Jesus made 19 separate resurrection appearances; the first was to Mary Magdalene; the second to the women gathered at the tomb; the third was to James in Lazarus' garden; and the fourth shortly thereafter, to his family and friends gathered at Martha and Mary's home. (read more about those appearances here) The remainder of his appearances are covered in this series, begining with the fifth resurrection appearance - to the 25 women believers gathered at the home of Jopseph of Arimathea. These resurrection appearances contain some of Jesus most inspiring and hopeful messages.
