Shortly after Jesus’s resurrection, He appeared multiple times to many different people. We have eyewitness evidence of the fact that He rose from the dead. Jesus prepares His disciples for what’s to come, instructing them to stay in the city until the Holy Spirit comes upon them. From this story, we learn several things about both God and our role as believers.
1. There is evidence of Christ’s resurrection. Most people today believe that Jesus lived and died—that He is a confirmed historical figure. However, the resurrection is what most people have trouble. We see that Jesus appears to many people over the course of 40 days, so that even though we still need to have faith, there is confirmed evidence of His resurrection.
