"Then he opened their minds to undestand the scriptures..."
It is Easter Sunday night, the disciples to whom Jesus had appeared on the road to Emmaus were back in Jerusalem telling their story and suddenly Jesus stood among them. This is the time he opened their minds, showing them what they had never seen before, all that the scriptures had said and meant about Jesus. What a revelation that must have been for them; this man had been talked about for a thousand years and here he was in their midst! We all need a moment like that and if we have not already had it we should pray for it. It is that time when scripture begins to speak directly to you. It is no longer abstract but meaningful. Jesus is opening your mind to what was said about him. For the apostles, the journey was now only really beginning. At last they understood. What a moment this must have been!
