43 And all were astounded at the greatness of God. While everyone was amazed at all that he was doing, he said to his disciples, 44 “Let these words sink into your ears: The Son of Man is going to be betrayed into human hands.” 45 But they did not understand this saying; its meaning was concealed from them, so that they could not perceive it. And they were afraid to ask him about this saying.
Ever been afraid to ask the obvious question? Then you’re in good company because the disciples were the same in this passage. Jesus tells them something they do not understand and they decide not to clarify what they do not know because of fear.
I need to remind myself I will not understand everything but I need to make every effort to understand what I am told by others.
