The Rev. C. E. Shields of the
Iirst Foreign Church preached nn
excellent sermon on Easter Sunday
morning, taking for his text the
"Did not our heart bum within its

while he opened tto us the scriptures."
Today the Christian world stands
with attention turned toward the
glory of the resurrection. This is
the great companion truth to the
atonement, the two are inseparably
linked, and support each other.
The sorrow which overwhelmed the
disciples in the one, gave place to
the joy which burst upon them in
the realization of the other, and this
same mingling of emotion should
tin fmuwl tvitliiti nlir linnrtc nti tine
Easter and communion occasion.
The resurrection involves mys
teries which, like the incarnation,
can be satisfactorily considered only
in the light of Christ's divinity "In
1 1 1 i 111 was life," says the evangelist,
and today we commemorate the
triumph of that life over death and
St. Luke says that Christ "showed
himself after his passion, by many
I infallible proofs, being seen of them
forty days, and speaking ol the
things pertaining to the kingdom
It is from one of the appearances
reciued among these "infallible
proofs" that I desire to draw some
suggestions for our morning con
sideration. No other appearance
of our Lord is related with such
minuteness of detail, as this walk
with the two disciples to Emmaus.
One of the two disciples who walked
to Emmaus that afternoon was
Cleopas. He was not a member
of the apostolic company, and
nothing fur her is known of him.
The other is not even mentioned by
name, but the account is so vivid
that it suggests the writing of an
eye witness. For this reason many
have I bought him to be St. Luke
himself. They seem to have been
upon no mission of great impor
tance. Possibly they were walking
out to Emmaus to escape the sad
associations which they found about
them in the sacred city. Whatever
might have been their intentions
before Christ's appearance, as soon
as he was made known unto them,
they returned in nil haste to declare
the glad tidings to the bretheren
As they went on their way "they
talked together of all these things
which had happened,
ment smothered the

I had risen so high in
I Their thoughts were
' rather than
I trusted that
the future. "They
it had been he which
I should ha'e redeemed Israel." But
now this hope seems to be crushed.
I They needed an appearance of the
j risen Christ. Hope bears our
I spirits up with remarkable buoy
laucy in trials, but when hope fails,
i the case is desperate. Our religion
is a gospel of hope. A hope which
finds its very source in the resttr
l rectiou which today we commemo
j rate. It was at a time when hope
i had fled and despair weighed down
, the hearts of the two disciples that
j Jesus appeared to them as an un
known traveler along the same
I The transformed resurrection
body of the Christ was the same,
and yet it was different. Mary
I Magdalene did not at first recog
1 nize him. These two did not know
him. And the company at Jerusa
lem did not at first realize who he
I was. And whatever resurrection
glory and heavenly changes may
have been wrought in his person.
, I think we can readily see why he
j did nqt make himself known unto
I the two when he first met them in
the way. His purpose was to in
struct them, to confirm their faith,
laud revive their hope, and then re
' veal himself. Thus teaching them
tha the risen Christ was "with
(them always" even in his bodily

j himself to these two disciples. He
began to interpret to them in all the
I scriptures the things concerning

