E100: Week 14: Death and resurrection

  1. I agree that the visionary experiences of Jesus, which some of thetwelve disciples had, “turned them around” to believe that their earthly leader had risen to a preeminent place in Heaven. These visionary experiences were probably not experienced by all of the disciples, however, which accounts for Matthew’s explanation that “some doubted” – and the subsequent narratives in Acts only involve a few of the twelve. But it is a fairly safe conclusion that at least some disciples had a visionary experience of the resurrected and glorified Jesus in Galilee, which stimulated the new religion.
