After Jesus' resurrection He made several visits to His disciples. Twice, while the disciples were gathered together, Jesus came and stood among them. What was remarkable about this event?

Jesus appeared
Correct! Wrong!

John 20:19, 26. Jesus twice appeared among the disciples even though they had the door securely locked in fear of being killed as Jesus had been.

Lead In

Locked Doors

The next verse in John 20:19 says this: “That Sunday evening the disciples were meeting behind locked doors because they were afraid of the Jewish leaders." They locked the door, they shut themselves off, they locked away the world. Out of fear. And what does Jesus do? He shows up in spite of locked doors and says "Peace be with you"! Can you imagine? “Here today and gone tomorrow. Gone yesterday, here today!” Abracadabra! He was there.....right there!
