And they said one to another, Did not our heart burn within us, while he talked with us by the way, and while he opened to us the scriptures?
 

24:27 beginning at Moses. It is very significant that, when the greatest Bible teacher—in fact the Author of the Book—taught Biblical truths, He began at the beginning! Genesis is the foundational book of the Bible, and it is essential that we understand and believe God’s revelation in Genesis if we would understand the rest of Scripture.

24:27 concerning himself. Jesus here confirms that all the Scriptures point, in one way or another, to the person and work of the Savior.

24:32 our heart burn. “Christian heartburn” results when the Lord—through the indwelling Spirit—opens the Scriptures today as we read and obey God’s Word. “His word was in mine heart as a burning fire shut up in my bones, and I was weary with forbearing, and I could not stay” (Jeremiah 20:9).

24:32 opened to us. Note the order of this passage. When the Scriptures were opened, first their eyes were opened (Luke 24:31) and then their understanding was opened (Luke 24:45).
