On occasion we encounter someone who says he has no ability to believe in Jesus.  He has concluded that everything that was recorded is nothing but myths.  Of course they usually admit after more discussion that they have little or no knowledge of the Bible. 

Dr. Ryrie, by listing all the Resurrection appearances of Jesus as recorded in Scripture on page 1672 of the Ryrie Study Bible is making it easy for me to convey it to you.

Mary Magdalene          Jerusalem          Sunday          Mark 16:9-11, John 20:11-18

Some other women            “                        “                 Matthew 28:9, 10

Peter                                      “                        “                 Luke 24:14, 1 Corinthians 15:5

Emmaus disciples          Emmaus                 “                Luke 24:13-35

10 disciples                     Jerusalem              “                 Mark 16:14; Luke 24:26-43;    John1, John 20:19-25

11 disciples                     Jerusalem       A week later   John 20:26-31; 1 Corinthians 15:5

7 disciples                       Galilee                    ?                 John 21:1-25

500 at one time                   ?                        ?                 1 Corinthians 15:6

James (Brother of Jesus)   ?                         ?                1 Corinthians 15:6

11 disciples                    Galilee                   ?                Matthew 28:16-20; Mark 16:15-18

11 disciples                    Jerusalem     40 days later   Luke 24:44—53; Acts 1:3-12

The weight of evidence is there.   Just listen for the kooky opinions and let them know that Christ came for their salvation – He died and He arose!  He intercedes before God on theirs and our behalf.
