Lk. 24:44-49; I Cor. 15:5-8; Acts 1:3
Jesus presented Himself many times during the forty days He remained after His resurrection. On one of those occasions, He pointed out that the events that had occurred, were necessary to fulfill the things written in the Law of Moses, the Prophets and the Psalms concerning Him—that it was necessary for the Christ to suffer and to rise from the dead the third day and that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in His name to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. Later, he appeared before Saul, who became the apostle, Paul.
