Robertson's Word Pictures of the New Testament

Matthew 20:17

Apart (kat' idian).
This is the prediction in Matthew of the cross (16:21; 17:22; 20:17). "Aside by themselves" (Moffatt). The verb is parelaben. Jesus is having his inward struggle (Mark 10:32) and makes one more effort to get the Twelve to understand him.
