Foolish followers of Jesus (Lk 24:25-24:25)

“Jesus said

To them.

‘O!

How foolish you are!

How slow of heart

To believe

All that the prophets

Have spoken!’”

καὶ αὐτὸς εἶπεν πρὸς αὐτούς Ὦ ἀνόητοι καὶ βραδεῖς τῇ καρδίᾳ τοῦ πιστεύειν ἐπὶ πᾶσιν οἷς ἐλάλησαν οἱ προφῆται·

Luke uniquely indicated that Jesus responded to them.  He said to them (καὶ αὐτὸς εἶπεν πρὸς αὐτούς) that they were foolish or thoughtless (Ὦ ἀνόητοι) and slow of heart or slow to understand (καὶ βραδεῖς τῇ καρδίᾳ τοῦ) and to believe all (πιστεύειν ἐπὶ πᾶσιν) that the prophets had spoken (οἷς ἐλάλησαν οἱ προφῆται).  Jesus seems to almost reprimand them, as his tone shifted from quizzical to confrontational.  Luke is the only canonical gospel writer who has this story about the two disciples on their way to Emmaus in a conversation with Jesus.  Are you slow to believe things?
