Suffer and rejection (Lk 17:25-17:25)

“But first,

The Son of Man

Must endure

Much suffering.

He will be

Rejected

By this generation.”

 

πρῶτον δὲ δεῖ αὐτὸν πολλὰ παθεῖν καὶ ἀποδοκιμασθῆναι ἀπὸ τῆς γενεᾶς ταύτης

 

Luke uniquely indicated that Jesus said that first (πρῶτον) the Son of Man must endure much suffering (δὲ δεῖ αὐτὸν πολλὰ παθεῖν).  He will be rejected (καὶ ἀποδοκιμασθῆναι) by this generation (πὸ τῆς γενεᾶς ταύτης).  Luke alone had Jesus predict his coming suffering and rejection by his own contemporaries, his own generation.  The other synoptics have this prediction about the suffering Jesus also with less emphasis on the current generation.  Does your generation reject the Son of Man, Jesus?
