Luke Chapter 24

Luke 24

1Now upon the first day of the week, very early in the morning, they came unto the sepulchre, bringing the spices which they had prepared, and certain others with them.

2And they found the stone rolled away from the sepulchre.

3And they entered in, and found not the body of the Lord Jesus.

4And it came to pass, as they were much perplexed thereabout, behold, two men stood by them in shining garments:

5And as they were afraid, and bowed down their faces to the earth, they said unto them, Why seek ye the living among the dead?

6He is not here, but is risen: remember how he spake unto you when he was yet in Galilee,

7Saying, The Son of man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again.

8And they remembered his words,

9And returned from the sepulchre, and told all these things unto the eleven, and to all the rest.

10It was Mary Magdalene and Joanna, and Mary the mother of James, and other women that were with them, which told these things unto the apostles.

11And their words seemed to them as idle tales, and they believed them not.

12Then arose Peter, and ran unto the sepulchre; and stooping down, he beheld the linen clothes laid by themselves, and departed, wondering in himself at that which was come to pass.

13And, behold, two of them went that same day to a village called Emmaus, which was from Jerusalem about threescore furlongs.

14And they talked together of all these things which had happened.

15And it came to pass, that, while they communed together and reasoned, Jesus himself drew near, and went with them.

16But their eyes were holden that they should not know him.

17And he said unto them, What manner of communications are these that ye have one to another, as ye walk, and are sad?

18And the one of them, whose name was Cleopas, answering said unto him, Art thou only a stranger in Jerusalem, and hast not known the things which are come to pass there in these days?

19And he said unto them, What things? And they said unto him, Concerning Jesus of Nazareth, which was a prophet mighty in deed and word before God and all the people:

20And how the chief priests and our rulers delivered him to be condemned to death, and have crucified him.

21But we trusted that it had been he which should have redeemed Israel: and beside all this, to day is the third day since these things were done.

22Yea, and certain women also of our company made us astonished, which were early at the sepulchre;

23And when they found not his body, they came, saying, that they had also seen a vision of angels, which said that he was alive.

24And certain of them which were with us went to the sepulchre, and found it even so as the women had said: but him they saw not.

25Then he said unto them, O fools, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken:

26Ought not Christ to have suffered these things, and to enter into his glory?

27And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, he expounded unto them in all the scriptures the things concerning himself.

28And they drew nigh unto the village, whither they went: and he made as though he would have gone further.

29But they constrained him, saying, Abide with us: for it is toward evening, and the day is far spent. And he went in to tarry with them.

30And it came to pass, as he sat at meat with them, he took bread, and blessed it, and brake, and gave to them.

31And their eyes were opened, and they knew him; and he vanished out of their sight.

32And they said one to another, Did not our heart burn within us, while he talked with us by the way, and while he opened to us the scriptures?

33And they rose up the same hour, and returned to Jerusalem, and found the eleven gathered together, and them that were with them,

34Saying, The Lord is risen indeed, and hath appeared to Simon.

35And they told what things were done in the way, and how he was known of them in breaking of bread.

36And as they thus spake, Jesus himself stood in the midst of them, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you.

37But they were terrified and affrighted, and supposed that they had seen a spirit.

38And he said unto them, Why are ye troubled? and why do thoughts arise in your hearts?

39Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have.

40And when he had thus spoken, he shewed them his hands and his feet.

41And while they yet believed not for joy, and wondered, he said unto them, Have ye here any meat?

42And they gave him a piece of a broiled fish, and of an honeycomb.

43And he took it, and did eat before them.

44And he said unto them, These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning me.

45Then opened he their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures,

46And said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behooved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day:

47And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.

48And ye are witnesses of these things.

49And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high.

50And he led them out as far as to Bethany, and he lifted up his hands, and blessed them.

51And it came to pass, while he blessed them, he was parted from them, and carried up into heaven.

52And they worshipped him, and returned to Jerusalem with great joy:

53And were continually in the temple, praising and blessing God. Amen.

  1. 28And they drew nigh unto the village, whither they went: and he made as though he would have gone further.

    29But they constrained him, saying, Abide with us: for it is toward evening, and the day is far spent. And he went in to tarry with them.

    I find this vs. interesting. Jesus showed up walking and talking to the men about what was going on….but once they got to there destination Jesus seemed as though he would have kept on going. Jesus is a gentleman he doesn’t force himself upon anyone, he will although reveal himself. This was a test, were the men just going to let Jesus walk off! course not, they constrained him. They invited him in. The same way we need to invite him in, and keep the relationship going.”And he went and tarry with them” The good news is that you know he will respond! If you don’t have a good relationship work with your creator what makes you think you can have a successful relationship with anyone else? Hold on tight and don’t let go 🙂

  2. V8 NIV “Then they remembered his words.”
    Ps 145v13…The Lord is faithful to all his promises”
    Ps 119v50 “My comfort in my suffering is this: Your promise preserves my life.”
    When life is difficult to understand:
    In times of trial:
    Remember his promises:
    Matt 28v20…and surely I am with you always,to the very end of the age.”

  3. 27And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, he expounded unto them in all the scriptures the things concerning himself.

