Cleapas and another disciple are walking from Jerusalem to Emmaus.
Jesus suddenly appears to walk with the disciples.
You must be the only person in Jerusalem who hasn’t heard about all the things that have happened there the last few days
What are you discussing so intently as you walk along?
The things that happened to Jesus, the man from Nazareth, He was a prophet who did powerful miracles. But our leading priests and other religious leaders handed him over to be condemned to death, and they crucified him. We had hoped he was the Messiah who had come to rescue Israel
Then some women from our group of his followers were at his tomb early this morning, and they came back with an amazing report. They said his body was missing, and they had seen angels who told them Jesus is alive! Some of our men ran out to see, and sure enough, his body was gone, just as the women had said
You foolish people! You find it so hard to believe all that the prophets wrote in the Scriptures. Wasn’t it clearly predicted that the Messiah would have to suffer all these things before entering his glory?
