They Were All Ears

Whenever Jesus tells them [the disciples] about the cross that they will bear, they are all ears; not really knowing what he is talking about, they nevertheless responded affirmatively.  They thought they could handle their own burdens.  “What Would Jesus Do?” is something that they thought they were ready to answer if anyone asked.  It is the work that Jesus alone could do for them – his death and resurrection – that they found beside the point.
