A couple of interesting points while preparing for my Luke 24 sermon is that some commentators see a division on verse 44. In other words, while the previous passage (36-43) refer to the resurrection evening, verse 44 introduces Jesus appearing to another group. William Hendriksen seems to favor this division. I am yet uncertain about its legitimacy, but do not see it as troublesome.
Another element is the eating of broiled fish. I am still curious if there is a typological significance to eating fish as opposed to eating something else.(compare Gen.18:8). Is the purpose typological or is it simply another proof that Jesus’ body is flesh and blood. Perhaps. Still, this is a beautifully human touch. Jesus eats with his own disciples. The sacramental significance of this is that while Jesus speaks the word of truth, He also eats with them. The central point of worship should never be placed exclusively on the word, but it must be connected with the sacrament. Word and Sacrament cannot be divorced.
