They went on from there and passed through Galilee. And he did not want anyone to know, for he was teaching his disciples, saying to them, “The Son of Man is going to be delivered into the hands of men, and they will kill him. And when he is killed, after three days he will rise.” But they did not understand the saying, and were afraid to ask him. (Mark 9:30-32 ESV)
Hymn ELH 260:3-4 Now Let Triumphant Faith Dispel
Who now His people shall accuse?
For God has justified!
Who now His people shall condemn?
The Lamb of God has died!
And He who died has ris’n again
Triumphant from the grave;
At God’s right hand for us He pleads,
Eternally to save.
Jesus, my Savior, thank You for following Your Father’s plan for the salvation of all. Forgive my sins and give me joy and peace in the certain hope that just as You rose from the dead after three days, I too will rise from the grave to eternal life. Amen.
