Discipleship Emmaus Framework.pdf
The Road to Emmaus illustrates the process of discipleship formation as revealed by Jesus himself. Two downtrodden disciples set out to Emmaus, talking about the recent events in Jerusalem, namely, the death and resurrection of Jesus. As they were journeying along they were joined by a stranger who gradually reveals to them in stages who he is.
It is Jesus who draws near to them and then accompanies them on their journey. As he does so, he breaks open the Scriptures and finally breaks bread with them. It is only when Jesus connects them with the Last Supper (blessed, broke, gave the bread), that they recognize fully his prescence. From this encounter, they are transformed and go out to share the Good News.
