Jesus Tells about
His Death the Third Time
Bible Study Lesson: Matthew
we are going up to Jerusalem; and the Son of Man
will be delivered to the chief priests and scribes,
and they will condemn Him to death, and will hand
Him over to the Gentiles to mock and scourge and
and on the third day He will
be raised up. -
Matthew 20:18-19 NASB
For the Third Time Jesus
Predicts His Death and Resurrection
We can look back at the
story and discern
exactly how it will turn out.
We've heard these
verses since we were
children so there is no doubt that Christ will be
crucified, he will die on the cross, and on the
third day he will rise again.
But, Jesus told this story
three times before it happened!
Why Didn't the Disciples
"Get It" ?
We have the knowledge of
hindsight which gives us the complete story of
Jesus but the disciples were only experiencing the
"here and now".
They did not understand that
Christ had to die in order to bring others to his
kingdom in heaven.
So, the disciples argued
would be the greatest
and who would receive the most power in Christ's
kingdom not suspecting that their reward would not
be of this earth.
After the death and
resurrection of Jesus, the disciples would come to
understand what we already know ...
- Christ lived
- Christ died
- Christ rose again on the
third day in order to take on the sins of people -
including you and I.
