20:24-29 tells us that when Jesus first met with the disciples, Thomas was not present and doubted their report that Jesus lived.  So, Jesus later appears to Thomas and confronts his unbelief.  For the sake of those readers of the Gospel of Luke who did not know Jesus, Luke concludes in verse 29, ” “Because you have seen me, you have believed; blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.”

John 21:1-14 tells of Jesus appearance to his disciples as they had spent a night fishing to no avail, after which he tells them to cast on the right side of the boat and they miraculously catch more than they can haul in.
