(KJV.) ST. LUKE 24:39
(39) Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have.
BELIEVE IT OR NOT!
Christ is risen from the tomb as he predicted, appeared to some of his disciples, yet many were doubtful of the authenticity of his resurrection, and believed not the witnesse's narratives that he has risen from the dead as prophesied; for the fact that they saw his sufferings from scourging, crucifixion, and maybe burial as well; therefore, after Jesus rose again from the dead, appeared to many people, among them were two of his disciples, who went a day journey to a village called Emmaus, about threescore furlongs, as they walked and talked about the things that transpired, miraculously, Jesus joined them in the conversation, but their eyes were blindfolded to perceived his presence with them,... cf Luke 24:13-53; until he was ready to reveal himself, reminded them of the reasons behind his dilemma, opened up their eyes after the conversation was almost over, gave them the power to understand the scriptures; therefore, Jesus Christ is the giver of power; ask, and it shall be given to you; seek ye shall find, knock, and the door shall be opened unto you; cf. Matthew 7:7; without him, we can do nothing of ourselves, cf, John 15:5.
Beloved; he also gave them the true understanding of his mission, saying, Thus it is written, and thus it behoved Christ to suffer, to rise from the dead the third day; that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem, cf.verses 46-49; therefore, this is the mission for all believers to fulfill; let us come together in unity, do the will of Jesus with fear and tremblings, Christ is risen indeed, he is coming back again soon to receive us into life forever and evermore. Come unto him with labors and heavy laden, have rest for your soul, Matthew 11:28. Let us continue to love one another as ourselves! Peace and Love be unto you! Amen and Amen!
