In 1 Corinthians 15:1-8 Paul states that the resurrection is essential to the Gospel. He makes a point of listing all the eye witnesses of Jesus’ resurrection. After Christ had arisen He appeared to his followers on many occasions before He ascended into Heaven. One gets the sense that each of these encounters or interactions were important. Jesus was putting things in place, tying up loose ends. One such encounter happened on the road to Emmaus.
