I think that this is certainly true Rich, but perhaps we should also consider the subtlety of Luke’s writing, where he initially portrays Jesus as an ‘outsider’who gradually changes the roles to become the host and to offer them a new story. Luke writes of Jesus appearance as a ‘Yahwistic theophany’. The disciples come to realise that they are not talking to a man they met on the road, but to “I AM”, who is the fulfilment of their own Scriptures, and, the key to interpreting them.
