“The Son of Man is to be handed over to men and they will kill him.” –Mark 9:31
When a prediction comes true, we marvel at the foresight of the person who saw the future coming. Modern-day seers include economists, business leaders, inventors, and most moms. It’s not a crystal ball they’re reading, but the signs of the times. A thoughtful person can often make a very good guess where a particular route might lead given enough consideration of the clues.
Did Jesus predict his execution because of divine foreknowledge or because he was alert, intelligent, and well versed in the ways of the human heart? Factor in that he was definitely reading the scroll of the prophet Isaiah and possibly the Book of Wisdom. Great minds converge on the understanding that people smitten by power will do what they must to stay in power. Between the Romans and the religious leaders, the wind was blowing in the direction of violence.
