Getting an Earfull

While everyone was amazed at all the things He was doing, He told His disciples, “Let these words sink in: the Son of Man is about to be betrayed into the hands of men.”

But they did not understand this statement; it was concealed from them so that they could not grasp it, and they were afraid to ask Him about it.
(Luke 9:43-45 Holman Christian Standard Bible ®©)

What we let go deep in our ears affects us. What doesn’t get deep gets lost somehow.

How was this information concealed from them?

What do we need to learn about how to prevent His words from being concealed from us, so that we cannot grasp them?

Are we afraid to expect explanations from Him?
