Hypotyposeis: See My Hands and My Feet

Andrew Criddle over at Hypotyposeis has an interesting, but quick, discussion of Luke 24:39. Criddle suggests that a viable ancient interpretation (based on the Epistula Apostolorum and the writings of Justin Martyr [see the comments]) of Luke 24:39 was not that Jesus wanted the disciples to see his feet because they had been pierced. Rather, he wanted them to see his feet because they were touching the ground—he was real, corporeal, etc.

Interesting…
