THE RESURRECTION OF JESUS
Resurrection means the return of Jesus Christ after his crucifixion and death. It is one of the Christian beliefs of the Christian religion.
Three days after Jesus was crucified, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James and Salome came to the tomb very early with spices to anoint His body. They were just discussing the problem of getting someone to roll away the stone from the tomb, they saw a young man in white clothes sitting on the right side of the tomb, they were afraid. The young man said he knew they were looking for Jesus who was buried he told them he was risen, He is not here, see the place where they laid him. As they were departing Jesus met them and greeted them. The women held His feet and worshipped him. Jesus told them not to be afraid, but go and tell his brethren that he has risen, and that they would see him at Galilee.
What is resurrection?
SIGNIFICANCE OF CHRIST RESURRECTION
By his resurrection, it is shown vividly that Jesus had victory over death, and these were made possible because of the divinity of Jesus Christ we cannot “doubt” or cover the truth, Jesus Christ resurrection could not be ‘eclipsed,’ Truth will always prevail.
The power of resurrection is our hope of eternity.
THE APPEARANCES OF JESUS [LUKE 24:13-35; JOHN 20:19-23, 24-29; 21:1-4]
JESUS APPEARS TO TWO DISCIPLES GOING TO EMMAUS.
Jesus appears to two disciples at Emmaus Jesus reminded on earth for 40 days after the resurrection and he appeared first to the women at the tomb. After he appeared to two disciples discussing the events relating on their ways to Emmaus unknown to them, Jesus drew near and went along with them, they narrated to him all that happen to Jesus of Nazareth, about his crucifixions and the news that he is risen, and how some of them had visited the tomb and found it empty. Jesus stayed blessed and broken the bread and gave to them. It was then their eyes were opened and they recognized that it was Jesus that had walked with them on the road. He vanished from their sight.
JESUS APPEARS TO MORE DISCIPLES AT JERUSALEM
While the disciples were still together at Jerusalem speaking about the appearance to two of them on the way to Emmaus, Jesus appeared in their midst. They were seeing a spirit. He asked them to feel parts of his body. “See my hands and my feet, for it is I myself handle me and see for a spirit has no bone or flesh. They were amazed and could not believe. They gave him a piece of boiled fish which he ate before them.
He reminded them of what the scripture said of him, His suffering, burial, resurrection and that repentance and forgiveness should be preached in His name beginning from Jerusalem.
He assured them that he would send the Holy Ghost as he promised them, but asked them to remain in the city of Jerusalem until they were clothed with power from heaven.
Describe the reaction of the disciples when they saw the resurrected Christ.
JESUS APPEARS TO THOMAS
Thomas, one of the disciples was absent when Jesus appeared and showed himself to the others therefore, he did not believe. He said unless I see his hands and the prints of the nails and place my finger in the marks of the nails and place my hands in his sides I will not believe.
Eight days later, the disciples including Thomas were together in a house with doors shut, Jesus then appeared to them. After saying “Peace be with you and He said to Thomas” Put your finger here and see my hand… do not be faithless but believing. Thomas believes and said “My Lord and my God” Jesus scolded for not believing without seeing him. Jesus then commented, blessed are those who have not seen but yet believe.
