were gone away, there appeared to them two angels, and one of them said to them, “ Fear not. Ye seek Jesus, who was crucified. He is not here. He is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay. And go, quickly, and tell bis disciples that he is risen from the dead. And they departed quickly from the sepulcbre, with fear and great joy, and did run to bring the disciples word. As they were going to tell bis disciples, behold Jesus met thein, saying, All bail. And they came, and held bin by the feet, and worshipped him. Then said Jesus unto them : Be not afraid. Go tell my brethren that they go into Galilee. And there shall they see me. Now when they were going, behold some of the watch came into the city, and showed unto the chief priests all the things that were done." So in Matt. xxviij. 5 11, or, as in Job xx. 18, “ Mary Magdalene came, and told the disciples, that she had seen the Lord, and that he had spoken these things unto her." When she, and the rest of the women, now came down to the apostles, it might be about seven or eight, at the latest about eight or nine in the forenoon. Nor did the women, nor any of the disciples, go up to the sepulcbre any more after this. These just inentioned, are all the journeys to the sepulchre which are recorded by the evangelists. Some wbile after the return of these women, and after they had reported their testimony to the apostles, two of their company went to the village, called Emmaus; where Jesus appeared to them also, and was known to them, about three of the clock in the afternoon, or sooner. And about the same time the Lord appeared also to Peter, though we cannot exactly say the place. Jesus having clearly made known himself to the two at Emmaus, as they were sitting down to table, he afterwards withdrew, when it was about three afternoon. “ They then rose up the same hour, and returned to Jerusalem, and found the eleven gathered together, and them that were with them. They arrived there about five afternoon, or sooner. Immeiliately after which “ Jesus [also] came, and stood in the midst," and graciously manifested himself to them, giving them full assurance that it was he himself.
According to different computations, Jesus showed himself to his disciples and followers four or five times on the day in which he rose from the dead. First to Mary Magdalene, and the women with her at the sepulchre; next to the two who went to Emmaus, then to Peter, and at length to the eleven at Jerusalem, who were assembled together, about five of the clock in the afternoon. If we compute the appearance to Mary Magdalene, to be distinct from that to the women, there are five appearances, otherwise, they are four only.
Thus I have digested the bistory of our Saviour's resurrection, and bis first appearances to the disciples. I please myself with the persuasion, that I have done it in a plainer manner, than it has been done of late by some others. These thoughts therefore are now referred to your consideration. And I remain, with true esteem,