j account of the recent happenings as
1 a text, he proceeded to show the
I relation of these events, to the things
! written in scripture concerning the
! Christ. And he found the Scrip
I Hires lull of plan and prophecy con
j cerning himself. Who then should
1 interpret these things save he who
had just completed their fulfilment.
1 All the old scripture was quickened
1 with new life upon that resurrection
day. It was like the deeds and
titles which had long lain in some
. obscure comer being now brought
out to corroborate the owners claim.
' And the risen Christ is still the in
terpreter of Holy Scripture. I have
all faith in the sanctifying power of
the word of truth. It has been the
efficient agency adopted upon the '
pioneer lines of every gospel con
quest. The word shall never lose
its power. If we nre irresponsive
to its influence, if vc fall to appre
ciate its saving mission the fault
does not lie with the word.
We have ascribed to it a position
of honorable neglect; we have es
sayed to set up our own judgement
as a criterion superior to the Al
mighty: or perhaps we seek the
word with a literary rather than a
religious motive, lint if we expect
to discover the power of the Spirit
therein, it must be through the
gracious influence of the risen
Christ. He brings the capacity for
spiritual knowledge and under
standing. He had told the disci
ples of his mission, but they never
fully grasped it until his resurrec
tion. That explained all. In the
light of the resurrection they were
willing to wait for the fire of pente
cost. This same illuminating influence
was manifest in the Apostle Paul.
In his blinded interpretation of law
and prophecy he thought that by
killing the disciples he was render
ing God service. Hut when the
glorified Christ appeared to him on
his way to Damascus all was
changed. It was as though that
miraculous light had cleared his be
fogged vision. A new meaning
flashed out from the page of holy
writ, and with clear and faultless
logic he was enabled to use those
same scriptures to prove that Christ
was "the end of the law for right
eousness to every one that believ
eth." In the beauty of this Easter
season may we be in such place and
in such spirit that the risen Christ
may interpret to us the things con
Notice in the second place how
Christ's presence had unconsciously
but thoroughly warnied the heart
of the despondent disciples. When
he had declared himself to them
and departed out of their sight,
they said, "Did not our heart burn
within us while he talked with us
by the way." Then they realized
why it was that he had bourn them
up out of themselves and imparted
confidence and assurance.
His own hopeful confidence had
been to them like a tonic. Instead
of being cast down by the events of
the past days, this stranger had
taken these sami things, fitted them
into their proper place with respect
to prophecy, and made them a
means of assurance rather than a
source of doubt. We respond nat
urally to the strength of a deter
mined and hopeful personality. A
brave general may accomplish won
ders with a very ordinary soldiery,
but if he is a coward his soldiers
will very likely run like sheep. O
that today we may receive more of
the spirit of the risen Christ, to fire
our hearts with zeal, to shake off
onr fears and inspire us with a
But Jesus did more than open the
Scriptures to the disciples and to
warm their grief chilled hearts.
When he had thus prepared them
for the climax of joy he revealed
himself as their living Lord. There
was much of that scene in the house
at Emmaus Vint would suggest the
last supper in Jerusalem. By virtue
of his own preeminence Jesus the
guest assumes the position of the
host. And it is so in our own
lives. When we invite him to our
heart he not only comes as a guest
but he also becomes the dispenser
of spiritual gifts. As he thus min
istered to the disciples their eyes
were opened and they knew him.
Association with him had sharpened
their spiritual vision. They recog
nized the Christ, and when he van
ished from the room, when "he
ceased to be seen of them," he did
not cease to influence them. Their
faith was assured. With our own
spiritual vision quickened by closer
association with him, let us hope
today for a clearer revelation to us
of Christ the way of life.
As Christ departed from these
now joyous disciples they had
learned some very certain lessons.
They were assured that the Lord
was risen. There was no longer
any question in their hearts about
the exact meaning of his words, or
of his mission. And with them we
rejoice today in a risen Christ and
a living gospel. Other religions
with some element of truth have be
come as stagnant pools, gradually
accumulating error and abuses, un
til they have sent forth a moral
miasma Irom their surface. But
the religion of Jesus Christ is as
from a living spring. The living
Christ has enabled his church again
and again to throw off error and
superstition, and to renew her
purity and power. Today the
Church offers us no traditional
faith in a dead philanthropist; but
a vital faith in a living and reign
These two were further assured,
and we are likewise made certain,
that Jesus' bodily presence was
now to be succeeded by his spiritual
presence; but a presence none the
less real and efficient. The close of
his mission in the flesh marked the
beginning of his extensive mission.
Before there had come some hints
of 11 gospel to the gentiles, now the
barriers were broken down mid
