A Suffering Messiah

This morning's cross.
The two disciples on the way to Emmaus tell the stranger who joins them on the road that the Cross has dashed their hopes that Jesus was the Messiah. The unrecognized Risen Christ uses the Jewish Scriptures to show them that "the Messiah should suffer before entering into his glory."  Sometimes what we want Jesus to be blinds us to who he wants to be for us.
