What manner of communications are these that ye have one to another, as ye walk, and are sad? Art thou only a stranger in Jerusalem, and hast not known of the things which are come to pass there in these days? What things? Concerning Jesus of Nazareth, which was a prophet mighty in deed and word before God and all the people: and how the chief priests and our rulers delivered him up to be condemned to death, and have crucified him. But we trusted that it had been he which should have redeemed Israel: and beside all this, to day is the third day since these things were done. Yea, and certain women also of our company made us astonished, which were early at the sepulchre; and when they found not his body, they came, saying, that they had also seen a vision of angels, which said that he was alive.
And certain of them which were with us went to the sepulchre, and found it even so as the women had said: but him they saw not.
O fools, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken: ought not Christ to have suffered these things, and to enter into his glory?
Abide with us: for it is toward evening, and the day is far spent.
Our Father, we offer thanks for Thy bounties. Amen. Amen.
Did not our heart burn within us, while he talked with us by the way, and while he opened to us the scriptures? We must return to Jerusalem this very hour.
