To Emmaus . . . and back again

Two disciples (Cleopas and one unnamed) of Jesus were walking from Jerusalem to Emmaus (about 8 miles NW) on the day that Jesus rose from the dead. As they traveled, a man joined them—the resurrected Jesus, although they did not recognize Him. The man asked, “What is this conversation that you are holding with each other as you walk?” (Luke 24:17).

The two disciples were surprised that the man had not heard of the recent events that had Jerusalem in turmoil. They proceeded to tell the stranger of Jesus’ crucifixion and the report of His empty tomb. Jesus responded, “‘How foolish you are, and how slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken! Did not the Christ have to suffer these things and then enter his glory?’ And beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, he explained to them what was said in all the Scriptures concerning himself.” (Luke 24:25-27).

So, as they walked, Jesus taught what the Old Testament had predicted about Himself. When they arrived in Emmaus that evening, the two disciples stopped to eat, and they asked Jesus to join them. He did, and as He broke the bread and blessed the meal, “their eyes were opened” (verse 31), and they recognized Him. Jesus then vanished.

Their response? Luke reports, “They got up and returned at once to Jerusalem. There they found the Eleven and those with them, assembled together and saying, ‘It is true! The Lord has risen’” (verses 33-34).

On the road to Emmaus, Jesus gave a lesson on the prophecies of the Old Testament which were fulfilled in His death and resurrection, making connections from Scripture to the events they had recently experienced.

The disciples’ reaction to Jesus’ lesson was one of deep conviction of the truth of what He was teaching. “Were not our hearts burning within us while he talked?” they ask each other (verse 32). Their physical eyes were blinded to the identity of Jesus, but their eyes of faith were being opened as Jesus opened the Scriptures to them.

Following this account, Jesus appears to His other disciples, removing all doubt that He was alive. Jesus had promised that He would show Himself to those who love Him (John 14:21), and this is exactly what He does on the road to Emmaus.

The story of the disciples on the Emmaus Road is important for several reasons. It provides an emphasis on the Old Testament prophecies related to Jesus, evidence regarding an additional appearance of Jesus, and a connection regarding the many eyewitnesses of the resurrected Jesus.

Luke 24 is often seen as a model of the journey that Jesus makes with many of us today, as He opens our eyes, points us to the Word, and reveals Himself along life’s walk as the resurrected Savior and Lord.

“the Holy Scriptures, . . . are able to make you wise for salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.” 2 Timothy 3:15-17


One aspect of the Road to Emmaus account stands out to me as a central part of this incident, Luke 24:27: “And beginning at Moses and all the Prophets, He explained to them in all the Scriptures the things concerning Himself.”

Alfred Edersheim (1825 – 1889) was a preeminent Biblical scholar who counted 456 Old Testament passages which are considered Messianic by the Rabbis before the time of Christ. These 456 contain the passages in the Old Testament applied to the Messiah or to Messianic times in the most ancient Jewish writings. They are distributed as 75 from The Pentateuch, 243 from The Prophets, and 138 from The Writings, and supported by more than 558 separate quotations from Rabbinic writings.

According to Arnold Fruchtenbaum, a modern day noted Biblical scholar, there are about 200 to 400 (depending on who’s counting) Old Testament Messianic prophesies.

Many things in the Old Testament about the coming of the Messiah were not fully explained, and some predictions seem, but only seem, to contradict themselves. Some of the Jewish rabbis even thought there would be two Messiahs: Messiah ben Joseph, a humble, suffering Messiah and Messiah ben David, a conquering, reigning Messiah. No one thought the same Messiah would come twice, once to suffer and die, and once to reign.

At the time of Jesus, the expectation was for a Messiah who would rescue Israel from foreign domination. He would conquer and rule.  When Jesus didn’t declare Himself as King and start to raise an army to restore Israel, many that followed Him departed.

Jesus as conquering King restoring Israel? That didn’t happen 2,000 years ago, but . . .

It’s all in God’s Word for those that have eyes to see, ears to hear and an open mind to understand.

More on Messianic prophesies . . . next week.

On this day and every day –

God is in Control
. . . and His Grace is Sufficient, so . . .
Keep Looking Up

Hopefully, every Sunday, we can find something here that will build us up a little . . . give us a smile . . . and add some joy or peace, very much needed in all our lives.

“This day is holy to the Lord your God;
do not mourn nor weep.” . . .
“Go your way, eat the fat, drink the sweet,
and send portions to those for whom nothing is prepared;
for this day is holy to our Lord.
Do not sorrow,
for the joy of the Lord is your strength.”

Excellent 11 minute video about anti lockdowners, the truth and history.


That was excellent. I like her calm way of speaking truth.


That was very well done.

I just can’t believe that it is even a little bit necessary, and yet here we are.



Sadie Slays

WOW! I’ve mentioned a few times here that a close relative of mine had to have emergency eye surgery after receiving his second Moderna shot. He had a detached retina in each eye. I wonder if Crenshaw was vaccinated.

Last edited 27 days ago by Sadie Slays

Interesting, Sadie – did not think of that – however – people would probably not ask since he has been wearing that patch for a long time – sorry to hear about your relative – will pray for him/her.

