Jesus, who was crucified, is risen! This incredible declaration has become one of the most divisive statements made over the last 2,000 years. Peter reminds us that Jesus Himself is the Cornerstone of our faith, but He is also a stumbling stone to many. When we embrace Him, we are made into living stones and built into the living church!
The mysterious journey to Emmaus was marked by the presence of the resurrected Jesus. His conversation with the two men cited Moses and the prophets in order to explain the life and death of Jesus. The story he told must have been a glorious recounting of the presence of God that is represented in our midst.
