Luke 24:45 ESV
45 Then he opened their minds to understand the Scriptures,
Jesus opens our minds to the Scriptures just as He opens the door to heaven.
The Greek word translated as open speaks of the opening of a new born's eyes. We are indeed born anew.
Luke 24:45 (GWHS)
τοτε διηνοιξεν αυτων τον νουν του συνιεναι τας γραφας
