Bulletin Announcements on Synods and Synodality #3
June 28, 2021 • Diocese of St. Augustine

Where in the Scriptures can we find the concept of synodality?

The story of the two disciples on the road to Emmaus is a good Scriptural example of how Jesus sought to listen to others as he walked with them.  In the story, Jesus asks them to tell him their story which reveals some misunderstandings about him.  Then, Jesus accompanies them to dinner, breaking open the Word of God with them and revealing himself in the breaking of the bread.  This is how these disciples understood that Jesus was accompanying them on “their way.” (Lk 24:13-35)
