Description

The biblical narrative describes two disciples discussing the resurrection of Christ on the road to Emmaus, when a stranger joins their conversation on the road. Upon arrival, the disciples ask him to stay for supper. Only when the stranger breaks the bread do the disciples realize that He is Christ, and He has been among them the entire time.
