Jesus broke bread with the disciples on the Road to Emmaus, something
happened. Jesus had spent much time
explaining to them from the Scriptures why it was that the Son of Man had to
come and die and on the third day be raised from the dead. Jesus was giving, I’m sure, the perfect Bible
study – but after the study, they still did not realize fully Who it was Who
was teaching them.
then, following the Word, He gave thanks and broke the bread – and then and
there they understood it was the Lord who was with them.
Word and Table. Word and Sacrament. Word and Action. These are the two proofs that go
together. These are the means the Holy
Spirit uses to impart faith and to strengthen that faith. You have declared “Christ is risen, Christ is
risen indeed.” Now come and taste and
see how good that resurrection is. Come
and welcome to Jesus Christ.
