ROAD TO EMMAUS SERMON OUTLINES

by Bob Wickizer

Like Mark, the disciples were walking along the road wondering what it all meant. They had heard the good rabbi preach and were excited about the possibilities. They were in the crowd that Sunday when he came riding into Jerusalem on a donkey. They spread their palm branches and garments on the ground to make his path smooth the same way their ancestors greeted kings coming back from victorious battle. They encounter a...

Of all the appearances of the risen Christ, none has a stronger hold upon Christendom than this one. It has brought light to many darkened hearts, and comfort to innumerable souls. Christ revealed Himself to Mary in the garden, and that will always be precious to the church. He revealed Himself to the Eleven, and to Thomas, and to Peter and to John beside the Sea of Galilee. But this meeting on the Emmaus road, with its revelation of the...

Broken Hearts ‘‘The chief priests and our rulers handed him over to be sentenced to death, and they crucified him; but we had hoped that he was the one who was going to redeem Israel’’ (Luke 24:20-21). The disciples didn’t understand that suffering precedes glory. Burning Hearts ‘‘He said to them, ‘How foolish you are, and how slow of heart to believe all that the prophets...

Christian writer Philip Yancey wrote a book which he titled, Disappointment With God in which he addresses three questions: Is God unfair? Is God silent? Is God hidden? because there are times in our lives when we lose a loved one that we feel God has been unfair in allowing them to die, that God is silent about why they died and God is hidden from hearing their prayers. In the midst of disappointment which leads to discouragement and lost...

We begin a brand new series of messages today that we will be talking about over the next several weeks. And I do that on Easter because I hope that many of you will come back and want to hear the rest of the series of messages. Today we start a series of messages entitled, "Renewing Your Passion For Life." Jesus' passion caused Him to go to the…

The opening words of v.13 links this story with the entire Easter event. ‘‘That same day’’ ties the story to Jesus’ death and resurrection (the third day) .21. The story of Jesus’ appearance on the road to Emmaus is the first of three resurrection appearances reported in Luke and is unique to his Gospel. After Jesus died on the cross and was raised from the dead three days later, He spent forty days between His resurrection and the ascension back...

Jesus Christ is often encountered in the most unlikely places at the most unexpected times. He is not only our guide to tomorrow and our ticket to eternity, but our companion on life's road through the wilderness of bewilderment. He is the essential clue necessary to interpret the mystery of life. Do you ever feel like you are all alone? Does loneliness ever engulf you? Have you ever looked at one of these street scenes from a major...

Have you ever had an ‘aha’ moment where you just ‘get it’ where before there was no understanding? A moment, perhaps in math, reading, relationship, where the truth just smacks you square between the eyes, and you wonder why you haven’t seen it that way before? There is this amazing story in Luke that, to me, is one of the most compelling revelations of the heart of God! To get the full story, the stage needs to be set for the story to unfold...

How often in our life are we focusing on what is before us instead of what we need. These men on the road to Emmaus were focusing on the events of what had just taken place that weekend. It was the news, the talk of the town. So much so that when a stranger approached them and entered in to the conversation. 17 He asked them, ‘‘What are you discussing together as you walk along?’’ They stood still, their faces downcast. 18 One of them...

Our scripture is the story of two people. We don’t know much about them but we know they are sad people. We’re not sure whether they were two men, or a man and a woman. All we know is that one of them was named ‘‘Cleopas.’’ Whoever they are, they’re utterly despondent. Cleopas and another, who were joined by Jesus who had been cruelty crucified but they did not believe He had...

Imagine if you had been in a coma for four months... then awoke... the first thing you are concerned about would reveal a great deal about you... right? Two days before the November elections, Elizabeth Moreno was driving to the Democratic Party headquarters in Manassas to pick up a list of addresses. She was planning...

Years ago the producers of Sesame Street faced a dilemma. Will Lee, the actor who played Mr. Hooper, passed away, and the producers were faced with how to communicate the concept of death to the 10 million children (most of whom are under 6 years of age) who watched the show.Child psychologists suggested they...

Our story begins today with two men walking along a road toward a town about seven miles northwest of Jerusalem called Emmaus. These two men had been followers of Christ. They had heard Him speak, they had watched Him heal…they had seen Him die. They had heard reports from the women that the tomb was...

Good morning, brothers and sisters. My name is Cleopas. I am a Jewish man who lived during the time of Jesus of Nazareth. The Bible doesn't share anything about me, but that's okay with me. My personal background is not important; what is important is my personal experience. I want to share with you an...

Before they their departure from Jerusalem, they had heard the reports about the tomb of Jesus being empty. But the two men don't believe a resurrection has happened. That's impossible! They once had great hopes for what Jesus could do. Now he's dead, and they are left feeling disillusioned and disappointed...

As you are turning to Luke 24, I want to tell you the story of a third grade boy named Philip who was born a special child. On one Easter Sunday morning during Sunday School, the teacher brought Leggs Pantyhose containers, the kind that look like large eggs … like this. Each child received one and was told to go...

Many of us want to question the story - How can a dead man come back to life? … What exactly happened to Jesus in the tomb? … What kind of body is a resurrection-body? But the story reverses direction and questions us: "Why do you look for the living among the dead?" (verse 5)."Why are you so slow to...

How do we respond to important news? When spinach had been found contaminated, local restaurants pulled fresh spinach from their salad options. When certain airplanes were found to display certain safety irregularity, flights were cancelled by the FAA for inspection. When Katrina ravaged the...

For the past few weeks, I've been preaching on the topic of CSI-Jerusalem. We're Crime Scene Investigators…or more specifically "Cross Scene Investigators". The following story is true. And while it is somewhat morbid it serves to illustrate what I want to say this morning.Several years ago there was an TV news account of...
