Luke 9:21-23 The Passion Translation (TPT)

21 Jesus gave them strict orders not to tell this to anyone yet, saying, 22 “The Son of Man[a] is destined to experience great suffering and face complete rejection by the Jewish leaders and religious hierarchy.[b] He will be killed and raised back to life on the third day.”

What it Means to Follow Jesus

23 Jesus said to all of his followers, “If you truly desire to be my disciple, you must disown your life completely, embrace my ‘cross’[c] as your own, and surrender to my ways.


  1. Luke 9:22 Or “the true Man.”
