Gathering the twelve disciples around him, Jesus told them, "As you know, we are going to Jerusalem. And when we get there, all the predictions of the ancient prophets concerning the Son of Man will come true.
He will be handed over to the Romans to be mocked, treated shamefully, and spit upon.
They will whip him and kill him, but on the third day he will rise again."
But they didn't understand a thing he said. Its significance was hidden from them, and they failed to grasp what he was talking about.
