I think this is one of the most profound statements Jesus makes to his disciples (us)
this is the glorified, risen, Jesus. the one they saw die, brutally. they put him in the tomb.
he asks them: do you have anything to eat.
they hand him a piece of fish.
and he eats.
can you imagine this scene. he is asking THEM if they have any food.
they stare at him dumbfounded and hand him a fish.
I can just see him shaking his head ..uhm thanks.
or maybe like a scene from ‘the office’, he looks into the camera and just nods…
he takes the fish and graciously eats it.
remember he is now the risen king of kings. remember in heaven there is no need for food or refreshments.
but he takes what they offer and eats.
then he talks.
I’ve been telling you this all along, that everything written about Me in the Hebrew Scriptures must be fulfilled—everything from the law of Moses to the prophets to the psalms.
Then He opens their minds so they can comprehend the meaning of the Hebrew Scriptures.
It is your focus—from dusk to dawn
