Bible story: On the road to Emmaus

Creative activities based on the Bible story of On the road to Emmaus

In Mark 16: 12 and Luke 24: 13 - 27 we find the Emmaus Bible story of two disciples who were walking to a village called Emmaus on the day of Jesus' resurrection. As they walked, they discussed the events of the previous days, including Jesus' crucifixion and the reports that he had risen from the dead.

Suddenly, Jesus himself appeared and walked with them, but they did not recognize him. Jesus explained to them the meaning of the Scriptures and how they pointed to him. When they arrived at Emmaus, Jesus sat down to eat with them, and as he broke bread, their eyes were opened, and they recognized him. The story of Emmaus is a testament to the power of faith and the presence of Christ in our lives.
