The Road From the Tomb

1. Similar to the story of Emmaus, throughout Scripture God often appears in disguise to people.  (See Hebrews 13:2, Genesis 18-19, Judges 13, Matthew 25:31-46).  What does this teach us about God and His ways?  What does this say about the difference between religious “duties” versus Christian calling and lifestyle?  What are some other things we can learn from these “unannounced” visits by God?

2.  Just as he tested the hearts of the two disciples, Christ often tests our hearts.  What are some ways he does this?  Is anyone in the group willing to share a personal testimony in this area?

3. What does it mean to you that the eyes of the disciples were open to recognize Jesus, after he broke the bread and blessed it? 

4.  How does the truth that Christ takes the initiative in seeking a relationship with people encourage you in prayers and testimony with those who are not following Jesus?
