Few Christians today realize that Jesus’ Twelve Apostles were ignorant of the scope and vital significance of Jesus’ death, burial, and resurrection. Just consider all the verses referenced and the comments for each.
1. Matthew 16:21-22 – When Jesus first began to tell them of His death, Peter tried to prevent it.
2. Mark 8:31-32 – In another account Peter rebuked the Lord for speaking about His death.
