The resurrection of Jesus. It’s hard for them to believe it.
They were told that two women went to the tomb of Jesus and didn’t find his body, but saw angels, who said he was alive. They were talking with each other about everything that happened that day while going to a village called Emmaus, but they were confused.
At that time, a man came up and walked along with them. He was Jesus. However, they, the disciples, did not recognize Him. Jesus asked them, “What are you discussing together?” One of them, named Cleopas, told the fact that Jesus had been crucified and the news about the resurrection of Jesus.
After hearing that, Jesus said with a sad face:
“How foolish you are, and how slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken! Did not the Christ have to suffer these things and then enter his glory?”
Then, beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, or the Bible, Jesus explained to them what was said in all the Bible concerning Himself. Their hearts were burning within them while Jesus talked with them on the road.
They went back to Jerusalem immediately and spread the news of the resurrection of Jesus. Just at that moment, Jesus appeared in front of the Disciples and opened their minds.
“This is what I told you while I was still with you: Everything must be fulfilled that is written about me in the Law of Moses, the Prophets and the Psalms.¬†This is what is written: The Christ will suffer and rise from the dead on the third day,¬†and¬†repentance and forgiveness of sins will be preached in his name to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.¬†You are witnesses of these things.”
Jesus who passed away and was resurrected according to the prophecies of the Bible! The Disciples could realize that all these things had been prophesied in the Bible. ¬†And they got a lump in their throat when they heard that repentance and forgiveness of sins would be preached beginning at Jerusalem and Jesus designated them as witnesses of these things.
The Bible which prophesied the death and the resurrection of Jesus. It’s prophesied in the Bible that the Second Coming of Jesus and the Bride are to appear in these days. It’s also prophesied that the work of salvation would start in the east from the ends of the earth.
Do you know the Savior of this age: the Spirit and the Bride whom the Bible testifies to? Do you know the history of salvation which started from Korea, ¬†located in the east, at the ends of the earth? The two disciples headed to Emmaus, not knowing the resurrection of Jesus. Aren’t you going to the wrong place which is not the place of the prophecy like them?
