Who Walked With Jesus After Resurrection?

After Jesus’ resurrection, many people wondered what happened to him. Did he really rise from the dead and if so, who saw him?

The Bible tells us that several people walked with Jesus after his resurrection. Let’s take a closer look at who they were.

The Women at the Tomb

On the morning of Jesus’ resurrection, three women went to his tomb to anoint his body with spices. They were Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome. When they arrived, they found that the stone had been rolled away from the tomb’s entrance and that Jesus’ body was missing.

Suddenly, an angel appeared before them and told them that Jesus had risen from the dead. He instructed them to go tell the disciples what they had seen. As they left the tomb, they met Jesus himself who greeted them and confirmed what the angel had said.

The Disciples

Jesus also appeared to his disciples after his resurrection. In fact, he made several appearances to them over a period of 40 days before he ascended into heaven.

One of his first appearances was on the evening of Resurrection Sunday. The disciples were gathered in a locked room when suddenly Jesus appeared among them. They were frightened at first but then overjoyed when they realized it was really him.

Jesus showed them his hands and feet which still bore the wounds from his crucifixion. He also ate with them to demonstrate that he was not a ghost but truly alive.

Thomas

One disciple was not present during this first appearance – Thomas (also known as Doubting Thomas). When he heard about it later, he refused to believe it until he saw Jesus for himself.

A week later, Jesus appeared again while Thomas was present. He invited Thomas to touch his wounds so that he would believe. Thomas then declared, “My Lord and my God!”

Other Appearances

Jesus also appeared to several other people after his resurrection. He walked with two disciples on the road to Emmaus, but they did not recognize him until he broke bread with them.

He also appeared to Peter and then later to a group of 500 people at once. These appearances were all meant to prove that he had truly risen from the dead.

Conclusion

In conclusion, several people walked with Jesus after his resurrection. They included Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, Salome, the disciples (including Thomas), two disciples on the road to Emmaus, Peter, and a group of 500 people. These appearances were crucial in proving that Jesus had truly risen from the dead and fulfilled his promise to come back to life after three days.
