  1. 9/12/12, See, S.
    1) If that would happen, I would let Jesus meet Pharisees because they’re the ones that condemned him.
    2) What was common that Jesus resurrected and came to them, and they didn’t recognize Him at first.
    3) The big idea is that Jesus resurrected because he was supposed to be dead as He still talked appeared to His people.

  2. 9.13.12, Villaruel, Marc.

    1) Other than to the Apostles, if I were to rewrite who Jesus would appear to, I’d choose Jesus to appear in front of the Pharisees and all those who condemned Him. Those who did not believe before will become truly God-fearing the moment of when it is confirmed that Jesus’s body is gone. Jesus would preach one more time and leave.

    2) One common instance in the resurrection narratives is that Jesus would not show his true form at first but he would preach until the Apostles would believe that he is flesh.

    3) We can say that the resurrection could be nothing less than an act by a divine being. Jesus was beaten, flogged, and killed. If he were just knocked unconscious, he wouldn’t have been able to leave his tomb, but since he had left his being mortal, he was able to appear and disappear even with the flesh of his beaten body.

    1. I would choose to have him appear to the same people he originally did. Jesus’ decision appear to the people he decided to appear to resulted in his resurrection being technically indisputable. Also because those were the people that truly stuck with him and showed them their full support and love. I feel that they deserved to see him before he left most.

    2. It seemed that the people that witnessed him alive again had all forgotten about him or doubted that it was him/he had truly resurrected from the dead. I would understand because they all watched him hang on the cross and pierced in the chest.

    3. The resurrection has proven to be something indisputable in the Christian community. Regardless of whether you are Christian or not, in the supposition that Christ did exist, that event could not have not happened.
