!! Power of false conviction
The disciples were convinced in the belief that Jesus was going to become an earthly king of the Jewish nation.
Even though Jesus specifically said that He was going to die and be raised three days later, they were so stuck on the idea of an earthly kingdom that their minds didn't accept such a clear statement as truth.
Do not be so stuck on an idea that you do not let the Word of God register within your heart and mind.
Even if you have had a belief that you believed your whole life, do not just accept it because your childhood pastor said it; open your mind and test it against the Word and see if what you believed for so long is really the truth.
You have nothing to lose and all to gain.
If it is the truth, you'll have deeper conviction. If it isn't, it's time to figure out what IS the truth.
