ALL THE SCRIPTURES
Read 2 Kings 23:31 through 25:30; Luke 24:25–52
As Cleopas and his companion walked the road heading toward Emmaus, doubt and discouragement traveled with them. These two disciples truly believed God sent Jesus of Nazareth to be the Redeemer of Israel. Jesus had touched the hearts of so many people, and His teachings and miracles revealed a Heavenly Father who cared for Jew and Gentile alike. But now, everything they believed about this Messiah was in question. Prophetic promises, once understood, were now confusing. Recent events had left them with little hope. They needed answers.
Beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, he explained to them what was said in all the Scriptures concerning himself (Luke 24:27).
God’s cure for doubt and uncertainty remain the same today. If today you find yourself like the two on the road to Emmaus, open your Bible and study all the Scriptures that pertain to Jesus. With the Spirit’s help, you will see Him revealed throughout all the Scriptures. Each book in the Bible is necessary for your welfare as a Christian. Collectively, the Scriptures reveal the complete truth of God’s plans and purposes in Christ.
Prayer Suggestion: As you search through the Scriptures, ask the Holy Spirit to give you a deeper revelation of Jesus.
