Luke 24:44-49

44He said to them, “This is what I told you while I was still with you: Everything must be fulfilled that is written about me in the Law of Moses, the Prophets and the Psalms.”

45 Then he opened their minds so they could understand the Scriptures. 46 He told them, “This is what is written: The Messiah will suffer and rise from the dead on the third day, 47 and repentance for the forgiveness of sins will be preached in his name to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. 48 You are witnesses of these things. 49 I am going to send you what my Father has promised; but stay in the city until you have been clothed with power from on high.”

One response to “Luke 24:44-49

  1. He opened their minds, and then they could understand scripture. They understood that He was not their to be their friend and to relate to them, but to fulfill the will of His Father and to fulfill prophecy.

    He also let them know that they were part of the plan and that they would be His witnesses in the earth. He promised them power through the Spirit but He told them to stay and to wait until they were equipped. Not to go in their own strength with their own initiative, but to wait for His power.
