Passion of the Christ - JESUS APPEARS to OTHERS

This image depicts “Supper at Emmaus,” one of Caravaggio’s best-known works which he created in 1601.  An oil-on-canvas, which measures 141 x 196 cm (55.51 x 77.17 inches), it is currently owned by the National Gallery, in London. Image online via the Web Gallery of Art.


After his death, the New Testament records that Jesus appeared to His disciples several times. He also appeared to two men walking along the road which leads to the village of Emmaus, about seven miles from Jerusalem.

Some of the people closest to Jesus doubted He was really alive. After all, they had watched Him die. How could he possibly be alive?

Some of the doubters (like Thomas) saw Jesus again:

They were startled and frightened, thinking they had seen a ghost. He said to them, 'Why are you troubled, and why do doubts rise in your minds? Look at my hands and my feet. It is I myself! Touch me and see; a ghost does not have flesh and bones, as you see I have.'
