On the Emmaus Road
Michael Wilburn • April 1, 2018
APPLICATION QUESTIONS: 1. Why does Luke describe the two companions on the Emmaus road as “looking sad”? What was their disappointment? What circumstances cause you to be disappointed with God? 2. What does it mean that “their eyes were kept from recognizing him” (Lk 24:16)? Were they blinded by emotion or blinded by God? 3. Why does Jesus ask Cleopas and his companion, “What things” (Lk 24:19)? Didn’t Jesus already know? 4. Why does Jesus appeal to OT Scripture to substantiate the resurrection before revealing himself to them? Wasn’t his physical presences enough? How does this help you weigh the value of Scripture verses personal experience?
The Empty Tomb

APPLICATION QUESTIONS: • Is the “first day of the week” referring to Sunday? How important is it for Christians to worship on the first day of the week? • Where in the Gospels can you find the “remember how he told you” (Lk 24:6) conversation to which the angels refer? • Do you believe Luke 24:6, “He is not here, but has risen”? What are the implications of this belief for you? • How can a Christian sustain and practice “marveling” (vs. 12) the resurrection?
