Resurrected Jesus Appears to the Apostles
In this video about Jesus Christ, our resurrected Lord appeared to the apostles in a group. All of the apostles were there except for Thomas. At first, when Jesus appeared to them with His resurrected body, they were afraid and supposed He was a spirit - possibly because of superstitions of the time. Then He asked them why thoughts arose in their hearts (why they were afraid). He said, “Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have” (Luke 24:39).
Previously, the apostles had not understood that Jesus would rise again or be resurrected the third day. They didn’t understand that His body and spirit would be reunited and that He would be alive again. Having this knowledge helps us understand a little more about why the apostles may have been afraid. Next, Jesus opened the scriptures up to them and helped them to understand what the prophets had written and what He had said about rising again the third day (Luke 24:45-48). Then, to help them gain sure knowledge of His resurrection, and that He had a physical body, He asked them for meat and ate it. A spirit cannot eat since it has no physical body.

About the Life of Jesus
More About Jesus’ Appearance:
Throughout history, God and/or Jesus have appeared to prophets. For example, God spoke to Moses face to face (Exodus 33:11). Also, Jesus made many appearances to His apostles. Jesus also appeared unto the ancient inhabitants of the Americas which is recorded in the Book of Mormon (3 Nephi 11). Finally, in our time, God and Jesus Christ both appeared to the prophet Joseph Smith in 1820 in response to a prayer about which church to join. Later, Joseph was directed to buried gold plates, the record of the ancient inhabitants of the Americas, and he translated them through the power of God called the Book of Mormon (as referenced previously).
