"it is written"

SDC12116 Luke 24.  Each event described by Luke in this chapter contains a miracle: angelic messengers, Jesus appearing as a fellow traveler on the road, the opening of the eyes of the disciples while he ate with them, his appearance among the eleven. But the miracles are overshadowed by the message (6-7,25-27,32,44-46).  Luke uses the history to emphasize “it is written.”  His version of the great commission is also expressly tied to the written word. Christ died and rose again because it is written. Repentance and forgiveness will be proclaimed in his name because it is written.

LORD, make us the fulfillment of your word.
