On the Road to Emmaus
Now that same day two of them were going to a
village called Emmaus, about seven miles from
Jerusalem. They were talking with each other
about everything that had happened. As they
talked and discussed these things with each
other, Jesus himself came up and walked along
with them; but they were kept from recognizing
him.
He asked them, “What are you discussing
together as you walk along?”
They stood still,
their faces downcast. One of them, named
Cleopas, asked him, “Are you the only one
visiting Jerusalem who does not know the things
that have happened there in these days?”
“What
things?” he asked.
“About Jesus of Nazareth,”
they replied. “He was a prophet, powerful in word
and deed before God and all the people. The
chief priests and our rulers handed him over to
be sentenced to death, and they crucified him;
but we had hoped that he was the one who was
going to redeem Israel. And what is more, it is
the third day since all this took place. In addition,
some of our women amazed us. They went to the
tomb early this morning but didn’t find his body.
They came and told us that they had seen a
vision of angels, who said he was alive. Then
some of our companions went to the tomb and
found it just as the women had said, but they did
not see Jesus.”
He said to them, “How foolish
you are, and how slow to believe all that the
prophets have spoken! Did not the Messiah
have to suffer these things and then enter his
glory?” And beginning with Moses and all the
Prophets, he explained to them what was said in
all the Scriptures concerning himself.
As they
approached the village to which they were going,
Jesus continued on as if he were going farther.
But they urged him strongly, “Stay with us, for it
is nearly evening; the day is almost over.” So he
went in to stay with them.
When he was at the
table with them, he took bread, gave thanks,
broke it and began to give it to them. Then their
eyes were opened and they recognized him, and
he disappeared from their sight.They asked
each other, “Were not our hearts burning within
us while he talked with us on the road and
opened the Scriptures to us?”
They got up and
returned at once to Jerusalem. There they found
the Eleven and those with them, assembled
together and saying, “It is true! The Lord has
risen and has appeared to Simon.” Then the two
told what had happened on the way, and how
Jesus was recognized by them when he broke
the bread.

Opened eyes

A while ago I had my eyes checked and was
given a new prescription for lenses. Shortly
after I had these new glasses I noticed my
sight was blurred and I was having trouble
seeing clearly. When I had my eyes rechecked
I was told that I was given the wrong
prescription. It made me think that just like
me with my wrong prescription it’s possible to
go through life with blurred vision, seeing
but...
