The story of the Road to Emmaus in the final chapter of the Gospel of Luke, is a powerful tale filled with lessons about discernment, hope, truth and learning. Two men, distraught over the death of Jesus, who find themselves in deep conversation with the Teacher himself.
Only, they don’t realise it is Him. There, as they walk on the road to Emmaus, these two men learn about Christ directly from the source, truths of the scriptures and the use of knowledge to empower others. Upon their arrival and the stranger accompanying the men in sharing a meal, they recognise him, and loaded with newfound knowledge, confidence and encouragement, rush back to Jerusalem to share the good news.
