J55 Jesus Appears To His Disciples - Poem by Simple Simon

It was late Sunday evening.
While others were resting,
All the disciples gathered
And secretly they stayed.

As the Jewish authorities
Were making enquiries
They were afraid to go out
Openly in the day light.

Jesus appeared before them.
It gave them courage some.
“Peace be with you, ” he said.
He breathed o’er their head.

“If you forgive people’s sin
They are, in turn, forgiven.
If you do not forgive them,
Then, I’ll not forgive them.”

“As the Father sent me here
So I send you all here.
Receive the Holy Spirit.
And the power behind it.”

He opened their minds
So they could understand
What was pre-written
On the Scriptural lines

“Repentance of sins
Forgiveness of sins
You preach all nations
On these two messages.”

Every letter and word
In spirit they all heard
And they were too glad
Having seen their Lord.

He departed thereafter
Back to his Father
And up he was taken
Straight to the Heaven.


If what all Jesus had done,
Were to be written down,
Will the entire world,
All those book hold?

His life story is such a vast one
That whatever so far written
It’s like measuring with a spoon
All the waters of the ocean.”

The End of this Bible series,
But the love and kindness
Of Jesus Christ never ends
As long as this world exists.
