It makes one think of the Lord’s words to the apostles…
“There is much more I would like to tell you, but you cannot bear them now.” (John 16:12)
What would be unbearable to a first century Jewish male?
How about the notion that some day a Jewish woman (Mary) would be so honored? Or, perhaps that their beloved Jerusalem would be destroyed by the Romans and that the very city of the enemy would become the new “Holy City?”
Don’t forget… Salem was a Chaananite city, before it became Jebus - a Jebusite city, before it became Yerushalem (Jerusalem; or the new Salem.)
