Mark 10:33-34 “We’re going up to Jerusalem,” Jesus said. “and the Son of Man will be delivered over to the chief priests and the teachers of the law. They will condemn Him to death and will hand Him over to the Gentiles, who will mock Him and spit on Him, flog Him and kill Him. Three days later He will rise.”
Jesus knew Caiphas (the high priest) would hand Him over to Pilate and the Romans.
Jesus knew they’d choose Barrabas over Him.
Jesus knew they would mock Him.
Jesus knew they would spit on Him.
Jesus knew they would flog Him.
Jesus knew they would kill Him.
Jesus knew it all, and yet went thru it all. He explicitly predicted His death at least three times during his ministry. Being the Son of God afforded Him the foreknowledge to understand not only that He’d die but the manner in which He would die. But Jesus also knew that He’d come back from the dead three days later.
Jesus knew and Jesus knows you. But He really wants you to know Him. Our hope is that this Easter you come to know Jesus better. If you’d like to know more about a relationship with Jesus contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We’d love to tell you more!
