Who Am I…
Our Father presented Himself before the Apostles, villagers as far away as seven miles and the women who arrived first at the tomb. All of these people, eye witnesses to the resurrected Christ. Who am I to question two villages of people? Who am I to question the King of Kings when the people He meets already speak of Him as Son of God as being resurrected? If they know and understand then who am I to question?
If the Apostles throughout the remainder of their lives are imprisoned, tortured and killed all the while saying they can not refute what they saw, what they heard and what they experienced. Who am I to question? Let me repeat that – they were imprisoned, tortured and up to the time they were killed by their enemies, each of them said I WILL NOT and CAN NOT say that something did not happen when it happened around me and to me.
Luke 24 NKJV
13 Now behold, two of them were traveling that same day to a village called Emmaus, which was seven miles from Jerusalem.
14 And they talked together of all these things which had happened.
15 So it was, while they conversed and reasoned, that Jesus Himself drew near and went with them.
16 But their eyes were restrained, so that they did not know Him.
17 And He said to them, “What kind of conversation is this that you have with one another as you walk and are sad?”
18 Then the one whose name was Cleopas answered and said to Him, “Are You the only stranger in Jerusalem, and have You not known the things which happened there in these days?”
19 And He said to them, “What things?” So they said to Him, “The things concerning Jesus of Nazareth, who was a Prophet mighty in deed and word before God and all the people,
20 and how the chief priests and our rulers delivered Him to be condemned to death, and crucified Him.
21 But we were hoping that it was He who was going to redeem Israel. Indeed, besides all this, today is the third day since these things happened.
22 Yes, and certain women of our company, who arrived at the tomb early, astonished us.
23 When they did not find His body, they came saying that they had also seen a vision of angels who said He was alive.
24 And certain of those who were with us went to the tomb and found it just as the women had said; but Him they did not see.”
