LUKE 24:44-49

You're the Witnesses

44 Then he said, "Everything I told you while I was with you comes to this: All the things written about me in the Law of Moses, in the Prophets, and in the Psalms have to be fulfilled."
45 He went on to open their understanding of the Word of God, showing them how to read their Bibles this way.
46 He said, "You can see now how it is written that the Messiah suffers, rises from the dead on the third day,
47 and then a total life-change through the forgiveness of sins is proclaimed in his name to all nations — starting from here, from Jerusalem!
48 You're the first to hear and see it. You're the witnesses.
49 What comes next is very important: I am sending what my Father promised to you, so stay here in the city until he arrives, until you're equipped with power from on high."

Kate's Notes:  (One Year With Jesus)....Luke wrote to the Greek-speaking world. He wanted them to know that Christ's message of God's love and forgiveness should go out to all the world. We must never ignore the worldwide scope of Christ's gospel. God wants all the world to hear the Good News of salvation.


      The phrase "Moses, the prophets, and the Psalms" is a way to describe the entire Old Testament. In other words, the entire Old Testament points to the Messiah. For example, Jesus' role as prophet was foretold in Deuteronomy 18:15-20, His sufferings were prophesied in Psalm 22 and Isaiah 53; His resurrection was predicted in Psalm 16:9-11 and Isaiah 53:10-11. Jesus opened these people's minds to understand the Scriptures. The Holy Spirit does this in our lives today when we study the Bible. Have you ever wondered how to understand a difficult Bible passage? Besides reading surrounding passages, asking other people, and consulting reference works, pray the Holy Spirit will open your mind to understand, giving you the needed insight to put God's Word into action in your life.
