Pondering the Scriptures Sunday #41

Some time after Jesus Christ's resurrection, He appeared to his disciples and said the following:

"And as they thus spake, Jesus himself stood in the midst of them, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you. But they were terrified and affrighted, and supposed that they had seen a spirit. And he said unto them, Why are ye troubled? and why do thoughts arise in your hearts? Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have."  Luke 24: 36-39

This is telling of his postmortal appearance ... Christ appears with a body of flesh and bones.  Why is this significant?  Well, it gives us a description of what our state will be when we too will be resurrected ... our spirit united with our body. 

Happy sabbath day!
