Christian Trivia Question #17 - First Words

Happy Easter Everyone!  He is risen!

This question is about arguably one of the happiest moments of the Apostles' lives.  After Jesus rose from the dead on Easter morning, Mary Magdeline was the first to see the empty tomb.

Now on the first day of the week Mary Magdalene went to the tomb early, while it was still dark, and saw that the stone had been taken away from the tomb.

Then she ran and came to Simon Peter, and to the other disciple, whom Jesus loved, and said to them, “They have taken away the Lord out of the tomb, and we do not know where they have laid Him.            John 20:1-2

But Peter and John did not see Jesus at that time.  Later that first Easter Sunday, Jesus appeared to the Apostles when they were gathered together praying.

What were Jesus' first words to the Apostles after He rose from the dead?

  1. ANSWER:

    John 20:19 Then, the same day at evening, being the first day of the week, when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled, for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood in the midst, and said to them, “Peace be with you.”

    20 When He had said this, He showed them His hands and His side. Then the disciples were glad when they saw the Lord.

    21 So Jesus said to them again, “Peace to you! As the Father has sent Me, I also send you.”

    22 And when He had said this, He breathed on them, and said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit.

    23 “If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven them, if you retain the sins of any, they are retained.”
