Luke 18:31-33, Jesus talks frankly to His Disciples about what is about to happen the following week in Jerusalem. Jesus is trying to prepare them for the Cross that awaits Him. Jesus told the Disciples that He would be arrested, mocked, insulted, spit upon, flogged, and killed. Jesus also said, "On the third day, He will rise again." (John 18:33)
Jesus' Disciples did not understand - and would not understand until after the Resurrection.
Two thousand years later, we do understand. Jesus was arrested, suffered, and died for our sins. Jesus paid the price for our transgressions, and He arose from the dead. Have you accepted Jesus' sacrifice for your sins?
