“And he said unto them, What manner of communications are these that ye have one to another, as ye walk, and are sad?” (Luke 24:17)
Have you ever wanted to start a conversation but didn’t want to look ridiculous or stupid? I know I have.
On the road to Emmaus, Jesus started the conversation with a ridiculous sounding question. It prompted Cleopas to ask, “Art thou only a stranger in Jerusalem, and hast not known the things which are come to pass there in these days?” Jesus followed up with, “What things?”. If Jesus can ask ridiculous questions to start a conversation, so can we!
