The two disciples on the road to Emmaus had a most profitable journey. Their companion and teacher was the best of tutors. Their interpreter was one of a thousand, in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. The Lord Jesus condescended to become a preacher of the gospel, and He was not ashamed to exercise His calling before an audience of two persons. Neither does He now refuse to become the teacher of even one. Let us court the company of so excellent an instructor for, until He is made unto us wisdom, we shall never be wise unto salvation. – Charles Spurgeon (1834-1892), from a meditation on Luke 24.27.
