2-8-2017 Infallible Proofs

After His resurrection, Jesus “through the Holy Spirit had given commandments to the apostles whom He had chosen, to whom He also presented Himself alive after His suffering by many infallible proofs, being seen by them during forty days and speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom of God” (Acts 1:2-3 NKJV). “Infallible” means not capable of failing. What made these “proofs” “infallible?”  Because His living body was seen by: Mary Magdalene (Mark 16:9), two disciples on the Emmaus Road (Luke 24:13-34), Cephas, the Twelve, James, all the apostles (1 Corinthians 15:5-7). At the Sea of Tiberias, Jesus ate physical food with seven of the Apostles (John 21:1-14).  He was also seen by “over 500 brethren at once” (1 Corinthians 15:6). All of these bodily appearances within 40-days surely should be called “infallible.” This is a Christian’s “certainty of the words of truth” (Proverbs 22:21 NKJV).
