“The Art of Seeing Without Seeing”
Sermon Text: Luke 24:13-35
In the Name of Jesus
Two weeks ago it was John who saw nothing in the tomb, but saw everything to believe Jesus rose again.
Last week it was Thomas; to whom Jesus said “Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.”
And now this week Cleopos and the other disciple need to learn the art of seeing without seeing.
In spite of physically seeing the resurrected Jesus, Cleopos and the other disciple didn’t recognize Him.
You might think they lacked information, like maybe they weren’t around when Jesus prophesied His death and resurrection?
But, when they recited what happened over the past three days, including hearing from the women who saw the empty tomb, we know they saw everything they needed to see in order to believe.
