An Ill-Conceived Rebuke

From Series: Encore 2016

Mark 8:31-9:1  (ID: 2502)

Expecting power, glory, and triumph, many were initially eager to follow Jesus, but they quickly turned away when His teaching predicted His suffering, death, and resurrection. Even Peter rebuked Jesus because His teaching was inconsistent with their expectations. As Alistair Begg points out, many Christians today also trivialize the message of Jesus in favor of what appeals to our expectations. Following Jesus means embracing the difficult message of the cross.


Jesus Foretells His Death and Resurrection

31And he began to teach them that the Son of Man must suffer many things and be rejected by the elders and the chief priests and the scribes and be killed, and after three days rise again.
