What part of “and he will be raised on the third day” do I not understand?

If only Jesus would speak clearly and directly to me, then I would understand. Oh really?

Matthew 20: 17-19 ESV

And as Jesus was going up to Jerusalem, he took the twelve disciples aside, and on the way he said to them,

“See, we are going up to Jerusalem. And the Son of Man will be delivered over to the chief priests and scribes, and they will condemn him to death and deliver him over to the Gentiles to be mocked and flogged and crucified, and he will be raised on the third day.”

Jesus clearly stated his agenda, and still they didn’t comprehend.

What part of “and he will be raised on the third day.” did I miss?

I hear what I am ready and able to hear. Later on I might be able to hear and remember: “He is not here, for he has risen, as he said. Come, see the place where he lay.” Matthew 28:6
