Jesus reveals himself at Emmaus
We now come to the last and fourth part of our presentation of the Life of Jesus. Here we see the Risen Lord, whom his disciples fail to recognize, as he walks with them on the road to Emmaus. The disciples, who are deeply depressed by the death of their Lord, invite their fellow journeyman to eat a meal with them. He tells them stories, which help them to understand the meaning of the life and death of Jesus. Finally the Risen Lord shares a meal with them, and in the act of breaking bread with them, they at last recognize him as the Guru whom they thought they had lost.
