Until after the cross...

The riddles concerning Christ were hidden until after the cross.

While Jesus ministered, he showed his disciples the riddles, but they did not understand them. [1] [2]
Only after the cross could he open their eyes to the prophesies and make them understand. [3]
  1. Mt 16:21 ¶ From that time forth began Jesus to shew unto his disciples, how that he must go unto Jerusalem, and suffer many things of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised again the third day.
  2. Mr 8:17 And when Jesus knew [it], he saith unto them, Why reason ye, because ye have no bread? perceive ye not yet, neither understand? have ye your heart yet hardened?
  3. Lu 24:31 And their eyes were opened, and they knew him; and he vanished out of their sight.
