Christ Suffering for Us
This is just a compelling passage. There’s this moment in time when the disciples settle “Who is Jesus?” There’s this moment when they believe and are convinced and confess that Jesus is God, He is the Son of God, He is the Sovereign God, He is the eternal God, He is God come into His creation in human form, He is the Messiah, the Promised Redeemer. He is the Gospel, He is Lord of Lords and King of Kings, He is our Hope, He is our Righteousness, He is our Justifier (justification), and He is our Union.
However, they were not prepared for what Jesus is about to teach them. What is it that is so upsetting that it would cause Peter to try to rebuke Jesus?
