Wesley's Notes for Luke 24:45


24:45 Then opened he their understanding, to understand the Scriptures - He had explained them before to the two as they went to Emmaus. But still they Understood them not, till he took off the veil from their hearts, by the illumination of his Spirit.


Discussion for Luke 24

  • A disciple
    "Then opened he their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures,..but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high." The Apostles had been with Jesus Himself for three and a half years; they had been eye-witnesses of His ministry, His sufferings, and now His resurrection. He just now opened their understanding and commands them to WAIT FOR THE POWER!

    God is in Genesis 1, Lord God is in Genesis 2. God is love and does not plot enmity. Lords of the land, kings= aggressors plot enmity. God did not create evil, man created it, a Lord calling himself God created it. God sent Jesus to teach us that. Moses blessed? The Lord was displeased with Moses: “Because you did not trust in me enough to honor me as holy in the sight of the Israelites, Numbers 2

    Genesis 3:15 "And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel." Exodus 17:6 "Behold, I will stand before thee there upon the rock in Horeb; and thou shalt smite the rock, and there shall come water out of it, that the people may drink. And Moses did so in the sight of the elders of Israel."
  • Insight777
    The Jews hated Jesus being labeled their King. The Jews are looking for a secular KING to lead them to victory in the end of days. That is the prophecy about their messiah. They never described Jesus. Jesus was not sent to earth to rule Israel as a king. They offered him that. Jesus came to save the lost lambs of Israel, those that believe peace is achieved by war and blood sacrifice cleanses sin.
  • Insight777
    No where in the Torah is a Savior mentioned that will die and be raised in 3 days. Their Christ is secular. Their belief : "mashiach" literally means "the anointed one," and refers to the ancient practice of anointing kings with oil when they took the throne. The mashiach is the one who will be anointed as king in the End of Days. V46 is the Christian scripture that has been written.
