Sunday April 11, 2021 | The Emmaus Disciples 

The whole Bible is about Jesus. When Adam and Eve sinned, God began working out His plan to send Jesus to rescue people from sin. All of the Old Testament points forward to Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection—the time when Jesus would bring God’s promised salvation for sinners.

This Week’s Lesson: The Emmaus Disciples

  • Bible Passage: Luke 24;
  • Story Point: The whole bible is about Jesus.
  • Key Passage: John 11:25 
  • Big Picture Question: Where is Jesus now? Jesus is in heaven.

On the day Jesus rose from the dead, two of His disciples were walking down the road to a village called Emmaus. They were talking about everything that had happened. As they talked, Jesus came up and began walking with them. Jesus’ disciples did not know that the man was Jesus. “What are you talking about?” Jesus asked. The disciples stopped walking. They looked sad. One of them said, “Are You the only person who doesn’t know what has happened?” The two told Him about Jesus: Jesus had said and done many powerful things. The religious leaders had killed Him. They had hoped that Jesus was the Messiah God had promised to send. Of course, Jesus already knew everything they were telling Him. The disciples explained that some of the women from their group went to Jesus’ tomb but it was empty. They saw angels who told them that Jesus is alive. “Don’t you believe what the prophets said?” Jesus asked. “They said this is what had to happen to the Messiah.” Then, starting with the words Moses and all the prophets wrote long ago, Jesus helped His disciples understand what God’s Word taught about Himself. Jesus went to the village with the disciples and stayed with them. When they sat around a table to eat, Jesus took bread and thanked God for it. Then He broke the bread into pieces and gave it to them. Then the disciples knew! This was Jesus! All of a sudden, Jesus disappeared. The two said to each other, “Didn’t we feel warm inside when He was talking with us on the road and explaining God’s Word to us?” Jesus’ disciples went back to Jerusalem right away. They found the others who had followed Jesus and told them what had happened. Jesus is alive!

Christ Connection: The whole Bible is about Jesus. All along, God had a plan to send His Son to rescue people from sin. No matter what part of the Bible we read, it all points to what Jesus did for us in His living, dying, and coming alive again.
