New Testament: Luke 24.30–31

To read the Bible in a year, read Luke 24.36–53 on May 5, In the year of our Lord Christ 2023

By Don Ruhl 

After his resurrection, Jesus walked and talked with two men as they were discussing sadly the things concerning Jesus and his death, but their eyes were veiled that they might not recognize Jesus. 

They reached their destination and they invited Jesus in. He accepted the offer. Then they sat down to eat, and he took the bread, blessed it, broke it, and gave some to them. 

When he did that, Luke says, “Then their eyes were opened and they knew Him; and He vanished from their sight” (Luke 24.30–31). They had been talking with Jesus the entire time, and did not know it. 

Listen, my friends, when you open the word of God, he notices you reading it or hearing it explained. He gave you his word. Therefore, he is interested in how you respond to what he has had written. 

Be sure that you pay attention, for you never know what kind of an experience you might have. 


  • To what town did the men travel? 
  • Why do you think Jesus restrained their vision from being able to recognize him?
