Luke 24:14-15 – And they talked together of all these things which had happened. So it was, while they conversed and reasoned that Jesus Himself drew near and went with them.
These two persons (presumably men) have no idea who Jesus was when he approached them. He must have had normal human features (not superhuman), and they do not even catch on to his identity. They are aware, however, of recent events in Jerusalem. They recite to Jesus a brief summary of his earthly career (“a prophet mighty in word and deed”), his passion, and his death.
They are dejected and sad.
Jesus knows that they have taken the wrong path regarding His death, yet Jesus is not giving up on them. Jesus told His disciples that He would rise up, and despite this, they still are sad, but Jesus has not given up on them.
The disciples heard Jesus say that He would rise from the dead, they got the good news yet they refused to believe. In our life we have things which are seen and things which are unseen. When the Good News is given to us do we believe it and act accordingly or do we continue on our own way?
Luke 24:17 —— And He said to them, “What kind of conversation is this that you have with one another as you walk and are sad?”
This was the most joyful day since Jesus had been raised from the dead. Yet here are two disciples sad over His death. But Jesus does not condemn them. If we do not care to know the truth as written in God’s Word, Satan will coerce and convince us to believe the opposite is true, thus ruining our peace and joy.
2 Corinthians 1:3-4 —– Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulation that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.
Is it easy to praise God when we are sick? We understand through our physical senses, how difficult and tormenting this sickness is, so how can we be having a good day. It is good because 2 Corinthians 1:3-4 says that the Father will comfort us in the affliction that we are going through,. If we believe this we will be joyful. When we learn to overcome our troubles and go out and teach others to triumph over the devil , that ia when we will enjoy the peace and joy that comes from believing the truth.
The Resurrection gives my life meaning, direction and the opportunity to start over no matter what my circumstances.
