“Crucified” and “Messiah” do not belong together!
A “Crucified Messiah” is not an intelligible concept. For those following Jesus while he was alive, this would have been offensive and tantamount to blasphemy! The two disciples on their way to Emmaus were certainly no exception. They told their nameless travel companion that “Jesus of Nazareth was a prophet, powerful in word and deed before God and all the people. The chief priests and our rulers handed him over to be sentenced to death, and they crucified him; but we had hoped that he was the one who was going to redeem Israel” (Luke 24:19-24). ”We had hoped…” The two disciples had hoped for a much more than what they experienced: a humiliated, crucified, and now dead prophet. Jesus was supposed to revealed himself as THE Messiah, then destroyed the Romans, freed Israel, and ushered in a new messianic age of peace and justice! The Risen Jesus responds to their disillusionment by revealing himself to them in the breaking of the bread. He shows them that they had in fact set their bar way too low for the Messiah. He is no mere military “messiah” – he is the Conqueror of death, the Lord of life, the Crucified and Risen One, the Messiah who now makes all things new.
