Jesus Christ Appeared in the Upper Room

Luke 24:35-48


Jesus Christ showed that He was flesh and bones.

He was not just a guy named Smith or Jones.


Jesus was very hungry because He

Had not eaten since Holy Thursday night.

After He had asked for something to eat,

The Apostles gave Him something quite light.


“They gave Him a piece of baked fish.”  It was

A secular communion.  When they served

Loaves and fishes, there were a few dishes.

Then there was time for Jesus in His prime.


They did not have dessert even though it

Was the end of the original Lent.


The Apostles went to every nation.

They brought the humble news of salvation.


Patrick McCaskey
