God invented the concept of a franchise – the Blessor Franchise. (Luke 24: 13-49)Jesus opened their minds to understand the truth of the scriptures. Jesus helped the disciples to understand that what had happened to him was in fulfillment of the scriptures. Luke points to two major themes: Firstly that Christ will suffer die and rise again and secondly that repentance and forgiveness of sins should be proclaimed in his name to all nations.Jesus helped them to understand what had happened and what was still to come. This is the Blessor Franchise – that the gospel needs to be proclaimed to all the nations. It is a cross-cultural mission of mercy.
