It is said that Jesus appeared to His disciples at least 10 times after His resurrection and before His ascension. There were likely other appearances that are not recorded, for Scripture says,
Now Jesus did many other signs in the presence of his disciples, which are not written in this book.John 20:30 NRSV
After the Risen Lord appeared to the men on the Road to Emmaus, they reported their experience to the disciples in Jerusalem.
That same hour they got up and returned to Jerusalem; and they found the eleven and their companions gathered together. 34 They were saying, “The Lord has risen indeed, and he has appeared to Simon!” 35 Then they told what had happened on the road, and how he had been made known to them in the breaking of the bread. 36 While they were talking about this, Jesus himself stood among them and said to them, “Peace be with you.” 37 They were startled and terrified, and thought that they were seeing a ghost. 38 He said to them, “Why are you frightened, and why do doubts arise in your hearts? 39 Look at my hands and my feet; see that it is I myself. Touch me and see; for a ghost does not have flesh and bones as you see that I have.” 40 And when he had said this, he showed them his hands and his feet. 41 While in their joy they were disbelieving and still wondering, he said to them, “Have you anything here to eat?” 42 They gave him a piece of broiled fish, 43 and he took it and ate in their presence.LUKE 24:34-43 NRSV
“In their joy they were disbelieving and still wondering.” Oh isn’t that just like us? He was not an apparition of some kind, but a living, breathing, resurrected man! The song by Andrew Peterson that I posted Easter Day has been beating in my veins for days. I just have to play it over and over again. Not from unbelief, mind you, but in celebration and rejoicing! He is alive and inhabiting His people. Rejoice in that!
His heart beats His blood begins to flow Waking up what was dead a moment ago And His heart beats, now everything is changed 'Cause the blood that brought us peace with God Is racing through His veins And His heart beats His heart beats He breathes in His living lungs expand The heavy air surrounding death turns to breath again He breathes out He is word and flesh once more The Lamb of God slain for us is a Lion ready to roar And His heart beats So crown Him the Lord of Life Crown Him the Lord of Love Crown Him the Lord of All He took one breath And put death to death Where is your sting, O grave? How grave is your defeat I know, I know His heart beats He rises, glorified in flesh Clothed in immortality, the firstborn from the dead He rises, and His work's already done So He's resting as He rises to reclaim the Bride He won And His heart beats So crown Him the Lord of Life Crown Him the Lord of Love Crown Him the Lord of All The last enemy to be destroyed is death The last enemy to be destroyed is death He must reign until no enemy is left The last enemy to be destroyed, to be destroyed is death His heart beats, He will never die again I know that death no longer has dominion over Him So my heart beats with the rhythm of the saints As I look for the seeds the King has down To burst up from their graves How great, how great is His victory I know, I know His heart beats I know, I know His heart beats His heart beats
