Episode Outline

The story of the disciples’ encounter with Jesus on the road to Emmaus takes the following shape:

  • Encounter—Jesus encounters us in the midst of our fragmentation and confusion.
  • Understand—Jesus reframes our understanding of ourselves and the world by explaining the biblical story.
  • Respond—We can live with joy and confidence as Christ’s ambassadors.

Sample discussion questions

  • What does joy and confidence look like in the midst of the sorrows, heartaches, and disappointments of life—not only yours but of the wider world?
  • What sustains us as ambassadors on our journey of discipleship?
  • What is God saying to you, your church, and your community about how you can be an ambassador to the culture around you?
