In Luke 24:13-15, we read of the greatest Bible Study of all time: 2 disciples were traveling on the road to Emmaus, when they encountered a “stranger” (Jesus, who at first kept them from recognizing him) with whom they shared all of the recent events (not realizing that it was He about whom they were describing! Jesus then began to instruct them, “And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, he expounded unto them in all the scriptures the things concerning himself” (verse 27). I imagine He started with the “seed of the woman” and the serpent in Genesis 3, moved through the brass serpent of Moses in Numbers 21, taking them through the myriad testimonies to the Messiah throughout the Old Testament.
Wow! What a class! When He finally opened their eyes to His presence, their response was palpable: “Did not our heart burn within us, while he talked with us by the way, and while he opened to us the scriptures?” (verse 32).
I don’t know about you, dear readers, but I am looking forward to attending this class when we all get Home!
