Appearance to the Disciples


Luke 24:35-48The two disciples recounted what had taken place on the way and how Jesus was made known to them in the breaking of the bread.While they were still speaking about this, He stood in their midst and said to them, “Peace be with you.” But they were startled and terrified and thought that they were seeing a ghost. Then He said to them, “Why are you troubled? And why do questions arise in your hearts? Look at My hands and My feet, that it is I Myself. Touch Me and see, because a ghost does not have flesh and bones as you can see I have.” And as He said this, He showed them His hands and His feet. While they were still incredulous for joy and were amazed, He asked them, “Have you anything here to eat?” They gave Him a piece of baked fish; He took it and ate it in front of them.He said to them, “These are My words that I spoke to you while I was still with you, that everything written about Me in the law of Moses and in the prophets and psalms must be fulfilled.” Then He opened their minds to understand the Scriptures. And He said to them, “Thus it is written that the Messiah would suffer and rise from the dead on the third day and that repentance, for the forgiveness of sins, would be preached in His name to all the nations, beginning from Jerusalem. You are witnesses of these things.”We are to be taken, blessed, broken, and given“Have you anything here to eat?” The risen Jesus asks the startled and terrified disciples. They give Him a piece of baked fish; He takes it and eats it in front of them. Earlier in Luke (24:30), Jesus breaks bread with two of the disciples at Emmaus. And in John (21:12), Jesus cooks some fish on a grill and invites the disciples, “Come and have breakfast!”It comes as no surprise that meal sharing marks the appearances of the risen Lord. In His public ministry, Jesus is known for His table fellowship. He likens the kingdom of God to a wedding banquet. He works His first sign, in John, at a wedding in Cana, turning water into wine and saving the newly married couple from embarrassment.
