The resurrection of Jesus

The resurrected Jesus appears to His disciples.
It was early in the morning on the third day since Jesus had been crucified and buried in a tomb. The tomb was guarded by soldiers. <br/>(Matthew 28:1). <br/>The Watch Over the Tomb - James Tissot - Brooklyn Museum. – Slide 1
Suddenly there was a violent earthquake, as an angel of the Lord came down from heaven and rolled back the stone and sat on it. His appearance was like lightning, and his clothes were white as snow. The guards were so afraid of him that they shook and became like dead men. <br/>(Matthew 28:1-4). <br/>The Resurrection - James Tissot - Brooklyn Museum. – Slide 2
Just after sunrise, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, Joanna and Salome, brought spices to anoint Jesus’ body. <br/>When they arrived they saw that the large stone across the tomb entrance had been rolled away. <br/>(Mark 16:1-4). <br/>Mary Magdalene and the Women at the Tomb- James Tissot - Brooklyn Museum. – Slide 3
A young man dressed in a white robe said, ‘Don’t be alarmed. You are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, who was crucified. He has risen! He is not here. See the place where they laid Him. Go, tell His disciples. Remember how He told you, “The Son of Man must be delivered over to the hands of sinners, be crucified and on the third day be raised again.”’ <br/>(Mark 16:5-7, Luke 24:1-10). <br/>The Angel Seated on the Stone of the Tomb - James Tissot - Brooklyn Museum. – Slide 4
So the women hurried away from the tomb, afraid yet filled with joy, and ran to tell His disciples. Suddenly Jesus met them. ‘Greetings,’ He said. They fell down before Him in worship. <br/>(Matthew 28:8-9). <br/>Jesus Appears to the Women - James Tissot - Brooklyn Museum. – Slide 5
Now Mary Magdalene had stood outside the tomb crying. As she wept, she bent over to look into the tomb and saw two angels in white, seated where Jesus’ body had been, one at the head and the other at the foot. They asked her, ‘Why are you crying?’ <br/>‘They have taken my Lord away,’ she said, ‘and I don’t know where they have put Him.’ <br/>(John 20:11-13). <br/>Mary Magdalene Questions the Angels in the Tomb - James Tissot - Brooklyn Museum. – Slide 6
At this, she turned around and saw someone there, but she did not realise that it was Jesus. <br/>He asked her, ‘Why are you crying? Who is it you are looking for?’ <br/>Thinking He was the gardener, she said, ‘Sir, if you have carried Him away, tell me where you have put Him, and I will get Him.’ <br/>(John 20:14-15). <br/>Jesus Appears to Mary Magdalene - James Tissot - Brooklyn Museum. – Slide 7
Jesus said to her, ‘Mary.’ <br/>She turned toward Him and cried out in Aramaic, ‘Rabboni!’ (which means ‘Teacher’). <br/>Jesus said, ‘Do not hold on to me, for I have not yet ascended to the Father. Go instead to my brothers and tell them, ‘I am ascending to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God.’ <br/>(John 20:16-17). <br/>Touch me not - James Tissot - Brooklyn Museum. – Slide 8
The women rushed to tell the eleven disciples what had happened. But they did not believe the women, because their words seemed to them like nonsense. <br/>(Luke 24:9-11). <br/>Mary Magdalene Runs to Tell the Apostles that the Body of Jesus is No Longer in the Tomb - James Tissot - Brooklyn Museum. – Slide 9
Peter and John started running to the tomb. John reached the tomb first. Simon Peter came along behind him and went straight inside. They saw the strips of burial linen and the cloth that had been wrapped around Jesus’ head but His body was missing. <br/>(John 20:3-10). <br/>Peter and John Run to the Sepulcher - James Tissot - Brooklyn Museum. – Slide 10
That same day two disciples were going to a nearby village called Emmaus. Jesus came and started talking with them but they did not recognize Him. <br/>Beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, He explained to them what was said in all the Scriptures about the suffering, death and resurrection of the Messiah. <br/>(Luke 24:13-27). <br/>Pilgrims of Emmaus on the Road - James Tissot - Brooklyn Museum. – Slide 11
When they got to Emmaus they invited Him to stay with them. The moment Jesus took bread, gave thanks, broke it and gave it to them, they immediately recognized it was Jesus. Immediately Jesus disappeared from their sight. <br/>The two men rushed back to Jerusalem to tell the other disciples. <br/>(Luke 24:28-35). <br/>He Vanished from their Sight - James Tissot - Brooklyn Museum. – Slide 12
That evening when the disciples were together, with the doors locked for fear of the Jewish leaders, Jesus came and stood among them. He said, ‘Peace be with you!’ Then, He showed them His hands and side. The disciples were overjoyed. <br/>(John 20:19-20). <br/>Appearance of Christ at the Cenacle - James Tissot - Brooklyn Museum. – Slide 13
Now Thomas was not with the disciples when Jesus appeared. When they told him, ‘We have seen the Lord!’ he did not believe them.  <br/>‘Unless I see the nail marks in His hands and put my hand into His side, I will not believe,’ he said. <br/>A week later when the disciples were meeting in a locked room Jesus appeared again saying, ‘Peace be with you.’  <br/>He told Thomas to put his finger into the wounds in His hands and side. <br/>‘My Lord and my God!’ he gasped. <br/>Jesus told him, ‘Because you have seen me, you have believed. Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.’ <br/>(John 20:24-28). <br/>The Disbelief of Thomas - James Tissot - Brooklyn Museum. – Slide 14
Some time later, seven of the disciples were fishing in Galilee. Early in the morning, Jesus stood on the shore, and shouted, ‘Friends, haven’t you any fish?’ <br/>They did not recognise Jesus and replied. ‘No.’ <br/>Jesus told them to throw their net on the right side of the boat. When they did, they were unable to haul the net in because of the large number of fish. <br/>(John 21:1-6). <br/>Christ Appears on the Shore of Lake Tiberias - James Tissot - Brooklyn Museum. – Slide 15
John said to Peter, ‘It is the Lord!’ Peter immediately wrapped his outer garment around him, jumped into the water and swam to Jesus. The disciple followed in the boat. <br/>(John 21:7-8). <br/>Peter Alerted by John to the Presence of the Lord - James Tissot - Brooklyn Museum. – Slide 16
Jesus invited them to have a cooked breakfast of bread and fish. <br/>All the disciples knew it was Jesus and it was the third time they had seen Him alive. <br/>(John 21:9-14). <br/>Meal of Our Lord and the Apostles - James Tissot - Brooklyn Museum. – Slide 17
After they had eaten Jesus spoke with Peter asking three times if he loved Him. Three times Peter replied that he did. <br/>Jesus responded each time by telling Peter to feed His lambs and sheep. <br/>(John 21:15-25) <br/>Feed my Lambs - James Tissot - Brooklyn Museum. – Slide 18
