Bible: Lk 24:13-35

Jesus Walks the Road to Emmaus

24:13 Now 1  that very day two of them 2  were on their way to a village called Emmaus, about seven miles 3  from Jerusalem. 4  24:14 They 5  were talking to each other about all the things that had happened. 24:15 While 6  they were talking and debating 7  these things, 8  Jesus himself approached and began to accompany them 24:16 (but their eyes were kept 9  from recognizing 10  him). 11  24:17 Then 12  he said to them, “What are these matters 13  you are discussing so intently 14  as you walk along?” And they stood still, looking sad. 24:18 Then one of them, named Cleopas, answered him, 15 Are you the only visitor to Jerusalem who doesn’t know 16  the things that have happened there 17  in these days? 24:19 He 18  said to them, “What things?” “The things concerning Jesus the Nazarene,” they replied, “a man 19  who, with his powerful deeds and words, proved to be a prophet 20  before God and all the people; 24:20 and how our chief priests and rulers handed him over 21  to be condemned to death, and crucified 22  him. 24:21 But we had hoped 23  that he was the one who was going to redeem 24  Israel. Not only this, but it is now the third day since these things happened. 24:22 Furthermore, some women of our group amazed us. 25  They 26  were at the tomb early this morning, 24:23 and when they did not find his body, they came back and said they had seen a vision of angels, 27  who said he was alive. 24:24 Then 28  some of those who were with us went to the tomb, and found it just as the women had said, but they did not see him.” 29  24:25 So 30  he said to them, “You 31  foolish people 32 how slow of heart 33  to believe 34  all that the prophets have spoken! 24:26 Wasn’t 35  it necessary 36  for the Christ 37  to suffer these things and enter into his glory? 24:27 Then 38  beginning with Moses and all the prophets, 39  he interpreted to them the things written about 40  himself in all the scriptures.

24:28 So they approached the village where they were going. He acted as though he wanted to go farther, 41  24:29 but they urged him, 42 Stay with us, because it is getting toward evening and the day is almost done.” So 43  he went in to stay with them.

24:30 When 44  he had taken his place at the table 45  with them, he took the bread, blessed and broke it, 46  and gave it to them. 24:31 At this point 47  their eyes were opened and they recognized 48  him. 49  Then 50  he vanished out of their sight. 24:32 They 51  said to each other, “Didn’t 52  our hearts 53  burn within us 54  while he was speaking with us on the road, while he was explaining 55  the scriptures to us? 24:33 So 56  they got up that very hour and returned to Jerusalem. 57  They 58  found the eleven and those with them gathered together 24:34 and 59  saying, “The Lord has really risen, and has appeared to Simon! 60  24:35 Then they told what had happened on the road, 61  and how they recognized him 62  when he broke the bread.
