"Listen to me carefully. We're on our way up to Jerusalem. When we get there, the Son of Man will be betrayed to the religious leaders and scholars. They will sentence him to death. Then they will hand him over to the Romans,
who will mock and spit on him, give him the third degree, and kill him. After three days he will rise alive."
