After the Lord Jesus rose from the dead, He remained on earth for forty days. His friends got to see Him again.
We can only begin to imagine what it was like for the disciples to see Christ after He rose from the dead. When we get to heaven, please God, we will see Him, too.
In the meantime, we can consider some of the things that ran through the minds and hearts of the disciples when they saw their Master risen from the dead…
When they saw the Lord, the disciples became perfectly clear on some important invisible facts.
One: The death of the body does not mean that the soul is destroyed. The soul lives on. When we die, we meet the justice of God, and He vindicates all truth.
Two: The separation of the soul from the body which occurs at death is not permanent. The power of God united our souls and bodies in the first place. He can re-unite soul and body after death.
