The Road to Emmaus
How well do you know the Bible? Perhaps you know a story from here or there...but if given a Bible, could you find it?
Are you familiar with the content between the front and back cover, or even the names of the books found there?
Perhaps we've read some of the New Testament; even if we haven't sat down and read it, we've no doubt heard portions of the Epistles and the Gospels on Sunday mornings. Many of us, however, may not have read (or heard) much out of the Old Testament since we were children (if then). Yet, these "old" texts are exactly how Christ reveals Himself to His disciples, in the Gospel according to St. Luke:
And He (Jesus) said to them (Luke & Cleopas), "O foolish men, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken! Was it not necessary that the Christ should suffer these things and enter into his glory?"
And beginning with Moses and all the prophets, He interpreted to them in all the Scriptures the things concerning Himself.
The "Scriptures" Christ used to show Himself to His disciples are what we now call "The Old Testament."

Come and see!
You'll see Christ (along with the Bible stories you think you remember) in a whole new way!
