In last week’s Gospel, and in today’s Gospel Lk 24:13-35, we begin to see how the disciples came to believe that Jesus had risen from the dead. Last week we introduced two of Jesus’ disciples on the road to Emmaus
We can probably imagine the feelings of the two disciples. They are leaving their community in Jerusalem. Their friend Jesus has been crucified, and they have lost hope. They are trying to make sense of what has occurred.
Jesus himself approached the two men, but they do not recognize him. Jesus asks them what they are discussing, and invites them to share their interpretation of the events surrounding his crucifixion and death. When the two disciples have done so, Jesus offers his own interpretation of his crucifixion and resurrection, citing Jewish Scripture. In that encounter, we find the model for our Liturgy of the Word—what we do when we gather as a community for the Eucharist. We reflect upon our life experiences and interpret them considering Scripture.
