Commentary on the Gospel of

Bible Diary - CMF

 

What we have in today’s reading is an example of how Christians should read the Scriptures.  The Lord is with them unawares.  He teases out their fears and doubts and disillusionment… He calls their attention to what they had overlooked or misunderstood.  Finally they “recognize him in the breaking of bread.”  This is a phrase that Luke repeats as if to make sure we notice it.  Disciples in every century have continued to recognize him in “the breaking of bread.”
