BIBLE PASSAGE - Luke 24.28-35

Why did Jesus seem to want to go on further than Emmaus? Discuss your ideas.

_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

Notice that the 2 disciples really wanted Jesus to stay - they 'begged' him to. Why do you think that was?

_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

Point to remember: Jesus is not unwilling to stay with us - but we sometimes have to ask him

When inside the house with the food prepared, Jesus suddenly takes up the position as the host (although not his house) and breaks the bread! Remind you of another Gospel event with Jesus? Where do you find it?

_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

(Answer: Luke 9.16, 22.19, Matthew 8.6, half of John!!)

The Bible says that THEN the disciples' eyes were opened to recognise Jesus. And, true to form, Jesus disappeared! What's all that about? Ideas?

_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

See the transformation in the disciples: one minute they are sad, next they're well happy! One minute they are saying it's late, we need to get in the house - to charging the 7 miles back to Jerusalem! What a transformation Jesus brings.

Have you had an experience of the Holy Spirit touching your life? Explain, write it down or talk about it with the other people if you want..

_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

Point to remember: One way of getting God's fire burning in your life is to get into the Word of God and letting Jesus speak through the Holy Spirit

When the disciples returned to Jerusalem and met with the rest of the followers, they talked about Jesus appearing to them. It must have been an amazing atmosphere!! The Gospels are, of course, Good News

Why not now share stories of encouragement with each other. Stories of where God's worked in your life or the lives of others in the world, history. Also encourage each other and big each other up. It is, Good News.
