John 20 – Recognize Jesus

A band of Jesus early followers visit His gravesite. This is followed by varied response to the revelation that His body was no longer there. Mary bumps into a gardener that turns out to be Jesus. He speaks her name and recognition follows. Jesus instructs and guides her regarding what to do next. Jesus reveals himself on sequential Sundays to His followers. That becomes a big deal. His followers have been meeting on Sunday’s ever since. Jesus offers some specific direction for a doubter, and then reminds everyone who trusts him without seeing His body, that they are blessed at a different level than those whose trust comes from living proof.
