We come to the point in the book of Mark that we might call ‘the hinge’ – we start to see the two stories of Christ that emerge – the one who does great things becomes the one who suffers.
People often think ‘if you could ask God one question what would it be? But if God could ask you just one question what do you think would be the most important question? Maybe something close to ‘what do you think of Christ’ or Jesus might ask ‘who do you say I am’?
If we get the answer right it makes all the difference.
