THE APPEARANCE OF JESUS 1). Jesus appeared to people from the day of his resurrection until his ascension forty days later. Ten distinct appearances are recorded in the Scriptures. They were at different places, times, and to different people. Jesus spoke, ate, drank, and embraced people. The eyewitnesses were convinced of his appearances. Finally, we are told that about five hundred people saw Jesus during this post-resurrection period. This constitutes credible, eye-witness testimony. 2). One explanation used to dismiss these sightings is hallucinations. This sounds like a plausible explanation until one realizes the data surrounding hallucinations supplied by modern medicine. As you look at this data you see that calling the appearance of Jesus mere hallucinations is impossible. His resurrection transformed them from scared renegades to powerful leaders of the first church. 2). Changed lives of people; yesterday, today, and tomorrow.
Scripture Matthew 28 Mark 16 Luke 24 John 20-21 Other verses about the resurrection: Acts 1: 1-11 1 Corinthians 15: 14 Ephesians 1: 19-20 Jesus appearances reported in the New Testament after resurrection- The primary accounts of the resurrection are in the Gospels: the last chapter of Matthew, of Mark, and of Luke, as well as the last two chapters of John. All these accounts agree that Jesus was killed by crucifixion and placed in a tomb. After observing the Sabbath, some of Jesus' female followers returned to the tomb, to complete the burial rites. When they arrived they discovered that the body had gone, and returned with some of the male disciples. Jesus then makes a series of appearances to the disciples, with the most notable being to Thomas and the other disciples in the upper room (Luke 20:26-31), along the road to Emmaus (Luke 24:13-32) and beside the Sea of Galilee to reinstate Peter (John 21:1-23). His final appearance is reported as being forty days after the resurrection when he ascended into heaven (Luke 24:44-49). The followings are reported:
1 Corinthians 15
  1. "seen of Cephas, then of the twelve" 15:5
  2. "seen of above five hundred brethren at once" 15:6
  3. "seen of James; then of all the apostles" 15:7
  4. "last of all he was seen of me" (Paul) 15:8-9, also claimed in 9:1
Matthew 28 To Mary Magdalene and "the other Mary," as they were running from the empty tomb to inform the
  1. disciples. Jesus tells the women to instruct the disciples to go to Galilee to meet him.
  2. To the eleven, on a mountain in Galilee where Jesus had told the apostles to go, see Great Commission.
Mark 16
  1. To Mary Magdalene, Mary, the mother of James, and Salome.
  2. To two of Jesus's followers as they were walking in the countryside (Jesus appeared to them in "another form").
  3. To the eleven while they were dining.
Luke 24
  1. To Cleopas and one other disciple as they walked to Emmaus. At first "their eyes were holden" so that they could not recognize him. Later while having supper at Emmaus "their eyes were opened" and they recognized him.
  2. To "Simon." This appearance is not described directly by Luke but it is reported by the other apostles.
  3. To the eleven, together with some others (including Cleopas and his companion), in Jerusalem.
John 20-21
  1. To Mary of Magdala. At first she did not recognize him and thought that he was a gardener. When he said her name, she recognized him.
  2. To the disciples (not including Thomas) on that same day. They were indoors "for fear of the Jews." Jesus entered and stood in their midst while the doors were shut.
  3. To the disciples including Thomas, called Didymus. This was a week later, again indoors, and resulted in the famous doubting Thomas conversation.
  4. To "Simon Peter, Thomas called Didymus, Nathanael from Cana in Galilee, Zebedee's sons and two other of his disciples", by Lake Tiberias, see also Catch of 153 fish. The disciple whom Jesus loved was present in this group.
  1. To the Church in Jerusalem - forty days after the resurrection after which he ascended into heaven, with a prophecy to return (1:1-11).
  2. To Saul (Paul), on the Road to Damascus, though according to the text, it was a voice, not a vision, as Paul was blinded by a light (9:3-9, 22:6-11, 26:12-18) and also when Paul was in a trance he saw the Lord speaking (22:17-21).
  3. Peter also heard a voice while in a trance (10:9-16, 11:4-10).
  1. John of Patmos experiences a vision of the resurrected Jesus Christ described in 1:12-20.
Personal application: But these are written, that you might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing you might have life through his name. John 20:31
