Luke 24:44 And he said unto them, These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning me.
45 Then opened he their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures,
46 And said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behoved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day:
47 And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.
After His resurrection, Jesus appeared to his downhearted disciples. He appeared first to two who were walking on the road to Enmnaus, and later to His chosen eleven who were huddled together in fear behind closed doors. Jesus opened the Word to them beginning with the promised seed of the woman in Genesis (Genesis 3:15), through the brazen serpent in the wilderness (Numbers 21:8; John 3:14) to the suffering servant in Isaiah 53. and on to the One who would set as a refiner of the gold and silver in Malachi 3:3.
I'm sure He spent some time expounding the Messianic Psalms (I.E. Psalms 2 & 22). I believe He probably mentioned that it was Himself to whom Israel would cry ,"This is our God, we have waited for Him (Isaiah 25:9). Jesus showed that all scripture is written for the simple purpose of revealing Himself for the purpose of accomplishing our salvation.
Just as Old Testament scripture pointed forward to Him, New Testament scripture points back to Him, and His cross. Nothing else in life really matters. People, churches, governments, styles, customs and morality change. The Word of God remains unchangeable forever (Luke 21:33). When we stand at His throne, the books will be opened. The thoughts and intents of our hearts will be revealed and we will be judged by the eternal Word of God (John 12:48). He won't ask how much wealth, fame or power we have accumulated, but rather, "Did you comprehend in My Word Who I was when I hung on the cross of Calvary to effect your salvation, and did you allow my Word to accomplish your salvation?
John 20:31 But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.
1 John 5:11 And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.
1 John 5:13 These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.
Acts 10:43 To him give all the prophets witness, that through his name whosoever believeth in him shall receive remission of sins.
We've re-recorded an old song If I Could Hear My Mother Pray Again.
We've posted several of the old hymns in midi format at http://about-him.com/midi.html . The Lord willing, We will be adding vocals to these songs shortly.
Terri asked her Sunday School class to draw pictures of their favorite Bible stories. She was puzzled by Kyle's picture, which showed four people on an airplane, so she asked him which story it was meant to represent. "The flight to Egypt," said Kyle. "I see ... And that must be Mary, Joseph, and Baby Jesus," Ms. Terri said. "But who's the fourth person?" "Oh, that's Pontius - the Pilot.
