Road to Emmaus

On the road to Emmaus, Jesus walks with two disciples as they are leaving Jerusalem.  This is on the actual day of His resurrection, not any later, and they are confused and leaving.  Let me emphasize again – leaving.  They have heard that the women have found the tomb empty and heard that Jesus was alive, but they don’t believe it.  They are despondent about their dashed hopes for a savior.  And on the way, Jesus explains all the Old Testament to them and how it pointed to exactly what had happened.  Wouldn’t you love to be in on that conversation?  They couldn’t get enough of it.  They begged Him to stay for dinner, and finally recognized Him “in the breaking of the bread.”  He disappeared, and they immediately turned around and hurried back to Jerusalem. Sometimes it just takes that personal contact to convince us of what we’ve been told already.  Maybe you’ll get that contact today.  Maybe you’ll be that contact for someone else.  I hope we recognize it.
