Walk this Way: Resurrection, Scripture and Eating with Jesus


Mike Boone

Luke 24:13-35

“You’re pretty good with words, but words won’t save your life.” -Craig Finn from The Hold Steady’s Stuck Between Stations

“The moment of recognition comes only as they sit at the table and Jesus breaks the bread with them – an action that recalls Jesus’ last supper with his disciples in Jerusalem. This point, too,  is significant for understanding the hermeneutics of resurrection. We do not gain a grasp of Scripture’s significance solely through lectures on the text; we come to understand the death and resurrection of Jesus as we participate in the shared life of the community, enacted in meals shared at the table.” -Richard Hays

“The mystery of the poor is this: That they are Jesus, and what you do for them you do for Him. It is the only way we have of knowing and believing in our love. The mystery of poverty is that by sharing in it, making ourselves poor in giving to others, we increase our knowledge of and belief in love.” -Dorothy Day
