Guest at Dinner

Rumors that Jesus' body could not be found were swirling among the followers of Jesus. Could it be resurrection? What was going on?

In early afternoon, two men were making there way back to a village called Emmaus. Another traveler joins them and hears their questions. He has some ideas they haven't thought of. He mentions Scriptures to them like Isaiah 53 and others that could be taken to mean that the Messiah would die for the sins of his people. Did not Psalm 16 say that God would not let the body of his Messiah decay?

They invited the mysterious man for supper, and as he broke the bread, they immediately recognized who he was!
