Jesus Appears; Learning Under Jesus

Thomas had left the room, and we locked the door behind him. Jesus wasn't in his tomb. In fact, reports had been coming in that he'd been spotted. Mary had seen him. We locked the door in case the temple authorities found us. I looked at the fading daylight out the window. Then I heard an exclamation and turned to look. Jesus was standing in the middle of the room; the door still locked. He smiled and with a bit of a laugh, said, "Peace be with you!"
