This is the third and last explicit prediction to Christ’s disciples concerning His coming Passion and it is the most detailed of the three. With that in mind, you would think this would be a very slow journey. Instead, Jesus set His face like a flint toward Jerusalem (Isaiah 50:7) and the disciples are astonished (Mark 10:24, 32). In verse 24, they were astonished at His Words. In verse 32, they are astonished at His urgent determination to get to Jerusalem to complete the task for which He had come (Matthew 20:28).
