Who Is Jesus? (Mark 8:27 – 9:29)

Who Is Jesus?  (Mark 8:27 – 9:29)
If the purpose of Mark’s gospel is to inspire a lasting response in word and deed to the true identity of Jesus Christ, then this passage once again focuses on Jesus’ true identity.  Mark clarifies Jesus’ identity, mission, calling, and His ability for us so that each of us can make an informed decision to follow Him or not to follow Him.
