Jesus opened their minds to understand the scriptures

Romans 5:10: If, when we were God's enemies, we were reconciled to him through the death of his Son, how much more, having been reconciled, shall we be saved through his life.

  Meditation on Today's Gospel: (Luke 24:35-48)
Jesus goes to immense lengths to promise his disciples that he is no mere ghost or illusion. He shows them the marks of his crucifixion and he makes clear how the scriptures predicted his death and rising. The centrality of the gospel is the cross; but luckily it does not stop there. During the cross Jesus overcome our enemies – death and Satan and won pardon for our sins. His cross is the way to heaven and the key to heaven. The way to glory is through the cross. When the disciples saw the risen Lord they disbelieved for joy! How can death lead to life, the cross to conquest? Jesus shows us the way and he gives us the authority to overcome sin and despair, and all else that would stand in the way of his love and truth. Just as the first disciples were specially made to bring the good news of salvation to all the nations, so, we, also, are called to be witnesses of the resurrection of Jesus Christ to all who live on the earth. Do you witness the joy of the gospel to people around us?.
