Jesus the Stranger

Jesus the Stranger

April 07, 2013 | Dr. Doug Hucke

Passage: Luke 24:13-35

When we concentrate on our disappointments and our arguments with the world, we are blinded to what God might be doing around us. We must keep sight of God's Big Story, which is full of good news, because we have a role to play in it.

Series Information

While the account of the encounter between the risen Jesus and two disciples is often called "The Road to Emmaus," it more accurately is "The Road from Jerusalem," because they are fleeing Jerulsalem, scene of despair--"anywhere but here." Like fair-weather sports fans who leave early, the two disciples left Jerusalem before the story was over, missing the risen Savior. But he came to them, and when they lost their spiritual blindness and recognized their Lord, they returned with good news.
