Ascended to the Father?
« on: August 23, 2007, 06:55:06 PM »

ear Ray.

Do you have any idea why Jesus said to Mary in this passage, not to touch him since he had not yet ascended to the Father?

Is there any significance in this statement as to why she shouldn't touch Jesus at this point?

John 20:17 Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God.


Thanks a lot Ray, I appreciate the Help.

Dear DAnte: It isn't that Jesus didn't want them to "touch" Him, for they DID "touch" him:  "And as they went to tell His disciples, behold, Jesus met them, saying, All hail.  And they came and HELD HIM BY THE FEET, and worshiped Him."  (Matt. 28:9)

This is the very same even that took place in John 20:17, where Jesus said: "Touch me not..."  The word touch means to "Cling."  Jesus didn't want them to KEEP HOLDING HIM, as they did not want to let him go. Not that they couldn't give him a little touch on the arm or something.

God be with you,

Ray
