Let’s start with the end and then go the beginning. It’s resurrection Sunday; Jesus has been raised from the dead! But not all believe. Jesus finds two of His disciples walking away from their destiny out of sorrow and lost hope. They are on the road to Emmaus, a seven mile walk away from Jerusalem, and Jesus joins them. “What kind of conversation is this that you have with one another as you walk and are sad?”, Jesus asked.

And so, begins a conversation. First, they tell their story of Jesus, death and lost hope. Then Jesus reframes their world with a kind rebuke, refocusing their vision from death and their lost hope to the goal, for His suffering to enter into glory. So, resurrected Jesus opens the scriptures beginning with the Torah (the first five books of Moses). He continues with all the Prophets and expounds to them, in all the scriptures, the things concerning Himself.

Dinner starts, Jesus blesses and breaks the bread, their eyes are opened, and He vanishes from their sight. Here is what they said, “Did not our heart burn within us while He talked with us on the road, and while He opened the Scriptures to us?” Luke 24:32

Next Wednesday, March 9th, we are embarking on a journey together in the gospels. For forty days leading to Resurrection Sunday/Easter, we will walk together with Jesus as He expounds to us Himself. I have taken the four gospels and broke up the eighty-nine chapters into a continuous story. I am excited to read aloud these chapters with you, listening with my heart to hear the Holy Spirit reveal Jesus to me.

Each Wednesday service, we will review our journey with Jesus in the gospels over the last seven days, and how our hearts burned. This Wednesday, I will introduce the gospel schedule and ways to include Jesus with you as you walk.
