32 They were on the road going up to Jerusalem, and Jesus was walking on ahead of them; and they were amazed, and those who followed were fearful. And again He took the twelve aside and began to tell them what was going to happen to Him, 33 saying, “Behold, we are going up to Jerusalem, and the Son of Man will be delivered to the chief priests and the scribes; and they will condemn Him to death and will hand Him over to the Gentiles. 34 They will mock Him and spit on Him, and scourge Him and kill Him, and three days later He will rise again.” ~ Mark 10:32-34 (NASB)
Lord, Jesus was so different from what the disciples were expecting that they didn’t understand when He told them what would happen. Help me to know You and Jesus as You are, as the Bible says, rather than from my own perspective. In His name. Amen.
