The New John Gill Exposition of the Entire BibleLuke 24:44
And he said unto them, these are the words which I spake
Or this is the substance of them, the sense and

Father, and their Father:
that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of
Moses, and in the Prophets, and in the Psalms, concerning me:
concerning his sufferings, and death, and resurrection from the
dead, spoken of in (Genesis 3:15) (Isaiah 53:1-12) (Daniel 9:26) (Hosea 6:2) (Psalms 22:1-31)
(Psalms 16:10) and in this he refers to what he had said to his disciples
in (Matthew 16:21) (17:22,23) (20:18,19) and alludes to the usual distinction
among the Jews of the books of the Old Testament into the Law, the
Prophets, and the Hagiographa; among which last stands the book of
Psalms, and is put for the whole; a division often to be met with in
both their Talmuds F1, and other writings F2.
