While everyone was marveling at all that Jesus did, he said to his disciples, 44 “Listen carefully to what I am about to tell you: The Son of Man is going to be delivered over to human hands.” 45 But they did not understand what this meant. It was hidden from them, so that they did not grasp it, and they were afraid to ask him about it.
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.
