Wouldn't it be wonderful to have Jesus himself explain the Scriptures to us? All those little things (and big things) we've wondered about would be explained. He could tell us exactly how Moses and the Hebrew people crossed the Red Sea. What got into King Saul to make him want to kill David? Why did He choose to be born at that particular time?
Jesus explained many of those things to some of his disciples after he rose from the dead. When Jesus was walking with two of his followers on the road to Emmaus, Luke (24:27) tells us that "beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, he explained to them what was said in all the Scriptures concerning himself." What a privilege!
For reflection: What Scripture would I most like to have explained by God?
Let us pray. Jesus, I ask you to give me new insight into that Scripture today. Just as you explained things to your disciples on the road to Emmaus, help me with that passage today.

I started this website and blog on May 1, 2012. I am a Catholic who has been in ministry for many years. I first developed what I would call a close relationship with Jesus in the early 1970s. Ever since then I have been praying with people for healing and other needs. It is because I have seen so many of these prayers answered that I am so bold as to offer to pray for you individually through this website and phone line.
