After the resurrection
They who earliest saw Jesus after the resurrection
and beheld the final proof of all that he had taught,
misconstrued that event. Even his disciples
at first called him a spirit, ghost, or spectre,
for they believed his body to be dead. His reply was:
"Spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have."
The reappearing of Jesus was not the return of a spirit.
He presented the same body that he had before his crucifixion,
and so glorified the supremacy of Mind over
Jesus' students, not sufficiently advanced fully to understand
their Master's triumph, did not perform many
wonderful works, until they saw him after his crucifixion
and learned that he had not died. This convinced them
of the truthfulness of all that he had taught.
