October 21, 2018 - Bless their hearts ;-)

For the third time, Jesus takes the disciples aside and explains in great detail what is going to happen soon. That he is about to endure the most painful, humiliating, unjust execution that is possible for a first century Jewish man to experience. Naked. Tortured. Scorned. Mutilated. Dead.

Their reaction is typical: “Sure, sure, we understand. But after the revolution, when you set up your kingdom, which of us will be your right hand man?”

Bless their hearts…
