This was very nicely done - I am surprised at how long it took me to catch on to what this was about - a testament to your wonderful writing ability! I caught a few grammar issues and a few misused words, but otherwise this was strong. I somehow found the present tense distracting, but that may have just been me. Nicely done!

Well done. It had the feel of a modern day story with the truth of the Biblical one. Good dialogue.

The wonderful story of the two disciples from Emmaus(sp?) Great Bible story and you have made it into a more personal story, of how it could have been, or might have been. Really enjoyed it and it kept my interest throughout. Good job!
What a great way to retell a Bible story!

I like your take on this familiar and uplifting story. I think you meant "amble" instead of "amber". :) Good job re-writing this episode from your MC's view point.
Great story! I love Biblical fiction.
I loved this! I can just imagine being there when the mystery was revealed! Nice job!

This was a good mystery! I didn't know exactly who was who and what was going on until I got the first name and then everything started to click. This is a great piece of writing!

Oh the title says it all. Great job, captivating.
I have always been touched by this Biblical story and was not disappointed in the way you presented it. Good writing.
