‘Were not our hearts burning within us while he was talking to us on the road, while he was opening the scriptures to us?’ (Luke 24:32)

 We all know the story. It was day after the Sabbath and Cleopas and his companion were on their way to Emmaus. Two days earlier they had witnessed the death of the man they thought to be their new messiah. All their dreams were shattered, their hope gone. The man they loved more than anyone in the world was no more. Then Jesus appeared beside, walked with them, listened to them, and opened the scriptures to them. It was the unpacking of what had happened in the last few days and how it related to the Old Testament that opened their hearts to realising the man they loved was not just a man, he was the Christ, the promised one and they immediately left everything and rushed out to tell others the Good News.

This can still happen today. As we open the scriptures we can find the truth and learn more about ourselves and our ongoing relationship with Jesus.

“Burning Within” is a six-month bible course running from January to June 2017 at venues across South Wales. It will be an opportunity to explore the bible as a whole and it’s place in the world around us. We will have six months to grow in faith, to learn more about the scriptures, to encounter the presence of God, to bring the Bible to Life.

We will meet on the fourth Saturday of each month from 10am to 3pm:
