Matthew 26:31-32

Posted by joncooper

Matthew 26:31: “Then saith Jesus unto them, All ye shall be offended because of me this night: for it is written, I will smite the shepherd, and the sheep of the flock shall be scattered abroad.
32 But after I am risen again, I will go before you into Galilee.”

Notice that Jesus knew exactly what was going to happen, and He told His disciples in advance. However, they still missed it, and they did not believe Him. Even though they had seen Jesus perform countless miracles (including raising someone from the dead!) and even though Jesus had never, ever been wrong before, His disciples still missed it. Peter said “Well, I’m not going to deny you”, but he did – just as Jesus had said.

How good are we at believing the things Jesus has told us? Are we faithless, or believing?
