Luke 24:18 ” They stood still, their faces downcast, one of them, named Cleopas, asked Him, ‘Are You only a vistor to Jerusalem and do not know the things that have happened there in these days?’ “

It was still on the third day that these two followers of Christ  were trudging on the road to Emmaus.  Disheartened and disillusioned , they had put their hope in this man named Jesus only to see Him die on a Cross.  Yes, some crazy women had  tried to convince them that He had risen from the dead, but they weren’t believing any of it.  Suddenly,  a man was walking along side them, asking what they were talking about.  Cleopas was incredulous that this stranger didn’t know the events of the last few days.  In more modern language, Cleopas might have exclaimed to Him – “Have you been living under a rock?!”  And Jesus could have replied, “As a matter of fact, Yes, I have.”
