Notes from the Journey with the Disciples – 25

25. After he was raised from the dead, his disciples recalled what he had said (John 2:22).
Though Jesus’ statement about destroying the temple and he would rebuild it in three days came in the earliest days of His ministry, the disciples didn’t understand it until after His resurrection. That’s how things often work for us. We don’t understand the moment in the moment, but once the dust has cleared and the questions have been answered, things begin to make more sense. Clearly, had Jesus wanted His disciples to understand His words, He likely would have taken time to explain them. But, understanding wasn’t as important as following. They did, and in the course of time, the truth He spoke came into view.
