As a youngster in Bermuda, which is about 20 miles in length, we used to joke about the fact that anything spoken of in Somerset could be learned about in St. George in less time that it took you to get to the other end of the Island.

Keep in mind, that was during the days of a very limited radio, telephone or a next day newspaper.

In Luke 24 we learn how two men, going to a village seven miles away, (Emmaus) from Jerusalem, on that very day, were discussing the events that had taken place relating to the resurrection.  How swiftly such news travels!

Granted, what we are reading about in Luke 24 is worthy of rapid distribution. That confrontation by the Savior had to be a historically significant moment.

They were endeavoring to inform the Savior, while He was opening the floodgates of truth concerning His manifestation and redemptive fulfillment.

Another exciting moment is having been invited by them we read in verse 30: “When He had reclined at the table with them, He took the bread and blessed it, and breaking it, He began giving to them.  Then their eyes were opened and they recognized Him; and He vanished from their sight.”

I dare you to be so bold as those brothers to follow up on that portion of the Scriptures and honestly ask the Lord to open to you the truth concerning His Messiah-ship, the truth about that death, burial and resurrection, along with His promised indwelling of the Holy Spirit!
