You have a very realistic attitude towards your local press, Rich. I am afraid that this kind of biased reporting to serve vested interests is a worldwide problem. That is why this chapter of JFV is so much about interpretation, and how Jesus is our interpretive guide in reading the Scriptures. Jesus is initially the guest of Cleopas and the unnamed disciple, who could be you or me, in a place, Emmaus, which does not exist, so could be anywhere. He becomes in a way the host at Cleopas’s home and at the same time reveals himself as the interpretative key to the Scriptures. Luke is asking us through whose eyes do we read the Scriptures? And he makes it clear that the central interpretative experience is not a matter of church authority. It can happen to anyone, anywhere, through the crucified and risen Christ.
