Knowledge Being Different from Revelation (1)
Luke 24:14 And they were talking to each other concerning all these things which had occurred. (15) And while they were talking and discussing, Jesus Himself drew near and went with them. (16) But their eyes were kept from recognizing Him. (17) And He said to them, What are these words which you are exchanging with one another while you are walking? And they stood still, looking sad. (18) And one of them, Cleopas by name, answered and said to Him, Do You alone dwell as a stranger in Jerusalem and not know the things which have taken place in it in these days? (25) And He said to them, O foolish and slow of heart to believe in all that the prophets have spoken! (26) Was it not necessary for the Christ to suffer these things and enter into His glory? (27) And beginning from Moses and from all the prophets, He explained to them clearly in all the Scriptures the things concerning Himself. (28) And they drew near to the village where they were going, and He acted as though He would go farther. (29) And they constrained Him, saying, Stay with us, because it is near evening and the day is already gone by. And He went in to stay with them.
(Part 1 of 2)
After the Lord’s resurrection, two of the disciples went to Emmaus. On the way they were talking to each other concerning all the things which had occurred, that is, about the things concerning the Lord Jesus which Mary had related. At that moment, the Lord Jesus Himself drew near to them. Yet their eyes were kept from recognizing Him; they did not know the resurrected Lord. They knew the Jesus who was in the flesh. But they did not know the Lord who had resurrected. Resurrection was a mysterious thing to them, and they could not believe in it.
The Lord conversed with them, taught them, and clearly explained to them in all the Scriptures the things concerning Himself, beginning from Moses and from all the prophets. Yet they still did not know Him. Although they understood the teachings of the Scriptures and were touched and even burning in their hearts, they still did not know the Lord Jesus. This shows us that doctrines and revelation are two different things. They understood the Scriptures, but they did not know the Lord. They knew the teachings about Christ, but they did not know Christ.
