Bible Study

Don’t just take our word for it . . . take His! We would encourage you to spend time examining the following Scriptures that shaped this sermon: Luke 24:13-35.

Sermon Notes

What is the process by which Jesus reveals himself to a disciple? In the story of the two disciples on the Road to Emmaus, Jesus engages them in three ways:

  1. In their pain – “counselor Jesus”
  2. With the Scriptures – “teacher Jesus”
  3. At a table – “host Jesus”
    1. invitation
    2. reversal of roles
    3. community

Sermon Application

  • What “activates” Jesus’ compassion?
  • What is a Christ-center hermeneutic?
  • Where do you most consistently meet Jesus (pain, Scripture, community)?
  • Have you had an experience of pain, struggle, or difficultly that provided the opportunity for Jesus to show up?
  • What is your practice for engaging Scripture?
  • What does offering Jesus an “invitation” look like?
  • Why is community important for meeting with Jesus?
