And while they were gathering together in Galilee, Jesus said to them, “The Son of Man is about to be handed over into the hands of men, Bible other translations

“about to be.” (Lenski; Wuest’s Expanded New Testament).

“handed over.” Jesus’ teaching that he (the Messiah) was going to be betrayed, suffer, and die, was so contrary to what the disciples believed that they could not grasp his clear teaching about it. See commentary on Luke 18:34.
