Ninth and Tenth Appearances of Jesus
Jesus also appeared to James. He showed himself to be alive to the apostles over the space of forty days and with many proofs. He spoke to them about the kingdom of God.
He told them not to leave Jerusalem, but to wait for the promise of the Father, who he said, he had heard from him.
Jesus reminded them:
John baptized with water. But you will be baptized in the Holy Spirit not many days from now.
These are my words which I spoke to you while I was with you, that all things written in the law of Moses and the prophets and the psalms concerning me needed to be fulfilled.
Then he opened their minds so that they would understand the scriptures.
He showed them where it was written that Christ should suffer and rise again from the dead on the third day, and that repentance and remission of sins would be preached in his name to all the nations, starting with Jerusalem.
Then Jesus told them:
I send you out with the promises of my Father. But stay in the city until you are clothed with power from on high.
They asked the Lord:
Is this the time you are going to restore the kingdom of Israel?
Jesus said to them:
It is not for you to know the time or seasons that the Father has set within his own authority.
But you will receive power, when the Holy Spirit is come upon you: and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in Judea and Samaria, and to the uttermost part of the earth.
