"Then the other disciple, who had reached the tomb first, also went in, and he saw and believed;for as yet they did not understand the Scripture, that he must rise from the dead."
John 20: 8-9
--Even these two men, Peter and John, two of Jesus' three closest disciples, his BFFs, didn't understand what he meant when he said he would die and rise until after they saw the empty tomb. The glory of God was hard for them to grasp, despite being under Jesus' wing for three years--listening, watching, learning from God himself. How much harder is it, at times, for us?
