I did a search and can’t find an answer to these questions:
After Jesus’s Resurrection, He appeared first to Mary Magdalene and then several times to the apostles. Mary Magdalene didn’t recognize Him; neither did the apostles at first. Why not? Didn’t He look like himself? And if not, why not?
Someone told me that after the Resurrection, Jesus was in a different kind of Body, a “glorified Body” or something like that, but his definition of that term was that the Lord’s Body glowed with light. If that’s true, then He would have attracted a lot of attention and all who knew Him would have recognized Him.
I have another question. Why do we often end prayers with a phrase like “through Jesus Christ,” or “in Jesus’ name.” When praying to saints, I understand why we might say that. But why do we do it when praying to God the Father? Yet we don’t do it when we say The Lord’s Prayer, which is what Jesus taught us to pray.
Thanks for your help.
