Luke 23-24~ Day 34~I want to take a walk with Jesus!

It stood out to me today when Jesus said, "How foolish you are, and how slow to believe all that the prophets have spoken!...Then beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, he interpreted for them the things concerning himself in all the scriptures." (24: 25 & 27)

Oh man, I wish I had been part of that conversation!!!  Their hearts burned as He was explaining the scriptures!  Mine would have too!  I would have loved to have gotten all the dots connected for me! I found a commentary that listed many of the prophesies predicting the coming Messiah. The Jewish people definitely had cause to be waiting for one!
Genesis 3:15 & 49:10, Numbers 21:89, Deuteronomy 18:15, Isaiah 9:6-7, Isaiah 53:1-12, Psalm 16:1-11, 22 110:1-7, Daniel 9:25-27 and Malachi 4:5.

I am doing a Bible study on Daniel right now.  I so wish I could ask Jesus, himself, about Dan. 9:25-27.  Talking about confusing!  I'm jealous of these two people walking on the road back to their home town, Emmaus (24:13).  Jesus explained it clearly to them....

But, I know that the Lord has given His spirit to me and can help me understand those prophesies as well! "This is what we speak, not in words taught us by human wisdom but in words taught by the Spirit explaining spiritual realities with Spirit taught words." ( 1 Cor. 2:13)

So, please Lord, with the wisdom you can give me, help me understand Daniel! 😊

I wonder about Jews nowadays, and if they would be convinced by the same scriptures? I think they are still waiting for the powerful-king Messiah, not the suffering servant Messiah.
I, too, would love to hear a Jew that was well versed in scripture try to explain some of the obvious prophesies!
