On a dusty road leading up to Jerusalem, Jesus made a determined walk toward what He knew would result in His death. The disciples on the road with Him didn’t understand. Alistair Begg gives us a glimpse into the weighty lessons presented in these dramatic moments. More
They Just Don't Get It, Do We?In the final weeks of His life, Jesus set out for Jerusalem. Along the way, He began His most explicit teaching on the purpose of His ministry: to die on a cross and rise from the dead. The disciples could not comprehend the significance of His teaching because their concept of the Messiah did not include one who would die in shame, but a warrior who would lead them to triumph and glory. Jesus was focused on His pending suffering, death, and resurrection, but the disciples focused on their own importance. They just didn’t get it! As Alistair Begg explains, we are more like the disciples than we care to admit. Many professing Christians trivialize the Gospel message by denying the reality of persecution, suffering, and eternal reward. Like the disciples, our pride often hinders our ability to understand the truth. Jesus makes it clear that to follow Him demands a radical shift in our thinking. His disciples just didn’t get it. Do we?
