In today’s reading Matthew 17:22-23 stood out to me because of the Disciple’s limited understanding of why Jesus came, 22 When the disciples came together in Galilee, he said to them, “The Son of Man is going to be betrayed into the hands of men. 23 They will kill him, and on the third day he will be raised to life.” And the disciples were filled with grief. The disciples were upset because they did not want Jesus to be betrayed or to suffer, but they missed the bugger picture of the resurrection. Jesus came to earth for one reason and that was to save us. Jesus did this in the most difficult of circumstances, but He did it anyway because He loved us all so much.
