The Suffering Servant

in Jesus Salvation

Hey I'm Ron Moore with the Bible Minute.

The disciples had just witnessed an amazing miracle at the hands of Jesus. Luke 9:43-45 says this: "While everyone was marveling at all that Jesus did, he said to his disciples, 'Listen carefully to what I am about to tell you: The Son of Man is going to be delivered into the hands of men.' But they did not understand what this meant."

The idea of Jesus suffering was more than the disciples could grasp, more than they could handle. They just didn't get it. And too many still don't get it.

They like to have all that the Miracle Worker has provided for them. But the cross and our response to it gets in the way of what we want "our Jesus" to be. How about you? What do you want your Jesus to be?
