TWELVE APPEARANCES OF CHRIST BETWEEN HIS RESURRECTION AND ASCENSION
Appearance to: Text:
1. Mary Magdalene

Now when Jesus was risen early the first day of the week, He appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom He had cast seven devils.

- Mark 16:9

2. The Women

And as they went to tell His disciples, behold, Jesus met them, saying, All hail. And they came and held Him by the feet, and worshipped Him.

- I Corinthians 15:5

4. Two disciples
(at Emmaus)

And it came to pass, as He sat at meat with them, He took bread, and blessed it,and brake, and gave to them.
And their eyes were opened, and they knew Him; and He vanished out of their sight.

- Luke 24:30-31

5. Ten apostles
(Thomas absent)

Then the same day at evening, being the first day of the week, when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled for fear of the Jews, came Jesus and stood in the midst, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you.
But Thomas, one of the twelve, called Didymus, was not with them when Jesus came.

- John 20:19,24

6. Eleven apostles
(Thomas present)

And after eight days again His disciples were within, and Thomas with them: then came Jesus, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, Peace be unto you.

- John 20:26

7. Seven apostles
(at the Sea of Galilee)

But when the morning was now come, Jesus stood on the shore: but the disciples knew not that it was Jesus.

- John 21:4

8. Eleven apostles
(at a mount in Galilee)

Then the eleven disciples went away into Galilee, unto a mountain where Jesus had appointed them.
And when they saw Him, they worshipped Him: but some doubted.

- Matthew 28:16-17

9. Five hundred disciples

After that, He was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep.

- 1 Corinthians 15:6

10. James

- 1 Corinthians 15:7

11. Eleven apostles
(at Bethany)

And when He had spoken these things, while they beheld, He was taken up; and a cloud received Him out of their sight.

- Acts 1:9

12. Paul
(after the ascension)

And last of all He was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time.

- I Corinthians 15:8

 

The former treatise have I made, O Theophilus, of all that Jesus began both to do and teach,

Until the day in which He was taken up, after that He through the Holy Ghost had given commandments unto the apostles whom He had chosen:

To whom also He shewed Himself alive after His passion by many infallible proofs, being seen of them forty days, and speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom of God.

- Acts 1:1-3

 


Read 1 Corinthians 15:14-18:

And if Christ be not risen, then is our preaching vain, and your faith is also vain.
Yea, and we are found false witnesses of God: because we have testified of God that He raised up Christ: whom He raised not up, if so be that the dead rise not.
For if the dead rise not, then is not Christ raised:
And if Christ be not raised, your faith is vain; ye are yet in your sins.
Then they also which are fallen asleep in Christ are perished.

Why is the resurrection of Christ so thoroughly witnessed and verified in Scripture?



Why does Paul speak of himself as an apostle "born out of due time"?
