06 Sep John 20:19

19 So when it was evening on that day, the first day of the week, and when the doors were shut where the disciples were, for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood in their midst and said to them, “Peace be with you.”   

Picture this: the disciples are locked up in a room for fear of the Jews. They had just watched Jesus, who they had confessed as Lord and the Son of God, be put to death in the most cruel way – because of the Jewish leaders. Do you think the disciples thought perhaps they could be next? They were hiding out, laying low. They were all sitting around wondering what to do, and the next thing they know Jesus is standing in the middle of them! No warning, no door opening and BOOM! There is Jesus! What do you think you would have done?
