SUMMARY OF LUKE 24:13-49
After Jesus’s death, two were walking to Emmaus. Jesus appeared alongside them, but they did not recognize him. They were downcast that Christ has been crucified, hoping he was the redeemer. Christ told them about how Christ was meant to die for them, and he explained all of the foretellings about this in the Old Testament. He stayed with them, and when Christ broke bread for dinner, he was revealed to them and then he disappeared.
The men went to tell the Eleven what had happened. As they were talking, Jesus appeared. They believed him a ghost at first till Jesus began to eat. He opened their minds to the Scriptures. They are witnesses to all that has happened and would be sent the Holy Spirit as promised.

7a) Matthew 23:39: “For I tell you, you will not see me again until you say, ‘Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.'” From Psalm 118:26
b) If Jesus quotes the Old Testament, then it’s important. Since the Old Testament foretells Jesus’s coming, it’s all intertwined, and nothing God records is wasted.
8 ) Jesus is resurrected here, fulfilling prophecy that Jesus would come and sacrifice his life so that all may live. Prophecy also says how Jesus will be resurrected as God conquers death. Jesus fulfills the law.
9) I love studying the Old Testament because I’m a history buff. It’s fascinating to read about the mistakes people made with regards to following God and his laws and how we continue to do the same thing today, even though it’s easier for us since we have God’s law to obey and we have Jesus. I’m hoping to learn more, so I can grow with God and make fewer mistakes and sins in my life because of it.

End Notes BSF Study Questions People of the Promise: Kingdom Divided Lesson 1, Day 3: Luke 24:13-49 and Romans 15:4
The two disciples are anonymous and the are lamenting Jesus’s death. Jesus listens to them and then teaches them that Christ had to suffer as the prophets said. They needed to believe with their hearts.
Jesus told them all about Moses, the Prophets, and the Old Testament, using the Old Testmant. What I wouldn’t give to hear that explained!
Jesus broke bread and revealed himself. Remember, these men were not at the Last Supper. Then, he vanished. Yet, their hearts burned because of God’s word!
They then walked 7 miles to report what had happened to the disciples.
Jesus appears to them in the flesh and eats. He teaches them and opens their understanding, so they may teach others.
All of what was written in the past (Old and New Testament) is for our learning so we can be close to God. How cool is that!
