Luke 18:31-34 ESV: [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. 

  • The crucifixion is not an accident.  God planned it.  
  • God planned Jesus’ suffering and resurrection, for our benefit.  
  • We don’t want to miss the significance of Jesus’ death and resurrection.
