Risen Lord



The New Testament records eleven appearances of the Risen Lord.

• To Mary Magdalene at the sepulcher. (John 20:11-18)

• To certain women, “the other Mary,” Salome, Joanna, and others, as they returned from the sepulcher. (Matthew 28:1-10)

• To Simon Peter on the day of the Resurrection. (Luke 24:34); (1 Corinthians 15:5)

• To the two disciples on the way to Emmaus on the day of the Resurrection. (Luke 24:13-35)

• To the ten apostles (Thomas being absent) and others “with them,” at Jerusalem on the evening of the Resurrection Day. (John 20:19-24)

• To the apostles again (Thomas being present) at Jerusalem. (Mark 16:14-18); (Luke 24:33-40); (John 20:26-28); (1 Corinthians 15:5)

• To the disciples fishing at the Sea of Galilee. (John 21:1-3)

• To the eleven apostles, and to above 500 brethren at once, at an appointed place in Galilee. (1 Corinthians 15:6)

• To James, but we are not informed about the circumstances. (1 Corinthians 15:7)

• To the apostles just before the ascension. They accompanied Christ from Jerusalem to Mount Olivet, and there they saw Him ascend “till a cloud received Him out of their sight.” (Mark 16:19); (Luke 24:50-52); (Acts 1:4-10)

• To Paul at Damascus.  He has communicated an appearance of the risen Savior. (Acts 9:3-9, 17); (1 Corinthians 15:8; 9:1)

Our Lord conversed often with His disciples. They touched Him (Matthew 28:9); (Luke 24:39); (John 20:27), and He ate bread with them. (Luke 24:42-43); (John 21:12-13)
