36 Now at their speaking these things, Jesus Himself stood in their midst and is saying to them, “Peace to you!” 37 Yet, being dismayed and becoming affrighted, they supposed they are beholding a spirit.” 38 And He said to them, “Why are you disturbed? And wherefore are reasonings coming up in your hearts? 39 Perceive My hands and My feet, that it is I Myself. Handle Me and perceive, for a spirit has not flesh and bones according as you behold Me having.” 40 And saying this, He exhibits to them His hands and feet.”

As this testimony was being unfolded, so the Lord appeared in their midst. There are a number of things in this post resurrection account that I would like us to focus on because they speak to some of principles on which Logopraxis is built, and they also affirm the collective experience of many of you who have participated in Logopraxis face to face life groups. So we’ll move through things verse by verse with a view to drawing these principles out.
