…To Cleopas & the other disciple on the road to Emmaus, (Lk. 24:13-35 & Mark 16:12)

…To the 11 Apostles on Mt. Olivet while Ascending, (Luke 24:50-53 & Acts 1:4-12)

…To the 12 Apostles, (1st Corinthians 15:5-7)

Jesus said, “Do not be astonished at this; for an hour is coming, in which all who are in the tombs will hear His voice, and will rise, those who did the good deeds to a resurrection of life, those who committed the evil deeds to a resurrection of judgment”. John 5:28-29

“…there will certainly be a resurrection of both the righteous and the wicked”. Acts 24:15

Do you believe that Jesus can be seen as an example in you? The Apostle Paul did, read Galatians 1:16. When we talk about Jesus in a virtuous way, sharing our faith in His presence, love and wisdom. He is there. Even if we have problem that only affects two people. If they come together to prayerfully solve the problem, He, that is Jesus, is there with them, this is His promise. Read Matthew 18:20.

      Your welcome, it is the fruit of another study, I was actually doing some reading on Biblical numerology and was studying the number 12, when it occured to me to count the number of ways His resurrected appearance occured, and i found it interesting that it came to 12 :)
      Twelve in my study seems to always point to the desire of God to delegate his authority to men. 12 tribes, 12 apostles, 12 stones memorializing the tribes crossing the jordan, on and on it goes, just thought that was curiously connected to the delegation of his authority to those he appeared to. Wouldn’t we want or need authority to deliver a message on an event so stupendously incredible?
