Scripture for Sunday February 7

Mark 8:27 – 9:8

Perhaps they had all been thinking it, but Peter was the one who put it into words. Jesus was the promised Messiah, that the Jews had been waiting for so long. He had finally come to put things right. But it wasn’t going to happen the way Peter and the others expected. The way to put things right led through suffering and death.

The scene on the mountaintop was probably more along the lines of what Peter had in mind, Jesus revealed in glory. But it soon became clear that was only a foretaste of some future glory, and the way ahead still led through suffering and death.
