Jesus Appears to His Disciples

Luke 24

36 As they were talking about these things, c Jesus himself stood among them, and said to them, "Peace to you!" 37 But they were d startled and e frightened and f thought they saw a spirit. 38 And he said to them, "Why are you troubled, and why do doubts arise in your hearts? 39 See my hands and my feet, that it is I myself. g Touch me, and see. For a spirit does not have flesh and bones as you see that I have." 40 And when he had said this, h he showed them his hands and his feet. 41 And while they still disbelieved i for joy and were marveling, j he said to them, "Have you anything here to eat?" 42 They gave him a piece of broiled fish, 1 43 and he took it and ate before them.

44 Then he said to them, k "These are my words that I spoke to you while I was still with you, l that everything written about me in the Law of Moses and the Prophets and the Psalms must be fulfilled." 45 Then m he opened their minds to understand the Scriptures, 46 and said to them, "Thus n it is written, o that the Christ should suffer and on the third day p rise from the dead, 47 and that q repentance and forgiveness of sins should be proclaimed r in his name s to all nations, t beginning from Jerusalem. 48 u You are witnesses of these things. 49 And behold, I am sending v the promise of my Father upon you. But stay in the city until you w are clothed with x power y from on high."
