After Jesus rose he appear to his disciples. Jesus is alive today and meets us on the roads of life.  

1. Jesus meets us on the roads of life and challenges our doubts. Read Luke 24:13-25 

Q: What doubts concerning God, Jesus, and the Gospel have you had or still have?  

Q: The disciples in Luke 24 were sad (v. 17) because Jesus' death shattered their hopes and expectations of the Christ and the redemption of Israel (v. 21). Of course God's plan was wiser! How have your expectations and hopes been shattered? Has God's wiser way become obvious to you yet?  

2. Jesus meets us on the roads of life and gives us reason to believe the good news. Read Luke 24:26-27 

When Jesus "interpreted to them in all the Scriptures the things concerning himself" it means that Jesus showed them what the Old Testament Scriptures, written hundreds of years before his birth, spoke of his life, death, and resurrection.
