Luke 24:45 (HCSB)

Then He opened their minds to understand the Scriptures.

     He opened.  They didn’t open their own minds to understand; Christ opened their minds so that they could fully understand that the Tanakh—Old Testament—spoke of him and his suffering all along.  They needed to have their minds opened.
     To understand. To fully comprehend the message of the Scriptures.  They saw with veiled eyes, but Jesus opened their eyes so that they could fully comprehend the Scriptures. 
     We need to pray that the Holy Spirit would open our eyes in the same way as we read and study the Scriptures.
