Luke 24:13-35 NLT
Literal Story that teaches Spiritual Truths
This is the journey ALL must take
#1: From NOT recognizing Jesus
#2: To understanding what God’s Word
says about Jesus
#3: To recognizing Jesus for who He is
#4: To share with others what we have
15 As they talked and discussed these things, Jesus himself
suddenly came and began walking with them.
- ~ talking WITH Jesus
16 But God kept them from recognizing him.
WHY verse 16? They KNEW the Scriptures but did NOT believe
17 He asked them, “What are you discussing so intently as you
walk along?” They stopped short, sadness written across
LESSON: We must be careful NOT to make the same mistake,
to discount what God has done simply because we
cannot explain it or understand it
18 Then one of them, Cleopas, replied, “You must be the only
person in Jerusalem who hasn’t heard about all the things
that have happened there the last few days.”
19 “What things?” Jesus asked.
LESSON: Knowing ABOUT Jesus and KNOWING Him are two
very different things
“The things that happened to Jesus, the man from Nazareth,”
they said. “He was a prophet who did powerful miracles, and
he was a mighty teacher in the eyes of God and all the people.
20 But our leading priests and other religious leaders handed him
over to be condemned to death, and they crucified him.
21 We had hoped he was the Messiah who had come to rescue
Israel. This all happened three days ago.
22 “Then some women from our group of his followers were at
his tomb early this morning, and they came back with an

who told them Jesus is alive!
24 Some of our men ran out to see, and sure enough, his body
was gone, just as the women had said.”
25 Then Jesus said to them, “You foolish people! You find it so
hard to believe all that the prophets wrote in the Scriptures.
- “believe” heart problem ~ not “understand” head problem
26 Wasn’t it clearly predicted that the Messiah would have to
suffer all these things before entering his glory?”
- Isaiah 53:3-5; 50:5-7; Daniel 9:26, Zechariah 12:10
LESSON: To understand WHO Jesus is ~ you must have a
correct understanding of God’s Word ~ Romans 10:17
27 Then Jesus took them through the writings of Moses and all
the prophets, explaining from all the Scriptures the things
- Greatest Bible Study EVER !!!!
28 By this time they were nearing Emmaus and the end of their
journey. Jesus acted as if he were going on, 29 but they
begged him, “Stay the night with us, since it is getting late.”
So he went home with them.
- They had to make the decision to invite Him
30 As they sat down to eat, he took the bread and blessed it.
Then he broke it and gave it to them.
31 Suddenly, their eyes were opened, and they recognized him.
And at that moment he disappeared!
32 They said to each other, “Didn’t our hearts burn within us as
he talked with us on the road and explained the Scriptures
