Jesus, in ear shoot of others, said that he was troubled, knowing His death was imminent, yet yields to the design and plan of His Father. He then announces that what is to follow is judgment, and even that the ruler of this world, meaning Satan, will be judged and cast out. In the same breath He says that He will be lifted up, meaning crucified. The crowd does not understand, but Jesus urges them to believe what He is saying. At this point Jesus departed and hid Himself, since despite the many signs He had done, still there was massive unbelief, just as Isaiah had prophesied centuries before. Still many of even the religious authorities believed in Him.
