Luke 24:36-53

After resurrection, Jesus walks His followers through the Scriptures again. Jesus is teaching them, from Scripture, about the significance, the purpose, and the meaning of His death, burial, and resurrection. He is reminding them that His death, burial, and resurrection had been predicted (from prophecies recorded in Scripture). This is proof of His identity as Savior. The purpose that Jesus points to, for all of this is, “forgiveness of sins for all who repent”. Jesus clearly wanted his followers to remember His purpose. Jesus calls us to live for it. This is the starting point for all followers of Jesus.
