As Jesus was on the way to Jerusalem, he took the twelve disciples aside privately and told them what was going to happen to him.
"When we get to Jerusalem," he said, "the Son of Man will be betrayed to the leading priests and the teachers of religious law. They will sentence him to die.
Then they will hand him over to the Romans to be mocked, whipped, and crucified. But on the third day he will be raised from the dead."