Sadie Slays

While I appreciate the prayers, I am happy to report that the surgery and follow-up care were successful. Everything is pointing to a full recovery. I was hesitant at first to connect my relative’s plight to the vaccine, but then Wolfmoon made the point that some COVID patients experience eye problems, and then there was a viral story about a woman going blind after getting vaccinated. I don’t know for sure if the vaccine caused my relative’s eye problems, but I think it’s at least possible.


Strange, Sadie – these ‘experimental’ vaccines are causing all sorts of problems – in some cases – death – in a video I watched earlier today – a 24-year-old had some frightening adverse reactions – and yet – she was still encouraging her friends to take the vaccine (?) – am having a hard time understanding why people are equating this vaccine to freedom – when it is the exact opposite.


and yet – she was still encouraging her friends to take the vaccine (?)

IMO, this is the ultimate evidence of being brainwashed. First, people don’t think or research, they just take the vaccine. Then, when they have a bad reaction, they still don’t think or research, and still tell others to get it.

We’re not dealing with Ebola or some disease that almost guarantees death if you get it. In a lot of these cases, if the patient had gotten COVID, their illness would have been much less severe than the vaccine was.


Oh, yes, Truths – agree wholeheartedly


By the way, I was looking for the X22 Report. This is what Dave says on Telegram:

X22 Report Official
Report will be uploaded later tonight, electric and internet down, eta 12:00 am set


Yes, Truths – it was a note added to his website as well – Thanks!!!


YW! I didn’t see anything about the time on his website.


At the very top of the page in blue print…


Completely missed that; thanks.


Whenever he will be late with a report – or there will be ‘no’ report – he posts a notice there – no report on Friday this time around.


“We’re not dealing with Ebola or some disease that almost guarantees death if you get it.”


This is even worse.

We’re dealing with complete idiots

And there’s no cure for that, either.

Fortunately the idiocy is not contagious though.

Unless you start wearing a mask… 😂 🤣 😂

While this is true, the “preventative” does. Every whistleblower has said that eventually – maybe years down the line – the people who actually get the real “vaccines” WILL have their lives shortened.

I don’t like where my thinking leads on that one, that’s for sure.

I posted somewhere in here today about retina/vision problems connected to the vaccines. The VAERS immunization injury website shows a lot of those problems.

There’s a correlation. I am convinced.


VAERS has at least 1,281 eye or vision reports after Covid vaccine.

Admittedly I searched on a handful of isues. Not know what I was really looking for. Other than eye / vision issues after folks got the Covid vaccine.

Searches are easy to do. Even more so if one knows what they are looking for. Which I do NOT.

Sadie Slays

Thank you!


No kidding, they are not easy! I did some on this topic today, too. I had to download two databases and compare them by number. What a pain!

You’d think they don’t really want us to have the information or something 😉

Wolf Moon

Sadie – check out this conversation on page one that links back to a conversation on the previous open thread, too. Lots of relevant discussion.

Sadie Slays

Thank you!

Sadie Slays

Also, I have to laugh that the first comment on this page is a video with a giant eye, and then directly under it is Dan Crenshaw’s eye news. Hivemind!


SMH, Sadie!!!


Why Are People Taking A Vaccine? ARE WE HEADING FOR ANOTHER NUREMBERG TRIAL?april 11, 2021 the marshall report

If a vaccine will not keep you from getting a virus, and it will not keep you from wearing a mask, social distancing, or free you of inhumane mandates, why are you taking it and ask why are they mandating that you do take it?

After the Christians tore down the fence that the government had built around the Edmonton church, the police sent in 200 heavily-armed riot police. That’s the church building you see there. This is China stuff, Iran stuff. But it’s happening in Canada.


Look at all those shameful cops.

All Nazis.

Every last one of them, without excuse.


Its just awful, embarrassing , and sad.


Protestors, cops and media combined barely dented the numbers of shoppers at the Calgery Walmart Supercenter in Edmonton today.


Its unofficially official!

Vernon Jones is running for GA governor.

I certainly hope he is MAGA on the issues that count!

He is a fantastic speaker. Son and H heard him in DC on 1/6 and I met him, had a long (for those types of situations) time to talke with him after hearing him speak the 2 Mondays later. He has a vision and a passion. Hope he stays true and strong.

Am I the last person to know that the Babylon Bee has a youtube channel?!


Nope. That must’ve been me. 😂


1.2 black young adult pulled over and shot by police in Minneapolis or St Paul today. His mother says the girlfriend claims it was over air fresheners.
No joke. And now they are trying to riot.
Im sorry but the way they grunt and move around in this video is contributing to the stereotypes they dont want.

Get the Nat Guard up.


Dems are doing everything possible to keep them on the plantation.

People with low emotional IQ, poor verbal skills, and lack of self-awareness do not have a lot going for them when it comes to opportunities for betterment. And if they don’t learn from past mistakes, and from the mistakes of others, they stay in a disadvantageous position.


Yes, and if you try to better yourself, youre acting white.


All that is happening regarding Floyd is just teaching them to act this way.

They are the victims of the BLM and antifa astro turf “movements”

I hope they release the body and car cam’s footage quickly to nip the protests/riots in the bud.

Evidently he was being arrested and reentered the car.
Officer had reason to think he was armed and going to attack/shoot?
IDK … waiting on more details

Looks like they are being given room to express themselves … allowed to completely destroy tax payer funded patrol cars and harrass officers on duty.

When this is allowed then what will the mob do next? Only escalates from there.
Disgusting to see this behavior allowed and tolerated


Antifa types showed up.
