Luke 24: 13 – 31

On the day that Jesus rose from death, two of the disciples set out to walk
to Emmaus, about seven miles from Jerusalem.
As they walked they talked together about all that had happened. 
While they were discussing these things, Jesus drew near and went with them, but they were kept from recognising him. 

He said to them, “What is this conversation that you are having as you walk?” 
   They stood still, looking sad, then one of them, Cleopas, answered him:
“Are you the only visitor to Jerusalem who doesn’t know the things that have happened there in these days?”
He said to them, “What things?” 

And they replied, “About Jesus of Nazareth, a man who was a prophet mighty
in deed and word before God and all the people, 
and how our chief priests and rulers delivered him up to be condemned to death, and crucified him. 

But we had hoped that he was the one to redeem Israel.
And it is now the third day since these things happened. Some women of our company amazed  us.
They went to the tomb early in the morning, and  did not find his body,  
but they came back saying that they had seen a vision of angels, who said that he was alive. 
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 either.”

He said to them, “O foolish ones, and slow of heart to believe what the prophets have spoken! 
Was it not necessary that the Christ should suffer these things and enter into his glory?”
And beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, he interpreted to them in all the Scriptures the things concerning himself.

So they drew near to the village to which they were going. 
He acted as if he were going farther, but they urged him strongly, saying,
“Stay with us, for it is toward evening and the day is now far spent.”

So he went in to stay with them.
When he was at table with them, he took the bread and blessed and broke it and gave it to them. 
And their eyes were opened, and they recognized him.
He vanished from their sight and they said, 
“Didn’t our hearts burn within us as he talked to us on the road, when he opened the Scriptures to us?”
