The Appearance on the Road to Emmaus

Part 3 of He's Not Here

There are three revealing meals in Luke's Gospel:
  1. The Feeding of the Five Thousand: Taking the five loaves and the two fish and looking up to heaven, he gave thanks and broke them. Then he gave them to the disciples to set before the people (9:16). This meal revealed that Jesus is the Messiah.
  2. The Last Supper: And he took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, "This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me" (22:19). This meal revealed that Jesus would suffer.
  3. The Meal at Emmaus: When he was at the table with them, he took bread, gave thanks, broke it and began to give it to them (24:30). This meal revealed that Jesus has risen!
