Check this out…… that very day 2 of them were going to a village named Emmaus – about 7 miles from Jerusalem, 7 MILES….7 MILES…7 Miles away, how ever many minutes by car, how ever many minutes it’d take you to run that…an hour, 2 hours, 4 days…..7 miles from Jerusalem and they were talking to each other about all these things and what had happened….. while they were talking and discussing together, JESUS Himself drew near…and listen to this……WENT WITH THEM —-WHERE???? TO EMMAUS….HOW FAR AWAY IS THAT?? 7 MILES.
Lemme tell you why I’m pointing this out – Historically, not biblically, Historically this causes a lot of trouble for the secular mind….so there’s all these theories about how to deal with it….. one of the theories is – that when they arrested Him, beat Him a dozen times, yanked the beard out of his face…..drove nails through His hands and feet. After they ripped the skin off His back and left Him hanging there for 6 HOURS…then took a spear and DROVE IT under His rib cage through His lungs and back out, spilling blood and water all over the cross, that maybe they didn’t kill Him, that they put Him into the ground and 2 DAYS LATER, HE’S WALKING 7 MILES TO EMMAUS WITH 2 GUYS.
RIDICULOUS…..THE WORLD SAYS…. THEY SAY YOU’D HAVE TO BE AN IDIOT TO BELIEVE THAT THEORY….I mean come on ….Have you ever broken a toe and tried to walk without looking like your hips exploded inside your PELVIS????
The theory….the historical, Discovery Channel theory is that after this unbelievable beating, JESUS is 2 days later walking to Emmaus for 7 miles
NOW THAT’S SILLY….. The world says… All the goofiness that is Christianity, that’s right up there with the dumbest things those Christians believe, that after having your full body weight bared down on a nail driven through the center of both your feet that 48 hours later your walking a 7 MILE JAUNT TO EMMAUS…..
THANK YOU JESUS THAT THIS GOOFY CHRISTIAN IS NO LONGER
CONFORMED TO WHAT THIS WORLD BELIEVES, THANK YOU JESUS THAT
I AM NO LONGER A FAN BUT A FOLLOWER!!
WHO ELSE IS WITH ME?
