And when he had said this, he showed them his hands and his feet. a41
While in their joy they were disbelieving and still wondering, he said to them, "Have you anything here to eat?"
They gave him a piece of broiled fish,
and he took it and ate in their presence.
Then he said to them, "These are my words that I spoke to you while I was still with you—that everything written about me in the law of Moses, the prophets, and the psalms must be fulfilled."
Then he opened their minds to understand the scriptures,
and he said to them, "Thus it is written, that the Messiah b is to suffer and to rise from the dead on the third day,
and that repentance and forgiveness of sins is to be proclaimed in his name to all nations, beginning from Jerusalem.
You are witnesses c of these things.
And see, I am sending upon you what my Father promised; so stay here in the city until you have been clothed with power from on high."
Then he led them out as far as Bethany, and, lifting up his hands, he blessed them.
