Our Lord Appears After His Ascension.

F I. Cor. XV. 8.

f 8 and last of all, as to the child untimely born, he appeared to me also. [Since Paul reckons this among the 767bodily appearances of our Lord, we have included it in our work; but it borders upon those spiritual appearances which belong rather to apostolic history and may be classed with the vision of Stephen (Acts vii. 55) and John (Rev. i. 9–17), to which it was near kin. Accounts of the appearance will be found in the ninth, twenty-second and twenty-sixth chapters of Acts. For completeness' sake we might also add the words of Jesus at Acts xx. 35, viz.: It is more blessed to give than to receive. These words quoted by Paul are not found in the gospel. The earthly life of Jesus shades off into the celestial, but we think that he have now given all that may be rightly included in the former.]
