Let Me Repeat This Truth

Matthew 17:22-23

Repetition is a valuable tool in education.  We have another story of Jesus reminding His disciples of His mission.  Christ's death was not an accident.  Christ didn't fall into a trap or over play His hand.  The Cross was was planned from eternity.  Peter spoke of this in Acts 2:22-23

Men of Israel, listen to thee words:  Jesus the Nazarene, a man attested to you by God with miracles and wonders and signs which God performed through Him in your midst, just as you yourselves know--this Man, delivered over by the predetermined plan and foreknowledge of God, you nailed to a cross by the hands of godless men and put Him to death.

The disciples needed to get this point, but it grieved them because Christ's death did not fit into their agenda.  They were thinking of an earthly kingdom., while Christ was preparing for the eternal kingdom.

Thankful Thought:  Our home is not here, but in Heaven.
