The Whole Story

On the road to Emmaus

The two disciples didn’t recognize the stranger who joined them on their journey (Luke 24:13-16; Mark 16:12).

They sadly informed him about the crucifixion and the empty tomb.

They told him about the women who said angels had announced His resurrection.

And yet the two disciples couldn’t bring themselves to believe it.

They spoke of Jesus as one “who was a prophet mighty in deed and word . . . . But we were hoping that it was He who was going to redeem Israel” (vv. 19, 21—emphasis added).

In their minds Jesus was dead.

Their “Aha!” moment

When they finally recognized the stranger as Jesus, their sadness was dispelled by joy, their despair by hope.

Now they had good news to share!

His resurrection gives meaning to everything.
