and he was buried; and he was raised on the third day, in accordance with what the Tanakh says;
and he was seen by Kefa, then by the Twelve;
and afterwards he was seen by more than five hundred brothers at one time, the majority of whom are still alive, though some have died.
Later he was seen by Ya'akov, then by all the emissaries;
