There is not a minute by minute account of what Jesus did after the crucifixion and His resurrection. Sometimes when I try to think through one gospel or another, I become very literal, and I start to wonder “what could Jesus’ resurrection life look like if they were all combined?” To reconcile the Bible accounts of the resurrected Jesus, I found a graph online and have included it below to show the possibility of how accounts overlapped.
And while the correlation between the Gospels may sometimes be confusing, they all have something to say about Christ’s ministry after His resurrection. The central point is this: Easter is never over. Because Jesus lives, we have reason to celebrate the resurrection every day.
I serve a risen Savior, he’s in the world today,
I know that he is living, whatever men may say;
I see his hand of mercy, I hear his voice of cheer,
and just the time I need him, he’s always near.”He lives! He lives! Christ Jesus lives today.
He walks with me and talks with me along life’s narrow way.
He lives! He lives! Salvation to impart.
You ask me how I know he lives? He lives within my heart!
So, go and make disciples to the glory of his name. Don’t be ashamed to tell everyone who’ll listen.
