Why did some of the disciples doubt Jesus even after they touched/handled his body in Matthew 28:17?


Matthew 28:17

YLT - 17 And having seen him, they bowed to him, but some did waver.

Without using scripture, Joyce. We are carnal-minded as humans and the best example I can give to you for the doubt of the disciples would be this:

It's Sunday and you have just attended a powerful, spirit filled message at church, you get into your car and get ready to pull out and head home, suddenly a person cuts you off, nearly side-swiping your car, and in an instant you become angry. And in that instant you have forgotten the entire sermon. But as you drive you compose yourself and acknowledge God for saving you from a near collision. 

We forget very quickly about spiritual things of Heaven, but Christ never did. If you will notice there are many scriptural reference pertaining to the quickness of life or end of life, or the coming of our Savior, and each one followed up by a common denominator: steadfastness. 

Remember, even after his disciples witnessed the feeding of the fishes and loaves they doubted Christ's ability to save them at sea.
