24:37 They were startled and frightened, thinking they saw a ghost.
24:38 He said to them, "Why are you troubled, and why do doubts rise in your minds?
24:39 Look at my hands and my feet. It is I myself! Touch me and see; a ghost does not have flesh and bones, as you see I have."
24:40 When he had said this, he showed them his hands and feet.
24:41 And while they still did not believe it because of joy and amazement, he asked them, "Do you have anything here to eat?"
24:42 They gave him a piece of broiled fish,
24:43 and he took it and ate it in their presence.
24:44 He said to them, "This is what I told you while I was still with you: Everything must be fulfilled that is written about me in the Law of Moses, the Prophets and the Psalms."
24:45 Then he opened their minds so they could understand the Scriptures.
24:46 He told them, "This is what is written: The Christ will suffer and rise from the dead on the third day,
24:47 and repentance and forgiveness of sins will be preached in his name to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.
24:48 You are witnesses of these things.
24:49 I am going to send you what my Father has promised; but stay in the city until you have been clothed with power from on high."
24:50 When he had led them out to the vicinity of Bethany, he lifted up his hands and blessed them.
24:51 While he was blessing them, he left them and was taken up into heaven.
