John 20:14 And when she had said this, she TURNED herself BACK, and SAW JESUS standing, and did not know that it was Jesus.

John 20:15 Jesus said to her, Woman, why do you weep? whom do you seek? She, supposing him to be the gardener, said to him, Sir, if you have borne him hence, tell me where you have laid him, and I will take him away.

John 20:16 Jesus said to her, Mary. She turned herself, and said to him, Rabboni; which is to say, Master.

Luke 24:14 And they talked together of all these things which had happened.

Luke 24:15 And it came to pass, that, while they communed [together] and reasoned, Jesus himself drew near, and went with them.

Luke 24:16 But their eyes were holden that they should not know him.

Luke 24:17 And he said to them, What manner of communications [are] these that you have one to another, as you walk, and are sad?

Luke 24:18 And the one of them, whose name was CLEOPAS, answering said to him, Are you only a stranger in Jerusalem, and don’t know the things which have happened there in these days?

Luke 24:19 And he said to them, What things? And they said to him, Concerning Jesus of Nazareth, which was a prophet mighty in deed and word before God and all the people:

Luke 24:20 And how the chief priests and our rulers delivered him to be condemned to death, and have crucified him.

Luke 24:21 But we trusted that it had been he which should have redeemed Israel: and beside all this, today is the third day since these things were done.

Luke 24:22 Yea, and certain women also of our company made us astonished, which were early at the tomb;

Luke 24:23 And when they found NOT his BODY, they came, saying, that they had also seen a vision of angels, which said that HE WAS ALIVE.

Luke 24:30 And it came to pass, as he sat at meat with them, he took bread, and blessed [it], and brake, and gave to them.

Luke 24:31 And their eyes were opened, and they knew him; and he VANISHED out of their sight.

Luke 24:32 And they said one to another, Did not our heart burn within us, while he talked with us by the way, and while he opened to us the scriptures?

Luke 20:19b Jesus came and stood in the midst, and said to them, Peace [be] to you.

Luke 24:37 But they were terrified and afraid, and supposed that they had seen a spirit. [ghost]

Luke 24:38 And he said to them, Why are you troubled? and why do thoughts arise in your hearts?

Luke 24:39 BEHOLD 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 ME HAVE.

Luke 24:40 And when he had spoken this, he showed them [his] hands and [his] feet.

John 20:20 And when he had so said, he showed to them [his] hands and his side. Then were the disciples glad, when they saw the Lord.

John 20:22 And when he had said this, HE BREATHED ON THEM, and said to them, RECEIVE YOU THE HOLY GHOST:

Jesus Asks For Food

Luke 24:41 And while they yet believed not for joy, and wondered, he said to them, Have you here any meat?

Matthew 28:17 And when they saw him, they WORSHIPED him: but some doubted.

Luke 24:42 And they gave him a piece of a broiled fish, and of an honeycomb.

Luke 24:43 And he took [it], and did eat before them.

Jesus Teaches

Luke 24:44 And he said to them, These [are] the words which I spoke to you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and [in] the prophets, and [in] the psalms, concerning me.

Luke 24:45 Then opened he their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures,

Luke 24:46 And said to them, Thus it is written, and thus it behoved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day:

Luke 24:47 And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.

Luke 24:48 And you are witnesses of these things.

Luke 24:49 And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry you in the city of Jerusalem, until you are endued with power from on high.

Mark 16:14 [When] he appeared to the ELEVEN as they sat at meat, [he] upbraided them with their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they believed not them which had seen him after he was risen.

Mark 16:15 And he said to them, Go into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.

Mark 16:16 He that believes and is baptized will be saved; but he that believes not will be damned.

Mark 16:17 And these signs will follow them that believe; In my name will they cast out devils; they will speak with new tongues;

Mark 16:18 They will take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it will not hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.

Matthew 28:18 And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, ALL POWER IS GIVEN TO ME IN HEAVEN AND IN EARTH.

Matthew 28:19 Go therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:

Matthew 28:20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, look, I am with you always, [even] to the END OF THE WORLD. Amen.

Thomas Touches Jesus 8 Days later

John 20:24 But Thomas, one of the twelve, called Didymus, was not with them when Jesus came.

John 20:25 The other disciples therefore said to him, We have seen the Lord. But he said to them, Except I will see in his hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and thrust my hand into his side, I will not believe.

John 20:26 And after eight days again his disciples were within, and Thomas with them: [then] came Jesus, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, Peace [be] to you.

