Mary knew something her other children doubted . . . but much of Jesus' family thought him crazy, this whole pilgrimage to Jerusalem on this particular Passover would be a cruel ending but would show a radically different kind of love, radically different kind of kingdom, not conquering by blade of a sword or the edict of a throne but by being nailed to a tree
32 And they were on the road, going up to Jerusalem, and Jesus was walking ahead of them. And they were amazed, and those who followed were afraid. And taking the twelve again, he began to tell them what was to happen to him, 33 saying, “See, we are going up to Jerusalem, and the Son of Man will be delivered over to the chief priests and the scribes, and they will condemn him to death and deliver him over to the Gentiles. 34 And they will mock him and spit on him, and flog him and kill him. And after three days he will rise.” (ESV)
