In this first chapter we analyze Christ's apparently not so happy knowledge that His death and resurrection had taken the disciples by surprise. That is to the eleven as well as the two on the Emmaus Road. Why was Jesus so stern with them? Take a look at Jesus' words to His unbelieving disciples on the Emmaus road: And He said to them, “O foolish men and slow of heart to believe in all that the prophets have spoken! Was it not necessary for the Christ to suffer these things and to enter into His glory? How were they supposed to know about Jesus' passion beforehand? Or to the eleven disciples He said: Afterward He appeared to the eleven themselves as they were reclining at the table; and He reproached them for their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they had not believed those who had seen Him after He had risen. (Mark 16:14) Where could these disciples have had beforehand knowledge of Christ's sufferings? Leading question: Will answers to these questions lead us to what happened to Jesus during the three days in question?
