I can’t even imagine what it was like to walk on earth with Jesus. The disciples had been with him three and a half years. They were “discipled” in the things of God. They saw faith in action. They saw Jesus feed the multitudes. They saw him open blind eyes. They saw him heal the sick. They saw him curse a fig tree and it died.
They depended upon him for everything they were going to do. Now, he is telling them that he was going to go away. John 16:4-6
“But these things have I told you, that when the time shall come, ye may remember that I told you of them. And these things I said not unto you at the beginning, because I was with you. But now I go my way to him that sent me; and none of you asketh me, Whither goest thou? But because I have said these things unto you, sorrow hath filled your heart.”
Jesus didn’t tell them at the beginning of his ministry that he would be leaving.
