The Road to Emmaus is an inspired film from Ralph Mancuso which depicts the encounter between two disciples who were saddened and confused by Jesus' death on the cross and puzzled at reports of his resurrection and a stranger who joined them on their walk. This stranger helps them understand the old testament prophesies of Isaiah 53, the prophesy of Micah 5:2, the meaning of the passover lamb whose innocent blood protected the Hebrew people from the angel of death, the true meaning of Jesus' death and resurrection. The film helps the viewer understand that Jesus death on the cross gives us atonement for our sin so we can become right with G-d.
The web site describes a unique offer to churches who want to use the video for evangelism. They are selling 100 copies for $1.50 per copy. The makers of the film are clearly not selling the DVDs for a profit.
Visit the web site and also watch, "Road to Emmaus, How one church used the video." The church members made a gift parcel containing the DVD and a loaf of bread which they gave away to shoppers at a grocery story. They included an invitation to a worship service. It looked like a powerful evangelism tool to me, even if the shoppers never joined them at their church for worship.