    What an amazing sermon to have heard. The word, expounding the word!

    Yet, they only thought him to be a prophet until they saw him resurrected.

    This tells me to strive after the truth, and honor it as fine treasure, and then when times of testing come I won’t be afraid.

  4. 15And it came to pass, that, while they communed together and reasoned, Jesus himself drew near, and went with them.

    16But their eyes were holden that they should not know him.

    So many times are answer is right in front of us, or even within us, but we reason together with humans to decide the answer instead of seeking the ultimate one who has the answer for all things.

  5. 41And while they yet believed not for joy, and wondered, he said unto them, Have ye here any meat?
    42And they gave him a piece of a broiled fish, and of an honeycomb.
    43And he took it, and did eat before them.

    They didn’t truely believe that Jesus was alive until He ate the fish and honey. This is also a sign for those who still don’t believe that He is risen. We serve a Risen God that died for us, all of us.

  6. v 49 And behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of
    Jerusalem , until ye be endured with power from on high.

    God asked us to do something against our nature… Wait for the promise until that emptiness is filled from on high.
    ” Greater works than these shall you do because
    you are going to be endured with power.
    God told us some very special things.
    I will not leeave you comfortless.
    I will be coming unto you.
    I’m going to walk, talk work through you.
    I am with you alway even untill the end of the world.
    As we wait in faith. GOD’S getting ready to take us home.
    HIS bride is waiting for her GROOM .With greater expectancy .
    I LOVE YOU, JESUS

  7. vs-34-IT IS TRUE
    Belif in a literal physical resurrection of Jesus is supported by three lines of evidence. There is the evidence of fulfilled prophecy. There is evidence of eyewitness testimony. And there is the evidence of millions of lives transformed by faith in him over the span of some two millenia.

  8. 18And the one of them, whose name was Cleopas, answering said unto him, Art thou only a stranger in Jerusalem, and hast not known the things which are come to pass there in these days?

    19And he said unto them, What things? And they said unto him, Concerning Jesus of Nazareth, which was a prophet mighty in deed and word before God and all the people:

    20And how the chief priests and our rulers delivered him to be condemned to death, and have crucified him.

    21But we trusted that it had been he which should have redeemed Israel: and beside all this, to day is the third day since these things were done.

    22Yea, and certain women also of our company made us astonished, which were early at the sepulchre;

    23And when they found not his body, they came, saying, that they had also seen a vision of angels, which said that he was alive.

    24And certain of them which were with us went to the sepulchre, and found it even so as the women had said: but him they saw not.

    25Then he said unto them, O fools, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken:

    26Ought not Christ to have suffered these things, and to enter into his glory?

    27And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, he expounded unto them in all the scriptures the things concerning himself.

    28And they drew nigh unto the village, whither they went: and he made as though he would have gone further.

    29But they constrained him, saying, Abide with us: for it is toward evening, and the day is far spent. And he went in to tarry with them.

    30And it came to pass, as he sat at meat with them, he took bread, and blessed it, and brake, and gave to them.

    31And their eyes were opened, and they knew him; and he vanished out of their sight.

    Jesus was in the midst of them, talking to them and they didn’t even know it. By the time they realized it he had left.

    Lord I pray I always know when I’m in your presence.

  9. The women brought spices they had prepared. They didn’t bring a last-minute, bottom of the barrel, leftovers offering, they brought something special, something prepared, something set aside for the King. A reminder to bring Him our best, to come into His house tomorrow with a heart and mind already washed and fixed on Him, with every burden already surrendered at His throne, ready to praise and worship Him without holding back.

  10. This chapter is about hope & promise. We all have the hope & promise of salvation if we follow the Word; “And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem”. The plan of salvation is not hard to understand, Jesus made it easy and available to all that truly want it. Therefore we must Be-Church to all, which hopefully they will accept the promise of eternal life with Jesus, instead of eternal life with satan. May the good Lord Bless you all in Jesus name, Amen

  11. SEARCHING FOR THE TRUTH

    5 And as they were afraid, and bowed down their faces to the earth, they said unto them, Why seek ye the living among the dead?

    Jesus is the way, TRUTH and Life. So often we find ourselves searching for Living TRUTH among spiritually dead resources. Accompanying the search among the dead is the following:

    1. FEAR – They were afraid.
    2. DISCOURAGED – Bowed down their faces.

    We need not look for life, encouragement or hope in this dead things of this world. The “living” is only found in a personal intimate relationship with JESUS! Look no longer in jobs, relationships, clubs, drugs, alcohol or any other element of this dead world.

    Find the LIVING in the TRUTH.

    BE Church

  12. 45Then opened he their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures

    Thankful that the Lord has blessed us and allowed us to understand His word clearly and that the mysteries of Jesus have been revealed. No question about who he is and what we must do to abide with him for eternity.

  13. Vs 16 It is too bad that so many people have their eyes “holden” so that they cannot see the true Jesus (oneness) and his word (Acts 2:38).

  14. 6He is not here, but is risen: remember how he spake unto you when he was yet in Galilee,

    7Saying, The Son of man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again.

    8And they remembered his words,

    We must remember the words that God has spoken. Hold fast to them and never let them go.
