The story begins with two men walking down the road to the village of Emmaus after Christ was crucified. The men, feeling rather depressed because they had lost their Savior, came upon a stranger. The stranger struck up a conversation with the men and dined with them. It was only after the stranger departed, did the men realize they had been speaking to a risen Christ, their Savior.
Emmaus Road, a four-part harmony quartet from Dalton, Ga., based the name off the story in Luke 24, of the men walking to Emmaus.
“Two of us met and talked it over with Jesus, and that’s how we came about the name,” said Greg Whitt, founder and tenor singer.
Emmaus Road will perform at 6 p.m. on April 21 at First Baptist Church Navarre.
