Jim P - do not go too fast past these words.
If it is/was true that "In a little while..." they did not see Jesus, then it certainly must be
also true that "after a little while you will see me" means the same - a little while. What is
a little while? greater than 2000 years? Or, is a little while more like "this generation"
