Jesus appeared
to two of the disciples. They excitedly came
back to the others. The Lord is risen indeed. He has appeared to Simon. We didn’t recognize Him,
not on the road. But when He broke bread,
then we knew Him. At Emmaus. How strange
He should go there. Peace be with you. Why are you troubled? Why are these doubts
coming up in your minds? Look, my hands and my feet, and see that it is I, Myself. Feel Me and you will know. For a spirit does not have flesh
and bones as you see I have. These are the very
things I told you about, while I was still with you. That everything written
about Me in the Law of Moses and the writings of
the prophets and the Psalms had to come true. This is what is written; The Messiah must suffer, and rise
from the dead on the third day. And in His name, the message of repentance
and the forgiveness of sins must be preached to all nations, beginning in Jerusalem. You are witnesses of these things. And I Myself bring the promise
of My Father upon you. But you must wait in the city, until the power from above
comes down upon you.
