Matthew 17:22–23 (ESV)

Jesus Again Foretells Death, Resurrection

22 As they were gathering in Galilee, Jesus said to them, “The Son of Man is about to be delivered into the hands of men, 23 and they will kill him, and he will be raised on the third day.” And they were greatly distressed.


This is the second time that Jesus predicts his death.  This is a simpler prediction in which he does not predict who will kill him.  He does say “they will kill him” and that “he will be raised on the third day.”  This is news that they still do not want to hear… because they don’t understand the plan of Salvation.


I pray: O Lord, I pray “Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done.”  I cannot stop your plan, but use me to reach out to others and to share the Gospel.  Amen.

"Depart in Peace" What a blessing when the world is so chaotic! Followers of Christ can find their peace in Him.
