The Evangeliad (24:48-52)


Section 24:48-52 (corresponding to Mark 9:30-32; Luke 9:43-45; Matt. 17:22-23)

Then moving on, they passed through Galilee,
Not making it known, going quietly,
For Christ was teaching his followers then
Of what would take place in Jerusalem.

Jesus said to them, "Let these words you hear
Penetrate your hearts, sink into your ears:
The Son of Man will be captured by men,
To die and on the third day rise again."

But his disciples did not understand,
Could not grasp the death of the Son of Man;
And afraid to ask him about all this,
They pressed on in sorrow and in distress.
