Believing without Seeing ! Eyewitnesses of the Resurrected Jesus

John 20:19-29; 1 Corinthians 15:6

In 1998, a Congressman announced to his collegues in the House of Representatives that comedian Bob Hope had died. Within seconds, media outlets across the world rushed to prepare tributes to the entertainer. Bob Hope's daughter Linda had quite a different perspective.She immediately phoned news agencies to deny the report. At her home in Pasadena, Califoria, Linda was watching her father eat breakfast.

The women in the passage in John had a different perspective on Jesus's death. It hard to imagine the emotions of the women who saw Jesus after his resurrection. They had witnessed his slow, agonizing death on the cross. Some of them had watched Joseph of Arimathea wrap his body in linen and place it in the tomb. When Jesus first appeared to the women, they must have wondered- were they dreaming now, or had the past few days just been a nightmare ? Jesus came to them in a body that they could touch, yet he could appear and disappear  at will. The women's ecstasy must have exceeded anything they had ever experience, a deep joy that would stay with them for the rest of their lives.
