Then he opened their minds so they could understand the Scriptures. Luke 24:45
So often during Jesus’ earthly ministry, he taught his disciples about his impending death and resurrection, but they didn’t understand (Mark 9:32; Luke 9:45; Luke 18:34; John 12:16; John 20:9). Now following his resurrection, he opens their minds. Likewise today, unless we allow Jesus to open our minds so we move past our assumptions, traditions and preconceived ideas we won’t understand the Scriptures. Jesus promised us his Spirit who “will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you” (John 14:26).
