The Son, the Spirit and the Scripture

Re: Verse reading – Luke 24:13-35 (day one)
My favorite Bible story.  Ok, one of them.  After the resurrection, but before the truth becomes clear, two men (disciples) are traveling from Jerusalem to Emmaus.  Small town.  7 miles away.  Suburb.  Jesus appears to them and supernaturally prevents them from recognizing Him.  Why?  Because He has an important lesson to teach them.  As they walk, He explains His own story using nothing but Bible to do so.  Moses.  All the prophets.  Carefully and passionately He points out the Spirit’s witness to the Son through the Scripture. Later they describe the experience.  “Were not our hearts burning within us while He talked with us on the road and opened the Scriptures to us?”  This is our task!  This is the kind of church we want to be. Bibles open.  Hearts burning.  Spirit speaking.  The most powerful and enduring testimony that Jesus is alive!  Better even than a personal, physical appearance?  Apparently so.  Son!  Spirit!  Scripture!
