Luke 24:25-27 (NIVUK)
25 He said to them, “How foolish you are, and how slow to believe all that the prophets have spoken! 26 Did not the Messiah have to suffer these things and then enter his glory?” 27 And beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, he explained to them what was said in all the Scriptures concerning himself.

Sometimes things happen that challenge our what we believe the Bible says. These disciples can help us as this is just what had happened to them! Their lesson from Jesus was not to discount either the Bible or their experiences but to go back to Scripture and see if there is a different way of reading it or a different way of seeing what has happened. As we do so, the Spirit may in his mercy bring us to a fresh and deeper understanding.

Father, thank you for the Bible, your word for us. May we ever been drawn into a deeper understanding of you and our world through it.
