The Gospels, Acts, and Epistles, while all agreeing that Jesus rose from the dead and appeared to his followers, give different accounts of to whom Jesus appeared, where, and when. The account that has the greatest claim to reliability is the credal‐type account given by St Paul in 1 Corinthians. But this account lists only official witnesses whose witness would be credible to first‐century Jews. I develop a detailed hypothesis of how the other accounts of the appearances can be fitted into Paul's account without having to suppose any of the accounts misleading except in very small details, easily explicable by minor errors of memory.

Keywords:   Acts, appearances of Jesus, 1 Corinthians, Epistles, Gospels, Jesus, St. Paul
