    Obviously Jesus wore glasses so he wouldn't be recognized.

    Keep in mind that Jewish men of Jesus' day (and throughout most of history it seems) were typically bearded but after death they would have had all of their hair shaved off in preparation for burial. It could simply be that they didn't at first recognize him beardless. There are numerous websites showing just how different a man can look with and without a beard (The Daily Mail even ran an article on it).

    Because He didn't want them to recognize Him until He decided it was time. He was explaining the scriptures about Himself (all OT, btw), so they would get who He is and the significance of His life, death and resurrection.

    Also none of the disciples really believed that Christ would be resurrected after His death. Even though He told them umpteen times and they had just seen Lazarus raised.

    Jesus doesn't need glasses to pull of that trick! Though, I'm sure He had a good reason to not stick around and go back home from His short term mission trip.
    If it weren't for the Resurrection of Jesus, we'd all be in DEEP TROUBLE!
