Saturday April 8th Matthew 17 : 22-23
"When the disciples all came together in Galilee, Jesus said to them, 'The Son of Man is about to be handed over to the people who will kill him; but three days later he will be raised to life' the disciples became very sad."

In this passage it explains that Jesus would be betrayed and that he would be delivered to be killed. Jesus was foretelling his own sufferings and could be giving the disciples a cue about his death. Jesus was going to be murdered and three days later he would be raised alive. I believe he knew that he would be betrayed and killed and yet when he spoke of death he spoke of rising again. His absence would not be long: he would soon return to them. The disciples still became sad at this, as any human would be about losing a loved one. To me this brings joy, even though Jesus is telling them that he is about to be betrayed. To some people, who don't want anything to do with God, talk of Jesus being raised is very difficult.

Dear Lord, thank you for sending the light of your son into our world. Even in times of suffering, the light of Jesus shines brightly and can help others see the way.
