Jesus Open to Options

        After a few hours‘ sleep, when the twelve were assembled for a late breakfast with Jesus, he said: ―Now must you begin your work of preaching the glad tidings and instructing believers. Make ready to go to Jerusalem.‖ After Jesus had spoken, Thomas mustered up courage to say: ―I know, Master, that we should now be ready to enter upon the work, but I fear we are not yet able to accomplish this great undertaking. Would you consent for us to stay hereabouts for just a few days more before we begin the work of the kingdom?‖ And when Jesus saw that all of his apostles were possessed by this same fear, he said: ''It shall be as you have requested; we will remain here over the Sabbath day.''
