Emmaus Road - Introduction

Psalms > Stories with Psalms > Emmaus Road Story

Note: This story is fictional and portrays some of the many possible things Jesus could have told the disciples while walking and talking with them on the road to Emmaus. All scripture quotes in capital letters represent New Testament quotes of Old Testament scripture.

"They (the Jews) had developed a sense of the coming of a promised one. But they did not know how that would work out. No one did. Because there were so many prophesies no one could put them all together, and it's only after the resurrection that Jesus explained to the disciples on the road to Emmaus how everything worked."
[Unit 8, BE 109, Transcript, 25-26]

Three on the Road to Emmaus

Luke 24:13-27. 13 And behold, two of them were going that very day to a village named Emmaus, which was about seven miles from Jerusalem. 14 And they were talking with each other about all these things which had taken place. 15 While they were talking and discussing, Jesus Himself approached and began traveling with them. 16 But their eyes were prevented from recognizing Him. 17 And He said to them, “What are these

words that you are exchanging with one another as you are walking?” And they stood still, looking sad. 18 One of them, named Cleopas, answered and said to Him, “Are You the only one visiting Jerusalem and unaware of the things which have happened here in these days?” 19 And He said to them, “What things?” And they said to Him, “The things about Jesus the Nazarene, who was a prophet mighty in deed and word in the sight of God and all the people, 20 and how the chief priests and our rulers delivered Him to the sentence of death, and crucified Him. 21 But we were hoping that it was He who was going to redeem Israel. Indeed, besides all this, it is the third day since these things happened. 22 But also some women among us amazed us. When they were at the tomb early in the morning, 23 and did not find His body, they came, saying that they had also seen a vision of angels who said that He was alive. 24 Some of those who were with us went to the tomb and found it just exactly as the women also had said; but Him they did not see.” 25 And He said to them, “O foolish men and slow of heart to believe in all that the prophets have spoken! 26 Was it not necessary for the Christ to suffer these things and to enter into His glory?” 27 Then beginning with Moses and with all the prophets, He explained to them the things concerning Himself in all the Scriptures.
