A Strange Pep Talk (Mark 10:32-52)

When we face the trials of life we want a strong leader to tell us what to do.  If we are honest we really want the leader to tell us that it is all going to be okay.  You cannot find a better or stronger leader than God God as He is the one who made us and knows us.  So, you would think that Christ would tell His disciples that it is all going to be okay when they enter Jerusalem. Well, this is not what Christ does at all.  Why does Christ give such a strange pep talk prior to their entrance into Jerusalem?
