When all the people who had gathered to witness this sight saw what took place, they beat their breasts and went away.
But all those who knew him, including the women who had followed him from Galilee, stood at a distance,
watching these things.
It was a time of heartfelt repentance for the people, and sorrow for the disciples. But if they had heeded his words, there could be hope as well.
