The shattering disappointment and loss in Jesus’ gruesome death is followed by the mystery of the empty tomb and the many appearances of the risen Christ.  These stories share a surprising physicality: touching, eating, walking, cooking and fishing, as Jesus appears and disappears without any actual means of entrance or exit.  A wide variety of eyewitness accounts lead us to believe that something powerful and mysterious took place time and time again.  What do these central mysteries of faith tell us about God? What might these appearance narratives mean for us today?
