Summary: A look at Jesus as he shares with the disciples on the road to Emmaus. Why did he start at Moses to expound the scriptures concerning himself? I have tried to answer this, plus it's a good gospel message.

JCC Easter Evening 04.04.10

Read: Luke 24:13-32

This was the fourth appearance of Christ; this was to two the disciples as they walked on the road to Emmaus

What did Jesus say to them?

There was a supernatural withholding of all recognition

Christ expounded to them the Old Testament Scriptures concerning Himself Mark 16:12-13; Luke 24:13-35

Luke 24:27 And beginning at Moses and all the Prophets, He expounded to them in all the Scriptures the things concerning Himself

Why start at Moses?

Why not start at Gen 3 where God spoke about the serpent getting his head crushed?

Why not show that Jesus was symbolised in Abraham with Isaac?

Why Moses?

Because I think it was the beginning of the sacrifices

1. In Moses He was the fulfilment of all the sacrifices

When God gave Moses the law, there was blood sacrifices needed to atone for the sin of the nation

This was following the pattern given to Moses when the children of Israel were to leave Egypt

Take a spotless lamb

Apply the blood

Eat it all

We have to apply the blood of the Lamb to our hearts

We need to take the Lamb within us

But here Jesus was showing them that the sacrifice of animals was behind them

He was according to John the Baptist, ‘the lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world’

Scripture tells us that through the blood of Christ, we are saved

Also, in Rev we see Jesus at the right hand of God

Rev 5:6 And I looked, and behold, in the midst of the throne and of the four living creatures, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as though it had been slain

Rev 5:12 ..the elders were saying with a loud voice: "Worthy is the Lamb who was slain To receive power and riches and wisdom, And strength and honour and glory and blessing!"

Rev 13:8 All who dwell on the earth will worship him, whose names have not been written in the Book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world

You have to ask yourself the question, ‘Do I know that my name is in the Lamb’s book of Life?’

If you are not sure, then don’t leave here tonight until you are certain

2. David's king and Shepherd

King David, the one that Israel worshiped, recognised that there was One greater than he

Ps 110:1 A Psalm of David. The LORD said to my Lord, "Sit at My right hand, Till I make Your enemies Your footstool."

Ps 23:1 The Lord is my shepherd...

David recognised a greater King and a mightier shepherd

Jesus said, ‘My sheep hear My voice and they know me, and they follow Me’ John 10:27

Do you hear His voice?

Do you know Him?

Do you follow Him?

We see how Jesus is the King of kings and Lord of lords

Rev 19:16 And He has on His robe and on His thigh a name written: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.

If you don’t acknowledge Him as your king now, one day you will have to bow the knee to Him

Every knee shall bow and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord to the glory of God the Father Phil 2:11 & Rom 14:11

3. Solomon "lily of the valley."

He describes the love between the King and the bride

We are the bride of Christ
