There are many very useful remarks on this transaction, by the late venerable Bp. Porteus.

Jesus replied, "Foxes have dens and birds have nests, but the Son of Man has no place to lay his head."
He warned them not to tell others about him.
From that time on Jesus began to explain to his disciples that he must go to Jerusalem and suffer many things at the hands of the elders, the chief priests and the teachers of the law, and that he must be killed and on the third day be raised to life.
When they looked up, they saw no one except Jesus.
But I tell you, Elijah has already come, and they did not recognize him, but have done to him everything they wished. In the same way the Son of Man is going to suffer at their hands."
He replied, "Because you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there,' and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you."