John 20:27 Then said he to Thomas, Reach [out with] your finger, and behold my hands; and reach [out] your hand, and thrust [it] into my side: and be not faithless, but believing.

John 20:28 And Thomas answered and said to him, My Lord and my God.

John 20:29 Jesus said to him, Thomas, because you have seen me, you have believed: blessed [are] they that have not seen, and [yet] have believed.

John 20:30 And many other signs truly did Jesus in the presence of his disciples, which are not written in THIS book:

John 20:31 But these are written, that you might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing you might have LIFE THROUGH HIS NAME.

Jesus Appears After Resurrection at the Sea

John 21:1 After these things Jesus showed himself again to the disciples at the sea of Tiberias; and on this wise showed he [himself].

John 21:2 There were together Simon Peter, and Thomas called Didymus, and Nathanael of Cana in Galilee, and the [sons] of Zebedee, and two other of his disciples.

John 21:3 Simon Peter said to them, I’m going fishing. They say to him, We also go with you. They went forth, and entered into a ship immediately; and that night they caught nothing.

John 21:4 But when the morning was now come, Jesus stood on the shore: but the disciples knew not that it was Jesus.

John 21:5 Then Jesus said to them, Children, have you any meat? They answered him, No.

John 21:6 And he said to them, Cast the net on the right side of the ship, and you will find. They cast therefore, and now they were not able to draw it for the multitude of fishes.

John 21:7 Therefore that disciple whom Jesus loved said to Peter, It is the Lord. Now when Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he girt [his] fisher’s coat [to him], (for he was naked,) and did cast himself into the sea.

John 21:8 And the other disciples came in a little ship; (for they were not far from land, but as it were two hundred cubits,) dragging the net with fishes.

John 21:9 As soon then as they were come to land, they saw a fire of coals there, and fish laid thereon, and bread.

John 21:10 Jesus said to them, Bring of the fish which you have now caught.

John 21:11 Simon Peter went up, and drew the net to land full of great fishes, an hundred and fifty and three: and for all there were so many, yet was not the net broken.

John 21:12 Jesus said to them, Come [and] dine. And none of the disciples dared not ask him, Who are you? knowing that it was the Lord.

John 21:13 Jesus then came, and took bread, and gave them, and fish likewise.

John 21:14 This is now the THIRD TIME that Jesus SHOWED HIMSELF to his disciples, AFTER that he was RISEN from the dead.

John 21:15 So when they had dined, Jesus said to Simon Peter, Simon, [son] of Jonas, Do you love me more than these? He said to him, Yea, Lord; you knowest that I love you. He said to him, Feed my lambs.

John 21:16 He said to him again the second time, Simon, [son] of Jonas, Do you love me? He said to him, Yea, Lord; you know that I love you. He said to him, Feed my sheep.

Acts 1:9 And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight.

Acts 1:10 And while they looked steadfastly toward heaven as he went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel;

Acts 1:11 Which also said, You men of Galilee, why stand you gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, will so come in like manner as you have seen him go into heaven.

Acts 1:12 Then returned they to Jerusalem from the mount called Olivet, which is from Jerusalem a sabbath day’s journey.

Paul Confirms Over 500 See Jesus After Resurrection

1 Corinthians 9:1 Am I not an apostle? am I not free? have I not SEEN Jesus Christ our Lord? are not you my work in the Lord?

1 Corinthians 9:2 If I am not an apostle to others, yet doubtless I am to you: for the seal of my apostleship are you in the Lord.

1 Corinthians 15:5 And that he was SEEN of Cephas, then of the TWELVE:

1 Corinthians 15:7 After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles.

1 Corinthians 15:10 But by the grace of God I am what I am: and his grace which [was bestowed] upon me was not in vain; but I labored more abundantly than they all: yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me.

Paul Changed at Damascus After Seeing Jesus

Acts 9:1 And Saul, yet breathing out threatenings and slaughter against the disciples of the Lord, went to the high priest,

Acts 9:2 And desired of him letters to Damascus to the synagogues, that if he found any of this way, whether they were men or women, he might bring them bound to Jerusalem.

Acts 9:3 And as he journeyed, he came near Damascus: and suddenly there shined round about him a light from heaven:

Acts 9:4 And he fell to the earth, and heard a voice saying to him, Saul, Saul, why do you persecute me?

Acts 9:5 And he said, Who are you, Lord? And the Lord said, I am Jesus whom you persecute: [it is] hard for you to kick against the pricks.

