Now Jesus was going up to Jerusalem. On the way, he took the Twelve aside and said to them, “We are going up to Jerusalem, and the Son of Man will be delivered over to the chief priests and the teachers of the law. They will condemn him to death and will hand him over to the Gentiles to be mocked and flogged and crucified. On the third day he will be raised to life!”
We often take issue with the disciples and their seeming blindness and deafness to what Jesus was saying. The problem with you and I going there indicates a twofold problem for you and I. First, we assume some sort of superiority to the disciples applauding ourselves for our great sensitivity and insight. Second, there is the extreme likelihood that there is probably a great deal which we do not yet understand of the scope and magnitude if those words. Let’s not ever be in anger of assuming that we know it all because of our own arrogance. Rather, let the words of Jesus speak to us today and receive them with the knowledge that we have and know that there is much more we have to learn.
