Welcome! “What is this conversation...?” The risen Lord Jesus Christ appears to sorrowful and confused Cleopas and his friend on the road to Emmaus. Their sorrow and Jesus’ own purpose keep them from recognizing Jesus. They are sorrowing on Easter Sunday evening because their dear Master and Lord is crucified, dead and buried. They had heard a rumor that He’s risen from death, but they simply can’t bring themselves to believe it. Dead is dead in this world. Jesus sets them straight! “Beginning with Moses and all the prophets, He interpreted to them in all the Scriptures the things concerning Himself.” Jesus sets you and me straight, too! In His Word and His Sacraments He reveals Himself as the One and only Savior and Lord as He did for Cleopas. Crucified for the forgiveness of our sins and raised for our justification before God. May we ever praise Him and with burning hearts share His Gospel with the world.
