Were Not Our Hearts Burning Within Us?

Apr 30, 2017

Passage: Luke 24:13-35

Speaker: Dave Lyle

Series: Lectionary Year A

Category: Easter season

We had hoped. These are the words on the lips of the disciple Cleopas as he and his unnamed friend trudge the seven-mile road from Jerusalem to Emmaus on the third day since their friend Jesus had been crucified and buried. “We had hoped,” he says, “that Jesus would be the one to redeem Israel.” Blinded by their fear, their grief, and their certainty that dead people stay dead, they simply do not recognize Jesus.
