Jesus’ death and resurrection shouldn’t have been a surprise to the two disciples. He met their discouragement and confusion with Scripture, revealing that it all points to Him. Jesus could have shown Himself to them and removed their doubt and questioning, but instead, He revealed the truth found in God’s Word about the kind of Messiah He would be. He did not immediately deliver Israel from surrounding nations but instead had come to redeem the rebel through His sacrificial death.
They later recognized Him and came to know the truth by sight, but their hearts had been stirred to faith as Jesus taught them to understand rightly the Scriptures and the greater deliverance Jesus had come to secure.
