Transformational Moments

Book: Mark

As we continue journeying through the book of Mark, the chapters have been building to answer, who is Jesus? In Chapter 8, we receive the answer from Peter: Jesus is the Messiah.  Jesus continues his teachings and is clear that the Son of Man must suffer; Peter can’t believe it to be so. This is not the definition he believes to be true of a Messiah. Just as with Peter, our worldly expectations of what the Messiah should be do not align with Heavenly design. But turning and looking at his disciples, he rebuked Peter and said, “Get behind me, Satan! For you are setting your mind not on divine things but on human things.” Mark 8:33 As Jesus redefines what it means to be the Messiah, because of Jesus, we can also be transformed.
