Luke 24:13-35

I. The importance of listening to all things revealed

    A. The disciples’ despair (Luke 24:13-24; 23:53,55)
    B. Jesus contrasts their misunderstanding with the actual inspired record (Luke 24:25-27; Genesis 3:15; 22:18; Exodus 12; Leviticus 16:1-34; Deuteronomy 18:15; Isaiah 7:14; 40:10-11; 50:6; 53:3-4; Ezekiel 34:23; Micah 5:2; Zechariah 6:12; 9:9; 12:10; 13:7; Malachi 3:1)
    C. Application for today (Matthew 7:21; Mark 16:16; John 12:48)

II. The necessity of hospitality

    A. The disciples’ hospitality (Luke 24:28-29)
    B. A requirement for Christians, both leaders (1 Timothy 3:2; Titus 1:8) and all members (1 Peter 4:9)
    C. Jesus was not going to force Himself into their lives or homes – He required the invitation

III. Our attitude toward the Scriptures

    A. Their hearts burned (Luke 24:32; James 1:21; 2 Timothy 2:15)
    B. They were so excited, they could not wait to tell others (Luke 24:33-35; Mark 16:15)
