Jesus knew the hearts of that tiny band of followers who were afraid and uncertain. He knew their fears, just as He knows ours. He broke into their “stronghold,” their locked room filled with fear (John 20:19), and gave them what they needed to be re-assured of the truth of His teachings and all they had seen and heard about the resurrection. Jesus will break through your fears and your doubts bringing you hope encouragement and reassurance that He is with us always (Matthew 28:20). But you have to be willing to let Him.
