Luke 9:43 Commentary - Expository Notes with Practical Observations on the New Testament

Observable it is how frequently our Saviour forewarned his disciples of his approaching sufferings, and as the time of his suffering drew nearer, he did more frequently warn them of his death. But all this was little enough to arm them against the scandal of the cross; and to reconcile them to the thoughts of his suffering condition; how an ordinary prophet should be delivered into the hands of men they could easily understand, but how the Messiah should be so treated they could not apprehend; for the disciples had taken up the common opinion, that the Messiah was to be a temporal prince, and should conquer and reign here upon earth; and how to reconcile this with being killed, they could no ways apprehend; and they were afraid to be too particular in their enquiries about it.

Now, from Christ's so frequently warning his disciples of his approaching sufferings, we may gather that we can never hear, either too often or too much, of the doctrine of the cross, nor be too frequently instructed in our duty to prepare for a suffering state; as Christ went from his cross to his crown, from a state of abasement to a state of exaltation, so must all his disciples and followers expect likewise.
