They were frightened and afraid, thinking they were seeing a spirit.
He said to them, "Why are you troubled and why do doubts arise in your hearts?
See my hands and my feet. I am myself! Touch me and see; a spirit has no flesh and no bones, as you see I have. "
Having said this, he showed them his hands and feet.
And because they did not believe yet, so full were they of joy and wonder, he asked them, "Do you have something to eat here?"
They gave him a piece of roasted fish,
and he ate it in their presence.
And he said to them, "This is what I told you while I was still with you. It was necessary that all that was written about me in the Law of Moses, the Prophets and the Psalms be fulfilled."
And he opened their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures.
And he said to them, "It is written that Christ was to suffer and rise from the dead on the third day,
and that in his name repentance for the forgiveness of sins would be preached to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.
You are witnesses of these things.
I send you the promise of my Father; but remain in the city until they are clothed with the power from on high. "
Having led them to the vicinity of Bethany, Jesus raised his hands and blessed them.
While still blessing them, he left them and was raised to heaven.
So they worshiped him and returned to Jerusalem with great joy.
And they stood continually in the temple, praising God.
