Luke 24: 13-35, 38

The risen Christ walks alongside two disillusioned disciples and takes them on a ‘walk’ through the Scriptures. He helps them to see things in a new light. Familiar passages take on a new meaning. The old becomes new. Yet, although God has certainly done a “new thing” (!), it is a fulfilment of all that He has promised, everything that was foretold and consistent with His purposes. In Christ there is a new creation that redeems the old. In Christ “all things” are reconciled. Cleopas and friend begin to see the part they can play in God’s BIG STORY!
