Pastor Roger Murrell noted something I thought was worth sharing:
For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; and that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures: and that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: after that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. (1 Cor 15:3-6)
Okay, so Jesus appeared to more than five hundred brothers before he ascended. But directly after the ascension we read this:
And in those days Peter stood up in the midst of the disciples, and said, (the number of names together were about an hundred and twenty,) (Acts 1:15)
Huh? One hundred and twenty? Where did the other 380+ go? Roger thought maybe they had family visiting and couldn’t make it to the meeting. Too bad; they apparently missed out on Pentecost.
