So what do you think it would be like to talk to our Risen savior? There are two men who were walking home from Jerusalem after Jesus’ resurrection. Of course at first they only saw a man not knowing anything of the death and resurrection so they filled Him in.
Then the one whose name was Cleopas answered and said to Him, “Are You the only stranger in Jerusalem, and have You not known the things which happened there in these days?”

Then He said to them, “O foolish ones, and slow of heart to believe in all that the prophets have spoken! Ought not the Christ to have suffered these things and to enter into His glory?”
And beginning at Moses and all the Prophets, He expounded to them in all the Scriptures the things concerning Himself.
They reached their home town and asked Jesus to stay. As they broke bread their eyes were opened to the fact that the Risen Christ was with them.
Wow, can you imagine walking with Jesus and getting scripture lesson from Him as well. Of course as soon as their eyes were opened then Jesus vanished.
And they said to one another, “Did not our heart burn within us while He talked with us on the road, and while He opened the Scriptures to us?” So they rose up that very hour and returned to Jerusalem, and found the eleven and those who were with them gathered together,
God may our hearts burn within us as we read and study your word, Amen
