Jesus lives in Scripture

March 20, 2018 by Dr. Jack Graham

And beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, he interpreted to them in all the Scriptures the things concerning himself.

— Luke 24:27

Remarkable things begin to happen when you and I encounter the resurrected Jesus. It’s true! Just look at what happened when those two discouraged disciples met Jesus while they were walking to Emmaus.

Now, at first, these two men didn’t recognize the resurrected Christ. They were telling this “stranger” about the recent events regarding Jesus’ death. And of course, no one knew more about these circumstances than Jesus, himself, but he listened patiently.

And then Jesus began to remind them of the Scriptures that revealed the purpose of his coming. One verse at a time, he walked them through the word. And as these broken-hearted men listened, they began to realize something magnificent was happening. Their hearts were on fire, their joy returned as this “stranger” unfolded God’s purposes before them.

Don’t you wish you could walk with Jesus this way… to hear him reveal the heart of God and his divine purposes? Well, you can!

Open the Scripture and begin to read. Jesus is the Word! That’s what the apostle John said in John 1:1, “In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God….”

Read the Word and you will meet the living Christ! And he will ignite your passion and rekindle your hope.
