'I'd like to make this clear to you . . . .'

Mark 9:2-9

The disciples were often baffled by Jesus. He was always doing unexpected things: talking to women he didn’t know, touching unclean people, slipping away just when someone was ready to make him king. And things were going to get stranger still. This man they believed to be the messiah, God’s anointed one, would be arrested like a common criminal and executed.

Jesus tried to help them, tried to explain what would happen and why. Even when Peter, James and John saw him bathed in glory on the mountaintop, they weren’t able to understand. That would only happen later, on the day we call Easter.

God’s peace,
Mary
