Although the Old Testament predicted the suffering of the Messiah, the disciples were blind to the truth that Jesus had always planned to suffer and die. In this message from Luke 18, Alistair Begg contrasts the disciples' blindness with the physical blindness of a man who had better spiritual insight into Jesus' identity as Messiah. The blind man knew exactly what he needed—and knew that Christ was the only one who could give it to him.
31And 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.
