A SERMON OUTLINE I WOULD LIKE TO HAVE
On resurrection morning, Cleopas and his friend were walking along talking about Jesus and all that had recently transpired in Jerusalem. Jesus came up and began walking with them, but they did not recognize him.
“What are you discussing together as you walk along?” he asked.
“About Jesus of Nazareth,” they responded, then began to process with him all that they had heard.
“We had hoped that he was the One who was going to redeem Israel.”
Luke says, “And beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, he explained to them what was said in all the Scriptures concerning himself.”
Now that’s a sermon outline I would like to have – Jesus referring to the Hebrew Scriptures that refer to Him!
When Cleopas and his friend arrived in Emmaus, Jesus acted as though he would leave them, but they urged him to stay with them.
So he went in with them. Not until he “broke bread” with them, did they recognize him. “Then their eyes were opened.”
Lord, open our eyes that we may see!
