Encountering Jesus on the Road to Emmaus
April 25, 2014 • Luke 24:13-49
In the four gospels, the truth of Jesus’ resurrection from the dead very often does not so much burst onto the scene as it creeps up on people in surprising ways. The resurrection of Jesus quite literally sneaks up on two people sadly walking the road to Emmaus. This is a story filled with intrigue, mystery, comedy, and finally great joy. It's also a story in which Jesus himself shows us how his experience fulfills Hebrew scripture about the Messiah and gives us clues about where we can find the post-resurrection Jesus.
