Read Luke 24:36b-48

The four-gospel writers tell us that when the Risen Christ appeared to His disciples, most of the time they did not immediately recognize Him. You have to wonder then, what did he look like? He must have looked like a Jewish man of that time period, because in John chapter 20, Mary Magdalene looked right into His face and spoke to Him but thought he was an ordinary person, like the caretaker for the garden of Jewish tombs (John 20: 14-15). Read 1 Corinthians 15:35-49—What does this scripture tell you about the difference between the human body and the body changed by resurrection?

  • Since Jesus was not immediately recognizable in His resurrected body, is it possible that we have “seen the Lord” in our world today and not recognized Him?
  • In Luke 24:15-16, the two disciples did not recognize the Risen Christ walking beside them because “Their eyes were kept from recognizing him” (v.15).  Do you think that the Risen Christ is among us today, but our eyes are kept from recognizing Him?
