Meeting the Risen One

Wednesday April 3, 2024

Theme: “Meeting the Risen One

Text: Luke 24:13-27

13. And behold, that same day two disciples went to a village called Emmaus, which was sixty furlongs from Jerusalem; 14. and they talked about everything that had happened. 15. While they were talking and disputing, Jesus came and went with them. 16. But their eyes were hindered from recognizing him. 17. He said to them: What do you talk about as you walk, that you are sad? 18. One of them, named Cleopas, answered him: Are you the only one who, staying in Jerusalem, does not know what has happened there these days? - 19. What? he told them. -And they answered him, What happened concerning Jesus of Nazareth, who was a prophet mighty in deed and word before God and before all the people, 20. and how the chief priests and our magistrates delivered him up for condemned him to death and crucified him. 21. We hoped that it would be he who would deliver Israel; but with all this, this is the third day that these things have happened. 22. It is true that some women among us have greatly surprised us; having gone early in the morning to the tomb 23. and not having found his body, they came to say that angels appeared to them and announced that he was alive. 24. Some of those who were with us went to the tomb, and found it as the women had spoken; but they did not see him. 25. Then said Jesus unto them, O men of no understanding, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken! 26. Was it not necessary for Christ to suffer these things, and enter into his glory? 27. And beginning with Moses and with all the prophets, he explained to them in all the Scriptures the things concerning himself.

Let's remember:

Initially, these disciples already had a big problem regarding the lack of knowledge of the true nature of Jesus; they only took him for a prophet powerful in works and words before God and before all the people. His divinity, his nature as Son of God, Creator of the world and savior of humanity as messiah was not revealed to them. These disciples have the sadness of not having seen the promise of the resurrection fulfilled while they are together with the promise already fulfilled: ignorance and blindness. Jesus, seeing that the disciples were going in the wrong direction, followed them to bring them back to Him. Before the encounter with the resurrected revealed, the way of thinking, the speech, the expectations, the understanding of things, and even the faith in short everything is pejorative and unstable. If the risen has not yet revealed himself to us, we remain in an evasive position unable to open our hearts to the voice and thoughts of God. Before the resurrected one reveals himself to us, we are men without understanding, and whose hearts are slow to believe everything that the prophets have said. Have a great Wednesday. Amen
