Sunday Bible Message- Walk To Emmaus

Luke 24:13-35
The Walk To Emmaus

Now on the same day two of them were going to a village called Emmaus., about severn miles from Jerusalem, and talking with each other about all these things had happened. While they were talking and discussing , Jesus himself came near and went with them but their eyes were kept from recognizing him. And he said to them, 'What are you discussing with each other while you walk along?'. They stood still, looking sad. Then one of them, whose name was Cleofas, answered him ' Are you the only stranger in Jerusalem, who does not know the things that have taken place there in these days?'. He asked them ' What things?'. They replied, 'The things about Jesus of Nazareth, who was a prophet mighty in deed and word before God and all the people, and how our chief priests and leaders handed him over to be condemned to death and crucified him. But we had hoped the he was the one to redeem Israel. Yes besides all this, it is now the third day since these things took place. Moreover, some women of our group astounded us. Theywere at the tomb early this morning, and when they did not find his body there, they came back and told us that they had indeed seen a vision of angels who said that he was alive. Some of those who were with us went to the tomb and found that it just as the women had said; but they did not se him'. Then he said to them, 'Oh how foolish you are, and slow your heart to believe all that the prophets have declared! Was it not necessary that the Messiah should suffer these things and then enter into his glory?'. Then beginning with Moses and all the prophets, he interpreted to them the things about himself in all the scriptures.

As they came near the village to which they were going, he walked ahead as if he were going on. But they urged him strongly sayin, "Stay with us, because it is almost evening and the day is now nearly over. So he went in to stay with them. When he was at the table with them, he took bread, blessed and broke it, and gave it to them. Then their eyes were opened and they reconized him; and he vanished from their sight. They said to each other, 'Were not our hearts burning within us while he was talking to us on the road, while he was opening the scriptures to us?' That same hour they got up and returned to Jerusalem; and they found the eleven and their companions gathered together. They were saying, 'The Lord has risen indeed, and he has appeared to Simon'. Then they told what had happened on the road, and how he had been made known to them in the breaking of the bread.

Hi Tey,
Christ has risen and it is up to all of us to get the fullest benefits of His resurrection from the dead. If Christ has risen, as indeed He has, then we will rise with Him in glory when He returns to claim His church. Thanks for the glorious post. God bless you and your family always.
