Luke 24

36As they were talking about these things, Jesus himself stood among them, and said to them, “Peace to you!”
37But they were startled and frightened and thought they saw a spirit.
38And he said to them, “Why are you troubled, and why do doubts arise in your hearts?
39See my hands and my feet, that it is I myself. Touch me, and see. For a spirit does not have flesh and bones as you see that I have.”
40And when he had said this, he showed them his hands and his feet.
41And while they still disbelieved for joy and were marveling, he said to them, “Have you anything here to eat?”
42They gave him a piece of broiled fish,
43and he took it and ate before them.
44Then 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 the Prophets and the Psalms must be fulfilled.”
45Then he opened their minds to understand the Scriptures,
46and said to them, “Thus it is written, that the Christ should suffer and on the third day rise from the dead,
47and that repentance and forgiveness of sins should be proclaimed in his name to all nations, beginning from Jerusalem.
48You are witnesses of these things.
49And behold, I am sending the promise of my Father upon you. But stay in the city until you are clothed with power from on high.”
