Luke 24:13-35. Peter’s challenge is to hear the Bible story with more questions—not just ones that question the facts, more the kind that ask, “How does this relate to me?” “What can I learn from this story today?” “What is God saying to me?” As these bewildered Disciples start home for Emmaus they are deep […]
