“Road to Emmaus”

November 20, 2019

1 Maccabees 4: 13, 14; 24: “Then the men with Judas blew their trumpets and engaged them in battle.  The Gentiles were crushed and fled into the plain … On their return they sang hymns and praises to Heaven.”  After being threatened by the Greeks for years, Judas the Maccabean (meaning, The Hammer) got serious and whipped a force much larger than his own, just like in the glory days of David and his army.  The battle site?  The village of Emmaus.  No wonder the Lord let it figure in the Resurrection Day story (Luke 24: 13), to be an image of the great victory Christ had won!
