Jesus is Emmanuel, which means “God with us.” He was born in a manger, died on a cross, and came back to life.
Why did God come down to Earth to be with us in the first place? Why did He die, and how is He alive today?
Today we discover how even Jesus’ disciples who knew him personally had questions about His life, death, and resurrection. After Jesus’ death, He returned to Earth and walked with them, answering many of their questions about God’s rescue plan for the world.
Even though He died, Jesus’ return demonstrated how He is Emmanuel — God with us. He is still alive today and is close to us even though we cannot see Him. Please take the time to read the Scripture passage of Jesus on the walk to Emmaus: Luke 24:13-34.
This is a very big story that stirs hearts.
