Jesus keeps telling his disciples about his future death and Resurrection. They don't get it. I can not blame them. He spoke so often in parables (which he DID explain to the disciples), they must be sure this is a parable as well. One they don't get. Yet. Because it's not a parable. Once they see he was speaking literally (and they won't until it happens), it will all make sense.
What's up with people rebuking the blind man from calling out to Jesus? I would think compassion would dictate calling along side him and pointing him out to Jesus (so he can't miss him). But then, maybe I'm supposed to be seeing myself in the rebukers, just as I ought to see myself in the latecomers to the vineyard.
