(Luke 24:13-24)


1. If given the opportunity, what would you say about Jesus to a stranger?
2. This happened in Luke 24…not only did it happen, but the stranger justhappened to be Jesus himself.
3. Let us examine several facts about this sermon.

    2. How long could someone live in Glasgow without knowing about Jesus?
B. They Were Sad.

    2. Can we still be touched by the death of Christ or is it “old news?”
C. They Walked And Preached.

    2. We can preach almost anywhere, and should.
