Road to Emmaus
And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye
may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
[Romans 12:2] [KJV]

"The Road to Emmaus" refers to the Biblical account found in Luke 24:13-35. In this gospel narrative, two men are walking on the road to Emmaus, a village located approximately six miles from Jerusalem. It was on the day commonly referred to as Resurrection Sunday and the men were pondering the events which had recently transpired and trying to understand them, when a third person joined them and entered into the conversation. The two men had been talking about the recent crucifixion and death of Jesus, who they had trusted would be the redeemer of Israel. The third man admonished them for not believing what had already been revealed by the prophets in God's Word concerning the coming Christ. He then proceeded to expound to them in all of the scriptures concerning himself. The fact that Jesus Christ took the time so soon after his resurrection to walk with two simple disciples and to explain to them in great detail how it was necessary for him to have suffered and then to enter into his glory, is quite remarkable. The two men did not recognize Jesus until after they had invited him to abide with them. As Jesus blessed the bread, broke it and gave it to them, their eyes were opened and they knew him. It was at that point that he vanished out of their sight. They immediately said to each other "Did not our heart burn within us, while he talked with us by the  way and while he opened to us the scriptures?" [Luke 24:32]

Many have found themselves traveling a similar 'Road to Emmaus' and have pondered their situation and tried to understand. As we look for answers and help, we can turn to God through His son Jesus Christ and the scriptures and find comfort and hope. We are told in Romans 15:4 "For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope." You too can find comfort and hope in the scriptures as you study God's wonderful, matchless Word and fellowship with likeminded believers.