Acts 9:6 And he trembling and astonished said, Lord, what will you have me to do? And the Lord [said] to him, Arise, and go into the city, and it will be told you what you must do.

Acts 9:7 And the men which journeyed with him stood speechless, hearing a voice, but seeing no man.

Acts 9:8 And Saul arose from the earth; and when his eyes were opened, he saw no man: but they led him by the hand, and brought [him] into Damascus.

Paul Sees Jesus Near Damascus

Acts 22:1 Men, brethren, and fathers, hear you my defense [which I make] now to you.

Acts 22:2 (And when they heard that he spoke in the Hebrew tongue to them, they kept the more silence: and he said,)

Acts 22:3 I am verily a man [which am] a Jew, born in Tarsus, [a city] in Cilicia, yet brought up in this city at the feet of Gamaliel, [and] taught according to the perfect manner of the law of the fathers, and was zealous toward God, as you all are this day.

Acts 22:4 And I persecuted this way to the death, binding and delivering into prisons both men and women.

Acts 22:5 As also the high priest doth bear me witness, and all the estate of the elders: from whom also I received letters to the brethren, and went to Damascus, to bring them which were there bound to Jerusalem, for to be punished.

Acts 22:6 And it came to pass, that, as I made my journey, and was come nigh to Damascus about noon, suddenly there shone from heaven a great light round about me.

Acts 22:7 And I fell to the ground, and heard a VOICE saying to me, Saul, Saul, why do you persecute me?

Acts 22:8 And I answered, Who are you, Lord? And he said to me, I am Jesus of Nazareth, whom you persecute.

Acts 22:9 And they that were with me saw indeed the light, and were afraid; but they heard not the voice of him that spoke to me.

Acts 22:10 And I said, What will I do, Lord? And the Lord said to me, Arise, and go into Damascus; and there it will be told you of all things which are appointed for you to do.

Acts 22:11 And when I COULD NOT SEE FOR THE GLORY OF THAT LIGHT, being led by the hand of them that were with me, I came into Damascus.

Acts 22:12 And one Ananias, a devout man according to the law, having a good report of all the Jews which dwelt [there],

Acts 22:13 Came to me, and stood, and said to me, Brother Saul, receive your sight. And the same hour I looked up upon him.

Acts 22:14 And he said, The God of our fathers has chosen you, that you should know his will, and see that Just One, and should hear the voice of his mouth.

Acts 22:15 For you will be his witness to all men of what you hast seen and heard.

Acts 22:16 And now why do you tarry? arise, and be baptized, and wash away your sins, calling on the name of the Lord.

Acts 22:17 And it came to pass, that, when I was come again to Jerusalem, even while I prayed in the temple, I was in a trance;

Acts 22:18 And saw him saying to me, Make haste, and get quickly out of Jerusalem: for they will not receive your testimony concerning me.

Acts 26:10 Which thing I also did in Jerusalem: and many of the saints did I shut up in prison, having received authority from the chief priests; and when they were put to death, I gave my voice against [them].

Acts 26:11 And I punished them oft in every synagogue, and compelled [them] to blaspheme; and being exceedingly mad against them, I persecuted [them] even to strange cities.

Paul Tells His Story Again

Acts 26:12 Whereupon as I went to Damascus with authority and commission from the chief priests,

Acts 26:13 At midday, O king, I saw in the way a light from heaven, above the brightness of the sun, shining round about me and them which journeyed with me.

Acts 26:14 And when we were all fallen to the earth, I heard a voice speaking to me, and saying in the Hebrew tongue, Saul, Saul, why do you persecute me? [it is] hard for you to kick against the pricks.

Acts 26:15 And I said, Who are you, Lord? And he said, I am Jesus whom you persecute.

Acts 26:16 But rise, and stand upon your feet: for I have appeared to you for this purpose, to make you a minister and a witness both of these things which you hast seen, and of those things in the which I will appear to you;

Acts 26:17 Delivering you from the people, and [from] the Gentiles, to whom now I send you,

Acts 26:18 To open their eyes, [and] to turn [them] from darkness to light, and [from] the power of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me.

Acts 26:19 Whereupon, O king Agrippa, I was not disobedient to the heavenly vision:

Acts 26:20 But showed first to them of Damascus, and at Jerusalem, and throughout all the coasts of Judaea, and [then] to the Gentiles, that they should repent and turn to God, and do works meet for repentance.
