Mark 10:32 “They were on their way up to Jerusalem, with Jesus leading the way, and the disciples were astonished, while those who followed were afraid.”

Jesus was purposefully walking towards Jerusalem…”His face set like a flint.” Isaiah 50:7 tells us…and His disciples were stunned, shocked, & stupefied. Didn’t Jesus realize how determined the Jewish leaders were to kill Him? And now here He was leading them back into the city and a likely ambush? No wonder they were terrified & fearful. Even though the Lord had explained what was to happen…the disciples couldn’t comprehend it, let alone put all the pieces of the puzzle together to get the big picture. All they could do was follow Him. Many times in our life we’ll find our self in the same place…nothing makes sense…we’re frightened out of of mind…and all we can physically muster is to slowly plod behind Him as Jesus leads the way.
