Taking the twelve aside, Jesus said to them, “See, we are going up to Jerusalem, and everything that is written about the Son of Man by the prophets will be accomplished. For he will be handed over to the Gentiles; and he will be mocked and insulted and spat upon. After they have flogged him, they will kill him, and on the third day he will rise again.” But they understood nothing about all these things; in fact, what he said was hidden from them, and they did not grasp what was said.
We often don’t see things coming that in hindsight we think we should have, and perhaps in some cases that’s for the best. God, in his great mercy has not given us the ability to see into the future.
