By Don Ruhl

After His crucifixion and resurrection, Jesus appeared to two believers who were walking. He wanted to know what they were discussing. They told Him that they were talking about Jesus of Nazareth and the great things that He did, but that their rulers had killed Him, and they were exceedingly disappointed.

Then He said to them, “O foolish ones, and slow of heart to believe in all that the prophets have spoken! Ought not the Christ to have suffered these things and to enter into His glory?” And beginning at Moses and all the Prophets, He expounded to them in all the Scriptures the things concerning Himself (Luke 24.25–27). 

He showed them that they only believed part of the Scriptures concerning the Christ, and they were slow to believe or to accept other portions of the Scriptures, because those other portions prophesied of how the Christ would suffer and then enter His glory.
