lyrics

We sometimes think that only the extraordinary and unusual stories qualify as ‘real testimonies’. Paul’s Damascus Road conversion (Acts 9:1-19; Acts 22:1-22; Acts 26:1-29) is in this category. But just as important are the ‘Emmaus Road’ conversions (Luke 24:13-35) where people’s hearts are gradually opened as they encounter Jesus through the ordinary rhythms of Christian discipleship: the Scriptures (24:27,32) and the breaking of bread (24:30-31,35). Perhaps Luke has deliberately left Cleopas’s companion anonymous because he – and all Christians! – can identify with this account!
