He is Risen! But more must still occur.
Bright Wednesday / the Road to Emmaus ~ Luke 24:13-35.
“He has Risen!”
That’s the good news that the angel gave to the women at the tomb and the very good news that the women gave to the disciples.
Who could need more than that?
Yet the disciples could not bring themselves to believe. They wanted to, desperately, but their earthly realism prevented complete belief.
So more is needed, and more comes on the road to Emmaus.
Three days after the Crucifixion, on this very day of the Resurrection, two of the Jesus’ followers are walking on the road to Emmaus.
