Based on Luke 24:13-35
A way to be on mission for your spiritual health based on Luke 24:13-35, a reading from the Revised Common Lectionary for the Third Sunday of Easter, 4/30/17. Two disciples are walking to Emmaus. Jesus joins them but is not recognized. He asks what they are talking about. “The last few days of Jesus in Jerusalem,” they answer. “What happened?” Jesus asks. They say that he was a mighty prophet but the chief priests and leaders had him crucified. They go on to tell of the empty tomb and that the angels told some of the women that he was alive. Jesus calls them slow to believe and interprets how the scripture foretold his suffering and death before he enters glory. Coming to the village, they ask Jesus to dine with them. Jesus takes the bread, blesses it and breaks it, and gives it to them. At that moment, they recognize him and he disappears. The two go back to Jerusalem, find the disciples, and are told Jesus has risen and appeared to Simon. Then they tell what happened on the road and how Jesus was known to them in the breaking of the bread.
A theme: Jesus is known when his followers gather to break bread and recall the Last Supper.
