   04/26/2020 — The Road to Emmaus   


NJ local road; can you guess where?
Fun Fact

According to a very ancient Christian tradition, Emmaus is today's Arab village of Amwas, which lies 19 miles to the West of Jerusalem. The place was called Nicopolis during the 3rd-7th centuries AD. Many manuscripts of the Gospel of Luke have a shorter distance between Jerusalem and Emmaus (7 miles). It is this distance which is found in modern printed Bibles.

During the Crusader and Renaissance times many Christians, traveling to the Holy Land, were looking for Emmaus at this shorter distance. That's why several villages which lie 7 miles away from Jerusalem were thought to be Emmaus. Even today one can find three Emmaus in the Holy Land: Emmaus Nicopolis, Qubeibe and Abu-Gosh!

This Lesson's Focus is Open your eyes: Jesus is here! or Sometimes we can't see what is right before our eyes.

The Road to Emmaus (2:57 cartoon version)
Brokenhearted over the crucifixion of Jesus, two disciples were on a seven-mile journey on the road to the village of Emmaus. They were joined by a stranger who explained to them how scripture foretold the death and resurrection of the Messiah. After being invited by the disciples to dinner, the stranger broke bread and blessed it and the disciples recognized that he was the risen Jesus. Luke 24:13-35
