ON THE ROAD TO EMMAUS - REVISED - Luke 24 (MTV)

Luke 24 (MTV)

Now that very same day, two of them were on their way to a village called Emmaus, seven miles from Jerusalem, and they were talking together about all that had happened. And it happened that as they were talking together and discussing it, Jesus himself came up and walked by their side; but their eyes were prevented from recognising him.

He said to them, 'What are all these things that you are discussing as you walk along?' They stopped, their faces downcast.

Then one of them, called Cleopas, answered him, 'You must be the only person staying in Jerusalem who does not know the things that have been happening there these last few days.'

He asked, 'What things?'

They answered, 'All about our god Jesus. Our god was crucified and died. We've had no-one running the universe or holding things together since he died. We kept praying to him but got no answer because the line to heaven was dead. We couldn't talk to God because we have have to go through our dead god Jesus to do so. Our god died and we didn't give him a decent funeral service in a church. Now we're going to either call Jesus NONImmanuel which means god ISN'T with us ... OR ... wonderful corpse, putrefying god. Hey, on the positive side, we've got a catchy little Jesus Jingle we're gonna use in church next week. It's sung to Our God Reigns:
Our god died
Our god died
Our god died
Our god died
Do you think it'll make the Top 40 Jesus Jingle Hit Parade?"
