Luke 24

June 11, 2011

Here’s how the study works: Read the chapter mentioned in the heading several times during the week and share any words, thoughts, verses that stood out to you. Having a week for a chapter creates the opportunity to reread it several times and make additional comments as you feel inclined as well as make comments on other people’s insights.

  1. v.6 He is not here; he has risen! Remember how he told you, while he was still with you in Galilee

    Remember, remember, how often we forget what God has told us. We forget His promises, we forget previous answered prayers, we forget He loves and cares for us.

    Remind us often, Lord.

  3. v.26 Did not the Messiah have to suffer these things and then enter his glory?

    Again Jesus has to remind them. The Messiah had to suffer. It was not something they were comfortable with but it was prophesied. These disciples needed to let go of their preconceived ideas to understand.

  5. v.21 but we had hoped that he was the one who was going to redeem Israel.

    But we “had hoped”. They hoped he was the Messiah, they didn’t seem to believe it enough to put the full weight of their trust in him.

  7. v.51 While he was blessing them, he left them and was taken up into heaven.

    Luke finishes his gospel with the Ascension and commences his next book, Acts with it. “After he said this, he was taken up before their very eyes, and a cloud hid him from their sight” (v.9).

  9. v.44-45“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.” Then he opened their minds so they could understand the Scriptures.

    Would have been amazing to have Jesus open their minds so they could understand how he fulfilled all the Law, the Prophets and the Psalms. Yet Jesus can do this today, if we let him, by the power of his Spirit.
