Luke 24:13-24 (NRSV)
Luke’s account of what happened on that day of resurrection includes the story of two dazed and distraught disciples traveling along the road from Jerusalem to Emmaus. It was Sunday, the third day of the most traumatic weekend of their lives, and they were on a roller coaster of emotion.
On Friday these two disciples--along with many others—had witnessed the painful, humiliating and violent death of their beloved leader, teacher and friend. That night and through the day on Saturday they sat with each other in complete despair. And confusion. And fear. And now, on this day, a glimmer of hope had been introduced into the situation.
