Luke 24:33-34 (NLT)
33 And within the hour they were on their way back to Jerusalem. There they found the eleven disciples and the others who had gathered with them, 34 who said, “The Lord has really risen! He appeared to Peter. ”
TIME OF DAY:
Later in the day, late afternoon.
The sun (unseen, low in the sky) illuminates this scene & is entering the room via the window, casting shadows to the left of the figures.
From left to right: Simon/Peter, John (son of Zebedee & brother of James), doctor Luke, James/Cleopas (son of Alphaeus).
This scene uses the same background as Acts 01 – Matthias replaces Judas – Scene 01 – Simon/Peter speaks, since it is set in the same place.
This is a simple scene, showing Simon/Peter beginning to speak to the other disciples & believers in an upper room where they all met together.
Out of the window we can see a view across the city of Jerusalem. Typically Hebrew architecture included narrow windows, which allowed ventilation, but kept out intruders. I don’t think large, open windows were a feature employed. However, I wanted to give a view over the city of Jerusalem, so I have included a large open window in this picture.
James has his hands raised in praise of God & doctor Luke is telling the other disciples of their encounter with the resurrected Jesus in Emmaus. We can only see 2 of the eleven disciples in this scene, the others are nearby, but out of view.
Here is the scene without the figures in the foreground.
