April 15, 2018 Third Sunday of Easter GOSPEL REFLECTION Today’s passage continues the story of the two disciples who encountered the risen Christ on the road to Emmaus. The experience of the risen Lord could not be contained and the two returned to Jerusalem to tell the eleven that they had seen Jesus. In the midst of their conversations, Jesus appears, offering peace. The disciples were terrified thinking that he was a ghost. While Jesus let them touch him, they were still incredulous and did not recognize him until after he shared a meal with them and spoke the words that helped them to understand the scriptures. This is very similar to the Emmaus encounter. This part of the story emphasizes the physical reality of the resurrected body of the Lord.. In today’s story the disciples touch him; they can see the marks of the wounds in his hands and feet and eat with him. He is no ghost . He is the lamb of God, who can open the Word of God for us today. Reflexión del Evangelio El pasaje de hoy continúa la historia de los dos discípulos que se encontraron con el Cristo resucitado en el camino a Emaús. La experiencia del Señor resucitado no pudo ser contenida y los dos regresaron a Jerusalén para decirle a los once que habían visto a Jesús. En medio de sus conversaciones, aparece Jesús, ofreciendo paz. Los discípulos estaban aterrados pensando que él era un fantasma. Mientras Jesús dejaba que lo tocasen, seguían siendo incrédulos y no lo reconocieron hasta después de compartir una comida con ellos y decir las palabras que los ayudaron a comprender las Escrituras. Esto es muy similar al encuentro de Emaús. Esta parte del La historia enfatiza la realidad física del cuerpo resucitado del Señor. En la historia de hoy, los discípulos lo tocan; pueden ver las marcas de las heridas en sus manos y pies y comer con él. Él no es un fantasma Él es el cordero de Dios, que puede abrirnos la Palabra de Dios hoy.
