Commentary from Pastor Michael White:

And He opened their understanding, that they might comprehend the Scriptures. – Lk 24:45

Before the disciples could fully comprehend the Scriptures, Jesus had to open their understanding. He had to show them that every word, sentence, and phrase in Scripture ultimately points to Him. He had to explain that every Old Testament prophecy was fulfilled in His death, burial and Resurrection. If He hadn’t showed them, they never would have properly understood!

Before you open your Bible, pray. Pray God would open your understanding and illuminate Biblical truth to you. Pray His Holy Spirit would move as you read, and highlight the verses you need to keep close to your heart. Pray that your time reading God’s word would draw you closer to Jesus than ever before! He will give you eyes to see, and ears to hear; but you must ask for your senses to be opened first!


Father, give me a deep & thorough understanding of Scripture. Help me to see how every phrase points to Jesus. Open my eyes that I would see Your will; and open my ears that I would hear Your voice, in Jesus’ name!
