They left that place and were passing through Galilee. Jesus did not want anyone to know where he was because he was teaching his disciples. He taught them, “The Son of Man will be betrayed and handed over to people. They will kill him, but on the third day he will come back to life.”
The disciples didn’t understand what he meant and were afraid to ask him. (Mark 9:30-32 GW)
Jesus knew His time was short. He focused on teaching His disciples to prepare them for future ministry. He told them plainly what was to come--His death and resurrection as the Messiah. They were afraid to ask what He meant, and show their ignorance.
What do you lack in understanding? Ask! Don't let fear of failure or pride keep you in the dark. ©Word-Strong_2014
