On the road to Emmaus
I'm about to illustrate the story of the two disciples who met Jesus on the road to Emmaus, as part of the 'Resurrection story'. I remember hearing recently the suggestion that this couple were in fact husband and wife as opposed to the two men that we normally see depicted!
No explanation was given though, and I can't see any good reasons in scripture to believe it was so. Am I missing something?
I was wondering if anyone else had heard this suggestion, and what the reasoning was behind it? As usual. I welcome all comments!
