The Thrill of Victory or the Agony of Defeat, “The Head Coach meets his team” #18(Part 1)

"The Head Coach meets his team"

Disclaimer: I will do the best I can to properly give the order of events of Jesus’s appearances to his team as they actually took place. We are dealing with four gospel records of the same event

 

After the season is over the Head Coach does two things, he takes in-home visits when he is recruiting for next year’s team, and then he goes to the booster clubs and gives pep talks to build the fan base. During his three appearances, he taught his team a lot of things, hopefully, we have explained correctly how they took place  

The first time the Head Coach appeared to his team was in a mountain in Galilee, which might be the same place where he taught the sermon on the mount – Matthew 16:20(5:1-7:29)

 

The two fans that the Head Coach spent the day with, and Mary (John 20:18) told the team he was alive. At that point, the Head Coach appeared out of thin air in their midst as they were eating dinner, and he told them to be peaceful. Their response was very unpeaceful, they were terrified, full of fear, and doubted that it was him, they even thought he was a spirit, but they were glad he was alive! – Matthew 28:16, 17, Mark 16:14-18, Luke 24:36-38, John 20:19 (doors were locked because they feared the Jews (the world’s team)

  •  The Head Coach seemed to be pretty pissed off about their unbelief and their hardened hearts, why didn’t they believe the cheerleaders and the two fans that told you I was alive? – Mark 16:14
  • He asked them why they had negative thoughts arise in their hearts (their minds). “Look at my hands and feet, touch me, I am flesh and blood and not a spirit” – Luke 24:38-40, John 20:20

 

  • While they didn’t believe they were joyful and wondered. Do we call this half-believing or wishy-washy believing at best? – Luke 24:41
  • Being the Head Coach, he was always coaching, he asked them do you have any meat? They gave him a piece of broiled fish and a honeycomb (Beeswax?) and he ate in front of them – Luke 24:41-43

 

  • He taught his team the same thing he taught the two fans concerning him being the redeemer of mankind from Moses, the prophets, and Psalms – Luke 24:44,45

 

  • He taught them about the coming new birth, which was still the future. He explained repentance and remission of sins would be taught in his name to all nations (not just the Jewish nation), starting from Jerusalem – Luke 24:46-49

 

  • He now delivered a blockbuster, his team was going to receive the Spirit of his Father, but first, go to Jerusalem and stay there until they would be popped with Spiritual Power from above – Luke 24:49, John 20:21,22, Acts 1:2-8 (baptized with God’s Spirit, not water, God said Spirit, man says water, you choose!) 

 

  • He gave them a pep talk, told them he now had all power over heaven and earth – Matthew 28:18
  • Go to all parts of the world and teach his fans how to play the game: He was starting to unfold the game plan of life – Matthew 28:18-20, Mark 16:15-19
  • He also told them whose sins you remit (released), they are remitted, but if they wanted to keep their sins, that was fine also – John 20:23
  • One of the eleven named Thomas wasn’t present at this meeting. His teammates told him they had seen the Head Coach, he replied unless he saw the nail prints in his hands and stick my fingers into his side he won’t believe – John 20:24, 25

 

The second time the Head Coach appeared to his team was 8 days later, this time Thomas was with them – John 20:26

 

  • The Head Coach told Thomas to look at his hands and thrust his hands into his side, now do you believe? Thomas replied “My Lord and My God” – John 20:27, 28

 

  • He told the team, it’s great Thomas now believed, but better are the ones that don’t see me and believe – John 20:29

 

  • Then he did many other signs, and taught them they should believe that he was the Christ, the Son of God, and believing in him you will have eternal life through his name (here is the hidden treasure of being a son of God, it’s now available to be in perfect health – 3 John 2)John  20:30, 31
