Luke 18:31–34 (NLT)
Taking the twelve disciples aside, Jesus said, “Listen, we’re going up to Jerusalem, where all the predictions of the prophets concerning the Son of Man will come true. He will be handed over to the Romans, and he will be mocked, treated shamefully, and spit upon. They will flog him with a whip and kill him, but on the third day he will rise again.” But they didn’t understand any of this. The significance of his words was hidden from them, and they failed to grasp what he was talking about.

There is listening, then there is understanding, and then, at a far deeper level, there is a comprehension of the significance of what was just said. This requires understanding why something was said and its expected impact upon those it was spoken to. We must learn to not just listen with our ears but listen with our hearts and with our minds engaged to understand significance.
