And He said to them, "What are these words that you are exchanging with one another as you are walking?" And they stood still, looking sad. One of them, named Cleopas, answered and said to Him, "Are You the only one visiting Jerusalem and unaware of the things which have happened here in these days?" And He said
to them, "What things ?"
On the road to Emmaus, two followers of Jesus are walking and discussing all that had taken place in Jerusalem regarding the Lord's arrest and crucifixion. Jesus comes along side of them and listens to their conversation, miraculously keeping them from recognizing Him. Can you imagine what went through the Savior's mind when Cleopas asked Him if He was "the only one visiting Jerusalem and unaware of the things which have happened here in these days?" Jesus must have smiled to Himself over that question. He certainly knew what had gone on over those three days! Still, He wants them to share what is on their hearts. This is the loving kindness of our Lord. He always wants us to speak to Him from our hearts.
