Hi
Moving on

     So Peter went out with the other disciple, and they were going toward the tomb. Both of them were running together, but the other disciple outran Peter and reached the tomb first. And stooping to look in, he saw the linen cloths lying there, but he did not go in. Then Simon Peter came, following him, and went into the tomb. He saw the linen cloths lying there, and the face cloth, which had been on Jesus? head, not lying with the linen cloths but folded up in a place by itself. Then the other disciple, who had reached the tomb first, also went in, and he saw and believed; for as yet they did not understand the Scripture, that he must rise from the dead. Then the disciples went back to their homes.
John 20:3-‬10 ESV

Here we have the two decipels going to the tomb there must be at least two or three witnesses Mary on her own was not enough.
So the two deciples witnessed that the tomb was empty but still they did not understand that our Lord had risen from the dead although he had told them it would happen.

Love and Peace

    But Mary stood weeping outside the tomb, and as she wept she stooped to look into the tomb. And she saw two angels in white, sitting where the body of Jesus had lain, one at the head and one at the feet. They said to her, ?Woman, why are you weeping?? She said to them, ?They have taken away my Lord, and I do not know where they have laid him.? Having said this, she turned around and saw Jesus standing, but she did not know that it was Jesus. Jesus said to her, ?Woman, why are you weeping? Whom are you seeking?? Supposing him to be the gardener, she said to him, ?Sir, if you have carried him away, tell me where you have laid him, and I will take him away.? Jesus said to her, ?Mary.? She turned and said to him in Aramaic, ?Rabboni!? (which means Teacher). Jesus said to her, ?Do not cling to me, for I have not yet ascended to the Father; but go to my brothers and say to them, ?I am ascending to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God.??
John 20:11-‬17 ESV

This covers the first appearance of our Lord after the crucifixion again we have evidence of the empty tomb
When Mary turns and sees our Lord she dose not recognise him I wonder why had his appearance changed it was only when He called her name that she recognised him.
Of course our Lord had now returned to what he was before a spiritual being maybe this is why he could not be touched.

Hi
Moving on

    Mary Magdalene went and announced to the disciples, ?I have seen the Lord??and that he had said these things to her. On the evening of that day, the first day of the week, the doors being locked where the disciples were for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood among them and said to them, ?Peace be with you.? When he had said this, he showed them his hands and his side. Then the disciples were glad when they saw the Lord. Jesus said to them again, ?Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, even so I am sending you.?
John 20:18-‬21 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/jhn.20.18-21.ESV       


Interesting that it was Mary a woman who was the first witness to the resurrection considering how women were treated in those days is it so that there is no difference between men and women in the church of Jesus Christ.
Then we have the first appearance of our Lord to his decipels this was the moment when they became apostles those who are sent.

Love and peace

     And when he had said this, he breathed on them and said to them, ?Receive the Holy Spirit. If you forgive the sins of any, thdecipels ey are forgiven them; if you withhold forgiveness from any, it is withheld.?
John 20:22-‬23 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/jhn.20.22-23.ESV     


Here we have that wonderful moment when the decipels were changed from decipels those who follow to those who are sent apostles
The decipels were given the full power of the Holy Spirit this had not been given before it had only spoken through the prophets.
Now the apostles had received the power of the Holy Spirit and would use it to go into the world and preach the gospel to all nations.

Love and Peace

   Now Thomas, one of the twelve, called the Twin, was not with them when Jesus came. So the other disciples told him, ?We have seen the Lord.? But he said to them, ?Unless I see in his hands the mark of the nails, and place my finger into the mark of the nails, and place my hand into his side, I will never believe.?
John 20:24-‬25 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/jhn.20.24-25.ESV     


Howmany of us are doubting Thomas's although we have quite a few eye witness accounts of the resurrected Christ refuse to believe.
You can take it for a fact that Christ has risen from the dead and is sitting at the right hand of God the Father.
Don't be a doubting Thomas believe

   Eight days later, his disciples were inside again, and Thomas was with them. Although the doors were locked, Jesus came and stood among them and said, ?Peace be with you.? Then he said to Thomas, ?Put your finger here, and see my hands; and put out your hand, and place it in my side. Do not disbelieve, but believe.? Jesus said to him, ?Have you believed because you have seen me? Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.?
John 20:26-‬27, ‬29 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/jhn.20.26-29.ESV     


There is a lesson to be learned here about all those who have not seen and have believed including us today there are many doubting Thomas's out there who won't believe unless they see but the next time we see our Lord it may be to late.
We have quite a few eyewitness accounts so let us believe them its a witnessed fact Jesus Christ is risen.

Love and Peace

     Now Jesus did many other signs in the presence of the disciples, which are not written in this book; but these are written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name.
John 20:30-‬31 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/jhn.20.30-31.ESV     


Not everything Jesus did here on earth is recorded but there is certainly enough to proove that he is the son of God he did many miracles from giving sight to the blind to raising the dead all witnessed by two or more witnesses what more proof do we need.
Then we have what he has done from the beginning of time up to the present and what he will do in the future how can anyone doubt he is the son of God.

Love and Peace

Hi
Moving on

Rather a large section

    After this Jesus revealed himself again to the disciples by the Sea of Tiberias, and he revealed himself in this way. Simon Peter, Thomas (called the Twin), Nathanael of Cana in Galilee, the sons of Zebedee, and two others of his disciples were together. Simon Peter said to them, ?I am going fishing.? They said to him, ?We will go with you.? They went out and got into the boat, but that night they caught nothing. Just as day was breaking, Jesus stood on the shore; yet the disciples did not know that it was Jesus. Jesus said to them, ?Children, do you have any fish?? They answered him, ?No.? He said to them, ?Cast the net on the right side of the boat, and you will find some.? So they cast it, and now they were not able to haul it in, because of the quantity of fish. That disciple whom Jesus loved therefore said to Peter, ?It is the Lord!? When Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he put on his outer garment, for he was stripped for work, and threw himself into the sea. The other disciples came in the boat, dragging the net full of fish, for they were not far from the land, but about a hundred yards off. When they got out on land, they saw a charcoal fire in place, with fish laid out on it, and bread. Jesus said to them, ?Bring some of the fish that you have just caught.? So Simon Peter went aboard and hauled the net ashore, full of large fish, 153 of them. And although there were so many, the net was not torn. Jesus said to them, ?Come and have breakfast.? Now none of the disciples dared ask him, ?Who are you?? They knew it was the Lord. This was now the third time that Jesus was revealed to the disciples after he was raised from the dead.
John 21:1-‬12, ‬14 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/jhn.21.1-14.ESV           


This is the third time Jesus shows himself to his decipels its strange that they bid not recognise him atfirst but later the most important thing is that they were able to witness for us that the Lord had risen.
Our Lord had told them before that he would make them fishers of men and I think maybe the large catch symbolises this.
Then we have the decipel Jesus loved who was he I have wondered was he Judus Iscariot who betrayed him after all Christ died for the sins of the world and Judas was the greatest sinner he was responsible for the death of the son of God.

Love and Peace
