Then beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, He interpreted for them the things concerning Himself in all the Scriptures.
What an amazing experience this must have been for these disciples. The Lord Jesus Himself teaches their personal Bible study. The Messiah walks them through the Holy Scriptures explaining everything in the Old Testament that pointed to Him and His suffering. It is no surprise that their hearts did burn within them. The power of His teaching must have been overwhelming.
A very similar possibility exists for believers today. We have the inspired Word of God faithful in all it reveals before us. This same Written Revelation that Jesus taught is available today – preserved through the centuries. In addition, we are indwelled by the blessed Holy Spirit Who promises to interpret and explain the Word of God to us and reveal Jesus to us. He lives to bring glory to Lord Jesus both within us and within the world. We are always wise to request the Holy Spirit’s guidance, direction and interpretation when approaching the Word. He intercedes and will faithfully apply God’s Word to the willing soul. What an amazing blessing!
May our hearts burn within us as Father God’s Word is revealed to us.
