This chapter examines the accounts of Jesus' Resurrection with regard to the fact that some saw Jesus alive after his death. Although the witnesses saw something visible and tangible in their world, between appearances the risen Jesus had no such location—he was not thought to be lodging with Mary and Martha at the Jerusalem caravansary. He appeared when and as he would and then “vanished from their sight” or “withdrew from them”—neither “walked away” nor “disappeared.” Attention is also given to Jesus' Resurrection as confessed by the church to be a bodily resurrection, with or without the emptying of the tomb.

Keywords: Jesus; Resurrection; Jerusalem caravansary; bodily resurrection
