Part two of our series in the book of Mark
In the Gospel of Mark, we meet Jesus. Mark is the story of Jesus, the greatest person in all of history. We discover who Jesus is and what he came to do. We witness his power, we are amazed at his wisdom, we are touched by his grace and we are called to follow him as his disciples. We see him lay down his life on the cross as our Saviour and rise to life again as our Lord.
Join us as we look at how the second half of Mark links clearly with Isaiah 53:
Peter’s exclamation in 8:29 (“You are the Christ!”) serves as a transition point in the narrative. It shows Peter beginning to grasp the identity of Jesus as the Authoritative King, but not understanding how this King could suffer and die - a major theme throughout the second half of Mark.
