Jesus himself stood among them and said, “Peace be with you!” 37 They were terrified and afraid. They thought they were seeing a ghost. 38 He said to them, “Why are you startled? Why are doubts arising in your hearts? 39 Look at my hands and my feet. It’s really me! Touch me and see, for a ghost doesn’t have flesh and bones like you see I have.” 40 As he said this, he showed them his hands and feet. 41 Because they were wondering and questioning in the midst of their happiness, he said to them, “Do you have anything to eat?” 42 They gave him a piece of baked fish. 43 Taking it, he ate it in front of them. 44 Jesus said to them, “These are my words that I spoke to you while I was still with you—that everything written about me in the Law from Moses, the Prophets, and the Psalms must be fulfilled.” 45 Then he opened their minds to understand the scriptures. 46 He said to them, “This is what is written: the Christ will suffer and rise from the dead on the third day, 47 and a change of heart and life for the forgiveness of sins must be preached in his name to all nations, beginning from Jerusalem. 48 You are witnesses of these things. (Luke 24:36b-48, CEB)
The disciples met on the shore and Jesus was there after the resurrection. And in order to show them that he was not a ghost he asked them for food. We all know a ghost can not eat.
This was to show the disciples all that Jesus had told them was true and that he was God. And because of this and everything they saw for the time they were with Jesus, they are witnesses to the world.
We are all witnesses to who Jesus was, is and will be, and we are to go into the world and share that truth.
Know that Jesus wasn’t a ghost and the promises are truth.
Love People. Love God.
