We have looked at the various times at which Yeshua (Jesus) revealed Himself to His apostles but today, as we continue our countdown to Pentecost, we want to look at what the church calls the Great Commission or our Great Commission.
Judeo-Christian Clarion — Devotionals
Judeo-Christian devotionals are seasonal devotionals oriented around the Appointed Times. What is the true Biblical basis of Lent and Pentecost as traditionally celebrated in the church? What do the fall feasts of Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur have to teach us about Yeshua’s second coming? What is the true purpose of Advent, and what lessons can we glean from a Christian celebration of Hanukkah? These are a few of the questions addressed in these devotionals.
This week we want to continue our story from last week. The disciples and Yeshua (Jesus) are having breakfast by the seashore. We want to start now at John 21:15 where Yeshua turns to Peter to confront him about his loyalty as a disciple. So now Yeshua asks Peter, "Do you love Me more than these?"
As we countdown to Pentecost we want to look once again at one of Yeshua’s (Jesus’) appearances after His resurrection. How excited they all were to see and hear from the Messiah! Can you say the same thing about yourself? Would you stop what you are doing and run to the Master?
Because the drama of the crucifixion and the resurrection is over, we think that nothing else is important for us to know regarding the Scriptures, but Yeshua had a lot to say to His disciples before He left them, and we are going to take a closer look. Today we want to look at the road to Emmaus.

Many believers today do not totally understand that the prophets prophesied about the sufferings of Yeshua (Jesus). Many believe that the Jews crucified our Messiah, and so they have had ill feelings toward them, calling them Christ killers, when in fact it was not them, but it was God's plan from the beginning.
Yeshua (Jesus) is the Word made flesh; in other words, we must eat, as it were, the Word of God. We must allow the Word of God to change us and transform us into His likeness.
As we prepare for the season of the crucifixion, let us consider what it's all about: "The wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Messiah Yeshua our Lord."
As we saw in part two of our Lenten devotional, it is not about giving up cake or cookies for Lent that prepares us, but the giving up of sin. It's about death to self, the flesh, and life in the Spirit.
As we prepare during this time of Lent, we must understand what we are preparing for, and it's not the Easter bunny and chocolate eggs. What we are actually preparing for is the second coming of Yeshua (Jesus).
