“Then he opened their minds to understand the scriptures…” The content of Jesus’ opening the scriptures included his suffering, dying, and rising on the third day along with repentance and forgiveness of sin proclaimed in his name to all nations. They were called and empowered to be witnesses to “these things.” In our day and age in the church, what are we looking for in the scriptures? Inspiration for life? Leadership principles? Strategies for growing organizations? What does Jesus want to open our minds to in the scriptures? Lord Jesus, open our minds to understand the scriptures. Amen.
