Seeing Through the Storm - The Gospel of Matthew, Part 71

The Disciples were deeply grieved when Jesus told them he would die. They can’t see past the storm. All they can see when Jesus talks about his death is the abyss and fearful ultimate end that death is for so many people.. The disciples can’t see past the storm and so they despair. But Jesus can see past the storm.

Matthew 17:22-23 
When they came together in Galilee, he said to them, “The Son of Man is going to be betrayed into the hands of men. They will kill him, and on the third day he will be raised to life.” And the disciples were filled with grief.
