Luke 18:31-34

Jesus Foretells His Death a Third Time
31 And taking the twelve, he 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. 32 For he will be delivered over to the Gentiles and will be mocked and shamefully treated and spit upon. 33 And after flogging him, they will kill him, and on the third day he will rise.” 34 But they understood none of these things. This saying was hidden from them, and they did not grasp what was said.

It has been said that all twelve disciples had Alzheimer’s Disease, because none of them remember that Jesus predicted his death three times and they can’t remember.  Today’s reading has Jesus’s third prophecy regarding his death.  Listen to the details that he gives.  “32 For he will be delivered over to the Gentiles and will be mocked and shamefully treated and spit upon. 33 And after flogging him, they will kill him, and on the third day he will rise.”  Knowing what actually happened to Jesus, we can verify the prophecy.

    Delivered over to the Gentiles       Yes
    Mocked                                           Yes
    Shamefully treated                         Yes
    Spit on                                            Yes
    Flogged                                           Yes
    They will kill him                             Yes
    Third day he will rise ???                 YES

Ok, I might could get lucky and get the first six right, but the seventh??  I would have never even thought of it.  The first six are amazingly accurate, but the seventh is the cake winner!!  Yes Jesus is a prophet and his prophecies do come true... or will.  He did promise that He is coming back.

I pray: O Lord, three times you predicted your death with amazing accuracy... how can we ever doubt you.  Please forgive us when we do and help us in our unbelief.  Amen.

Look at the Words say they "fell away". The had it, but lost it. Just like the Bible says your name can be blotted out of the Book of Life.
