"A member of the Dutch Reformed Church heard the story at his bible class : a motorist picks up a hitchhiker along the motorway. A conversation develops on spiritual matters and the subject of the future Kingdom of God crops up. The hitchhiker then announces that Jesus will appear again soon and dissapears in the same way as at the supper at Emmaus. The motorist is so shaken that he parks his car on the hard shoulder to recover from the shock. Here he is approached by some traffic policemen to whom he tells the story. They reply, 'You are the eighth motorist who has told us this'." ( Source: Trouw, The Netherlands, March 1991)
