On the road to Emmaus, Jesus uses the Hebrew Scriptures, the law and the prophets, to explain Jesus (himself) as the Messiah. We will look at some of the possible texts he used to make such an explanation. What did the disciples need to hear to have assurance from the ancient texts that Jesus is the Son of God?
What did Christ say to the disciples while walking the Emmaus Road? I wonder if the disciples walking down the path were bemoaning Christ’s absence and failure to fulfill their hoped-for vision of a Messiah, much like many of us as the faithful do today, lamenting that God hasn’t granted us what we expected or wanted in the Messiah. And yet, this is God-in-flesh.
