Road to Emmaus | Sunday School or Bible Lesson for Elementary Students

Lesson from Luke 24:13-35

The Road to Emmaus is an interesting story in the Bible. It takes places shortly after Jesus had been resurrected on the first Easter. When the disciples found His empty tomb, they were confused and heartbroken. They didn't understand yet that Jesus was the promised Messiah.

After Jesus appeared to Mary Magdalene at the tomb, He appeared, disguised, to two disciples walking to Emmaus. As they walked, the two disciples discussed everything they had seen in Jerusalem over the last week. They had hoped that Jesus would be the redeemer of Israel. On their walk, a man joined them and asked them about these things. He then pointed out to these men that Jesus had to suffer to enter God's glory and he pointed out scriptures from Moses and all the prophets to support what he said. Once the men broke bread with this man, they realized that he was Jesus. Their hearts burned within them and they raced back to tell the disciples in Jerusalem.

Students studying the Road to Emmaus will learn that sometimes we don't recognize Jesus working in our lives. They will discuss how the Holy Spirit works in us to accomplish God's work.
