On the road to Emmaus

Posted 14 Oct 2009

Yesterday I completed the cartoon On the road to Emmaus, where 2 disciples meet & talk to the resurrected Jesus. The scene is set late in the day, towards sunset, with the sun behind the viewer, bathing the 3 figures in yellow light. The road is seen behind the figures. Jesus (on the right) is beginning to explain the Old Testament prophesies regarding Himself, to the 2 disciples. At this point in the story they do not recognise Jesus, as He seems to be able to hide His identity from people, only later in the story does He “open their eyes” so that they know who He is. This is the scripture that tells that part of the story…

Luke 24:28-31 (NLT)
By this time they were nearing Emmaus and the end of their journey. Jesus would have gone on, but they begged him to stay the night with them, since it was getting late. So he went home with them. As they sat down to eat, he took a small loaf of bread, asked God’s blessing on it, broke it, then gave it to them. Suddenly, their eyes were opened, and they recognized him. And at that moment he disappeared!
