"HE IS RISEN"

Luke13-34  The Road to Emmaus

It is the first day of the week, Sunday, the third day after Jesus was crucified and Mary Magdalene and the other women have gone ot  Jesus’s tomb to prepare the body for burial, and the tomb was empty.  As they were wondering what had happened two men, in clothes gleaming like lightening appeared, telling them Jesus has risen.  They tell the disciples, who do not believe them, but Peter goes to the tomb to confirm the body is gone, and he walks away in confusion.


Later that morning, Cleopas and one of the other disciples were walking to Emmaus, a village about seven miles from Jerusalem, discussing what they had seen with Jesus’ crucifixion and the empty tomb.  A man who was walking near them overhears what they are saying and asks them to explain.  


“Are you the only one visiting Jerusalem who does not know the things which have happened in these last few days?”    They go on talking and arrive at Cleopas’ home.  Jesus is invited in and as they sit to eat Jesus takes the bread, blesses it, and breaks it, as he did during their Passover Meal, and the disciples recognize him, and Jesus disappears.  The disciples rush back to Jerusalem to tell the disciples they have seen the risen Jesus.
