The two men walking from Jerusalem to Emmaus after Jesus’death have always fascinated me. Why is only one of them named? Why did they not recognise Jesus even though he travelled and talked with them for some time? How did they feel,having to explain it all to an apparent stranger when they were deeply upset by losing their Rabbi and their hopes? What was it like to turn round and go straight back to Jerusalem once they realised they had met the risen Jesus? This monologue is based on Luke 24.
