On the Road with Jesus

This Sunday we will read the second part of Jesus’ travels (incognito) with his disciples. The first instance is on the road to Emmaus when he is merely a fellow traveler – a storyteller, perhaps. But when he picked up the bread and broke it and gave it to his friends, they knew Him immediately – and their hearts burn within them. The second appearance involved the stimulating question, “Does a ghost need to eat?” Jesus proves the reality of the resurrection by scarfing down a piece of broiled fish on the beach. The disciples knew that ghosts don’t eat – but real men do. Think about it – here is another compelling proof for the resurrection! Happy Eastertide to all.
