Luke 24:38-40 Revised Standard Version Catholic Edition (RSVCE)

38 And he said to them, “Why are you troubled, and why do questionings rise in your hearts?[a] 39 See my hands and my feet, that it is I myself; handle me, and see; for a spirit has not flesh and bones as you see that I have.” 40 And when he had said this, he showed them his hands and his feet.[b]


  1. 24.38 Luke stresses this episode for the benefit of his Greek readers, for whom the resurrection of the body was both impossible and absurd; cf. Acts 17.32.
  2. Luke 24:40 Other ancient authorities omit verse 40
