On the Way to Emmaus

Christ Jesus, in his brief earthly career, made extensive use of parables to teach the multitudes the spiritual facts which underlay his mission. However, he found it necessary to expound the spiritual signification of those parables, even to his nearest followers, so lacking in spiritual perception was the age in which he lived. Today, through Christian Science, there is a wider appreciation of the import of his parables and their application in the everyday affairs of mankind.

Many other recorded events in the Bible also carry messages of practical import to perplexed humanity, their spiritual significance made apparent in the light thrown on the Scriptures by the teachings of Christian Science. Thus the journey of two of Jesus' disciples from Jerusalem to Emmaus, as recorded in Luke's Gospel, is revealed in its deeper significance as aglow with an inspired message of hope for today.
