    Definitions for Luke 24:41

    Meat - Food.

    Clarke's Commentary on Luke 24:41

    They - believed not for joy - They were so overcome with the joy of his resurrection, that they did not, for some time, properly receive the evidence that was before them - as we phrase it, they thought the news too good to be true.

    Barnes' Notes on Luke 24:41

    Believed not for joy - Their joy was so great, and his appearance was so sudden and unexpected, that they were bewildered, and still sought more evidence of the truth of what they "wished" to believe. This is nature. We have similar expressions in our language. "The news is too good to be true;" or, "I cannot believe it; it is too much for me."

    Any meat - This word does not mean "meat" in our sense of it, but in the old English sense, denoting "anything to eat."

    Wesley's Notes on Luke 24:41

    24:41 While they believed not for joy - They did in some sense believe: otherwise they would not have rejoiced. But their excess of joy prevented a clear, rational belief.
