HOW DID THE WALK TO EMMAUS GET ITS NAME?

The Gospel of Luke relates the story of Christ joining two friends on the road from Jerusalem to Emmaus, walking together and sharing their hearts’ deepest concerns. The risen Christ walks with them and explains the scriptures: how it was ordained that Christ should suffer and so enter into his glory. The illuminating climax of this heartwarming experience comes when Christ takes bread and blesses it, he then breaks it and gives it to them.

At that moment, the eyes of the two are opened, they recognize him as the risen Christ, and they rush back to Jerusalem to tell the others. (Luke 24:13-35)
