AbstractTwo disciples of Christ, walking from Jerusalem to Emmaus, met the Risen Lord, listened to him announcing and explaining the Good News, and received him as their host during the breaking of the bread. At first they did not recognize him. But he was really present amongst them. Then, still not knowing who he was, their hearts were burning within them as he was explaining to them the Scripture. And finally, at the table, when he broke the bread, their eyes were opened. And they wanted to share their joy of meeting the Lord by relating this experience to the other disciples This is an account of a liturgical assembly and celebration which took place on a Sunday evening in the first century.
