Jesus appears to the disciples and it takes a long time for them to absorb and believe this unexpected event.

Luke explains it is because their joy is unbounded. It is Jesus who goes out to the disciples and breaks into their lives. They experience their own resurrection of renewed hope and vitality when Jesus appears. In the reading from Acts, the disciples break into other people’s lives as Jesus did. They surprise the people. Peter not only cures a man, but he also teaches about Jesus, his resurrection, and the hope and new possibilities that this implies for people’s lives. The idea of resurrection after so many Easters still has a living vitality that renews hope in our lives and in those with whom we live.
