Luke gospel is intriguing for two somewhat opposite concepts: a hiddenness/cover theme, and an opening/awareness theme. Jesus is the one who opens eyes, opens minds, opens understandings, opens Scriptures. Consider these themes of Luke.
I. Jesus was not recognized because of faulty expectations, 24:16.
II. Jesus identity is hidden because of the condition of hearts/minds, 24:25.
III. Jesus is recognized because of the unexpected, 24:30.
IV. Jesus remains hidden because of rejecting the Scriptures, 24:45.
Look at again at 24:45. What do you do know? What do you see? Are you ready to be a testimony of what has happened in your life? Have you responded with belief and repentance? Will you worship?
