Discussion for Luke 24:19

  • Mike D on Luke 24:19
    Jesus truly was a Prophet, however He was Priest and King. They missed His deity and His mission. The old testament does show Christ as a reigning King, and that is completed at the cross when He said "It Is Finished ". The full effect of this will be seen at the Great white throne judgment. The Jews were looking for a Redeemer but they missed the message of the old testament. Luke 24:26 states ,ought not Christ to have suffered these things, and to enter into his Glory. In other words there was no short cut, the cross was necessary for Redemption. Jesus could have set them free politically from the Roman oppression but God 's plan was much grander. The whole message of Old and New Testament is the redemption of man for a heavenly kingdom not a mere earthly one. This redemption would last for eternity!
