Jesus told his disciples that he would need to go to Jerusalem to die. Peter rejected the idea. But it wasn’t just any type of death. Jesus, the Lord of Lords and King of Kings would have to die by crucifixion. Why was this not a surprise to God while unbearably hard to accept by Jesus’ disciples who had trained with him for three years. Jesus would take the most horrible death by crucifixion (the world’s greatest injustice) and give it a radically whole new meaning for the future of the world (justice for the world). While spiritually true, it was still the saddest day on earth.
