Die and Rise Again?; Learning Under Jesus

Note: This series is written as a first-person narrative to present Jesus in the context he walked in with the unknown disciple that narrates introducing my thoughts and sparking more ideas with his questions. Enjoy.

We began moving in the direction of Jerusalem. While Jesus walked ahead, I had a sense of astonishment for some reason. The other people that were following us were murmuring in fear. I couldn’t figure it out.

We stopped to rest. Jesus beckoned us twelve to the side. 

We are going up to Jerusalem, and everything that is written by the prophets about the Son of Man will be fulfilled. He will be delivered over to the Gentiles. They will mock him, insult him, and spit on him; they will flog him and kill him. On the third day, he will rise again.”

Jesus has said this twice before. However, we’re never sure what he’s talking about. Die, and rise again? What’s that mean?
