14 As they walked along they were talking about everything that had happened. 


Genesis 3:8a

8 When the cool evening breezes were blowing, the man and his wife heard the LORD God walking about in the garden.


Luke 24:15

15 As they talked and discussed these things, Jesus himself suddenly came and began walking with them.



I want Jesus to walk with me
I want Jesus to walk with me
All along my pilgrim journey
I want Jesus to walk with me

In my trial, Lord, walk with me
In my trials, Lord, walk with me
When the shades of life are falling
Lord, I want Jesus to walk with me

In my sorrow, Lord walk with me
In my sorrows, Lord walk with me
When my heart is aching
Lord, I want Jesus to walk with me 

In my troubles, Lord walk with me
In my troubles, Lord walk with me
When my life becomes a burden,
Lord, I want Jesus to walk with me
- Solomon Burke


Luke 24:16

16 But God kept them from recognizing him.


2 Kings 6:16-17
16 “Don’t be afraid!” Elisha told him. “For there are more on our side than on theirs!” 17 Then Elisha prayed, “O LORD, open his eyes and let him see!” The LORD opened the young man’s eyes, and when he looked up, he saw that the hillside around Elisha was filled with horses and chariots of fire.


Luke 24:17a

17a He asked them, “What are you discussing so intently as you walk along?” 


Luke 24:17b

17b They stopped short, sadness written across their faces.


Luke 24:18-19a

18 Then one of them, Cleopas, replied, “You must be the only person in Jerusalem who hasn’t heard about all the things that have happened there the last few days.” 19 “What things?” Jesus asked.


Luke 24:19b

19b “The things that happened to Jesus, the man from Nazareth,” they said. “He was a prophet who did powerful miracles, and he was a mighty teacher in the eyes of God and all the people.


Luke 24:26

26 Wasn’t it clearly predicted that the Messiah would have to suffer all these things before entering his glory?

Luke 24:21
21 We had hoped he was the Messiah who had come to rescue Israel. This all happened three days ago.

1 Peter 1:3 (NKVJ)
3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His abundant mercy has begotten us again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.


Luke 24:22-24

22 “Then some women from our group of his followers were at his tomb early this morning, and they came back with an amazing report. 23 They said his body was missing, and they had seen angels who told them Jesus is alive! 24 Some of our men ran out to see, and sure enough, his body was gone, just as the women had said.”


1 Corinthians 15:1-2

1 Let me now remind you, dear brothers and sisters,  of the Good News I preached to you before. You welcomed it then, and you still stand firm in it. 2 It is this Good News that saves you if you continue to believe the message I told you—unless, of course, you believed something that was never true in the first place.
