Slideshow for Second Sunday after Easter

Road to Emmaus and Supper at Emmaus in Art

The story is simple. Two disciples are returning home from Jerusalem on that first Easter. They had heard the news that Jesus had risen from the dead—or so some women had reported

A stranger—a very knowledgable stranger—joins them and explains the day’s events in light of scripture.

The travelers invite the stranger to stay with them. He breaks bread with them. They recognize him as the Lord.

Then Jesus vanishes.

The two disciples backtrack to Jerusalem that very hour. They have their own news to share.

The first two scenes— Jesus walking with the two disciples and Jesus breaking bread with them—are favorites with artists. The last scene—the return to Jerusalem—is rarely depicted.

How would you imagine that scene?
