The Risen Messiah
The scope of the appearance of the
risen Jesus given in the gospel extract
from Saint Luke today is very great.
The full setting of his teaching was not
explicitly evident in the missioning of
his earthly life; he was the Galilean who
had appeared with gifts of healing
which entailed their divine endowment
with which some passages in the later
part of Isaiah's prophesy anticipated.
His doctrinal and moral teaching were
the elements of a divine wisdom implicit in all of his words. He claimed a
heavenly origin, and that his teaching
was implicitly and historically related to
the Jewish scriptures, which it fulfilled
by clarifying and fulfilling.
The central part of his teaching would

After his already prophesied betrayel
and arrest, his passion and his Crucifixion by the Roman procurator under the
pressure of the Jewish authorities, we
are following his appearances in his
human body resurrected by his fullyshared Trinitarian divinity. He had, according to Saint Luke, attached himself
to two travelling disciples on the way to
Emmaus, to whom he had opened the
Scriptural perspectives which set him
out as recapitulating all Jewish history
in the world perspective anounced by
the prophet Isaiah.
The disciples had returned immediately
to the Apostles in Jerusalem and were
telling them of their experience, and at
that moment He Himself appeared in
their midst uttering the words, 'Peace
Brown Bread
with you!' So he called on them to

head: to experience its presence which

underlay his passion-wounded body.
And he asked for food to show that his
presence was both physical and spiritual.
In his earthly mission he had spoken as
a man; at this moment he speaks from
his Godhead through his glorified manhood before its definitive Ascension. So
he speaks from the perspective which
embraces all perspectives, and therefore with the greatest authority, most
useful for their ministering to his body
which they would participate as his
Church until time's end. He showed
them how he was fulfilling prophesies
in the Law of Moses, the Prophets and
the Psalms.
Exegetes currently identify five Messianic prophesies in the Law-books.
Firstly the enmity prophesied betwen
the seed of the serpent and the Seed of
the woman, not designated by a father
(Gen 3,15). Secondly, the blessing
promised to all the nations through the
Seed of Abraham (Gen 22,18); so Mary
is given a priority for the Seed of them
both. Thirdly, that 'the [Kingly] sceptre
shall not depart from Judah ... until the
Conciliator shall come, gathering the
people' (Gen 49,10), and here the slain
and risen King addresses the Apostles
to whom the gathering of all peoples is
Fourthly, the princes of neighbouring
people of Moab had asked a pagan seer,
Baalam, to curse the Israelites, but the
inspiration of God compelled him to say
'I shall see him, but not now: ... there
shall come a Star out of Jacob, and a
Sceptre shall rise out of Israel, and shall
smite the corners of Moab' (Num
24,17). Fifthly, 'I will raise up a Prophet
from among their brethren and will put
my words in his mouth; and he shall
speak unto them all that I shall command Him', which is in Deuteronomy
This gave the possibility of relating the
Law to the highest Wisdom: not just to
the Torah existing 'from the beginning'
as the Rabbis taught, but a timeless,
spiritually uttered Word of God such as
he was now giving, to be given by John
in his Prologue, and by Matthew in his
Sermon on the Mount. Amen.
