THE SUPPER AT EMMAUS

Christ, dressed as before, is seated at table with the two disciples. As Christ breaks the bread, the disciples recognise him and raise a hand in astonishment. Two loaves and a fish are on the table (again, in Luke 24:30, the text says they sat ‘at meat’). When Christina has her ‘Emmaus experience’, giving a meal to a stranger, she serves bread and fish (Talbot, 1998, 185).
