Luke 24:44-45 "Yeshua said to them, “This is what I meant when I was still with you and told you that everything written about Me in the Torah of Moshe, the Prophets and the Psalms had to be fulfilled.” Then He opened their minds, so that they could understand the Tanakh." This verse literally jumped out of my Bible today!

I was listening to a preacher friend today teach about the Emmaus Road experience. Lately, I have thought it to be so cool that really what Yeshua was teaching His two friends on the road, was a review of the Torah and the Tanakh! It was like He was saying, "You know if you were paying attention to what you have been studying for years, you would have recognized Me already!"

Isn't that what is happening today? Now? It's like Yeshua is "Opening up our minds, so we can understand the Tanakh" and specifically the Torah! He "journeyed" with these two men through the only Scripture they knew, and reminded them of all the Words and Prophecies concerning the coming of the Messiah. Finally, He opens their minds and they understand! Just what is happening today, with the resurgence of believers coming back to the Torah! He is taking us on a "journey" back to the beginning, to the WHOLE Word and wow are we getting the revelation!

And then I was thinking about when He ate with them. Verse 30-31 same chapter, "As he was reclining with them at the table, He took the matzah (unleavened bread), made the b’rakhah (blessings), broke it and handed it to them. Then their eyes were opened, and they recognized Him." Remember it was still during the Feast of Unleavened Bread (7 days) so, of course, they would be eating unleavened bread. And there seems to be something about this breaking of matzah, speaking the Hebrew blessings, that jogged their memories. Was it because this was a holy revelation of truth? I know when I go through the Feasts of Pesach and Feast of Unleavened Bread (Hag Hamatzot ) their always seems to be a stronger revelation of HaShem's truth and Yeshua's story of redemption. It all seems to come more "alive" during these Feasts.

My point is this. That believers across the world are having their "eyes opened" by HaShem. And what a wonderful experience this is. To find out the missing "pieces" of our story were always there, we were always studying them, we were just a little blinded from seeing. And now we see. Praise Him!
