The Risen Jesus - Luke 24, 35-43

Posted on 8th May, 2021

 

The risen Jesus appears to His disciples

 

'Then they told what had happened on the road, and how he was known to them in the breaking of the bread.  As they were saying this, Jesus himself stood among them.  But they were startled and frightened, and supposed that they saw a spirit.  And he said to them “Why are you troubled, and why do questionings rise in your hearts?  See my hands and my feet, that it is I myself; handle me, and see; for a spirit has not flesh and bones as you see that I have.”  And while they still disbelieved for joy, and wondered, he said to them, “Have you anything here to eat?”  They gave him a piece of broiled fish, and he took it and ate before them.'

 

In this passage St. Luke puts the stress on the disciples’ difficulty in accepting the miracle of the Resurrection, despite the angels’ testimony to the women (cf. Mt. 28:5-7, etc.) and despite the witness of those who had already seen the risen Lord (cf. Mt 28:9-10, etc.)  In the following parts of this tract we will meditate on the Risen Jesus, both God and man.
