Peter Looks – He has Risen Indeed, Luke 24:12

Peter, unlike the women, was unsure if Jesus had risen from the dead as his Lord and Master said He would.

When he had worked things out, Peter would become a leader of the early disciples and do a number of miracles under the power of the Holy Spirit.

Peter, who denied his Lord and master, would become, along with Paul, one of the two main Apostles mentioned in the Book of Acts, which was written by Luke.

Peter Looks

24:12 Peter, however, got up and ran to the tomb. He stooped down and saw only the linen cloths. Then he went home, wondering about what had happened.
Luke 24:12

More Information:

Even the disciples did not believe the women, because their words seemed like nonsense or, as in the Greek, leros, a medical term for a delirium. These two women who were going to look after a dead person were the first people to see Jesus after His resurrection. Read also John 20:1-23.
