While We’re in Luke 24…

2009 | by Ryan Kelly | Category: Sermons,This Sunday

Last Sunday’s message gave an overview of the post-resurrection appearances in Luke 24. Of course, we touched upon Jesus’ rebuke and Old Testament Messianic explanation to the two disciples on the road to Emmaus (vss 13-34). But so much more could have been said about how the O.T. talks of Christ and his suffering. So while we’re at it, this coming Sunday we’ll stay right there in Luke 24 and dig a little deeper into verses 25-27:

And He said to them, “O foolish ones, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken! Was it not necessary that the Christ should suffer these things and enter into his glory?” And beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, He explained to them the things concerning Himself in all the Scriptures.

You might call this Sunday’s message, “What Jesus Might Have Preached to the Two on the Road to Emmaus.” So, really, it’ll be more a study of parts of the O.T. that Jesus might have taught on this famous seven mile journey into Emmaus. Hopefully, we’ll come away from our time together (and time with the Lord) in corporate worship like these two disciples, saying: “Were not our hearts burning within us while … He was explaining the Scriptures to us?” (v 32). Let’s pray that this same Jesus, by his Spirit, teaches us gloriously, intricately, and powerfully as we meet once again to celebrate his resurrection.
