Coming Home: Instruction with the Master (Part 1)
Mark 9:30-40

Our text picks up today as Jesus and His disciples continue their journey around the area between the city of Bethsaida and the region south of Caesarea Philippi – the lands of the Gentiles (note: 8:22-27). Recently, during this trip Peter declared that Jesus was the Messiah, in one breath. In the next breath, Peter rebuked Jesus for making the claim that He would soon suffer, die and be raised from the dead in Jerusalem. To which Jesus said to him, “Get behind me Satan. You do not have in mind the concerns of God, but merely human concerns.” Soon after this event, Jesus took Peter, James and John with Him to the top of a high mountain and was transfigured before them, speaking with Elijah and Moses. After suggesting that they build three shrines, Peter was again corrected, this time by the Almighty with the words, “This is my Son, whom I love. Listen to him!” Coming down from the mountain, they found the other disciples arguing with the Pharisees and with a man whose son had an impure spirit, which they could not cast out. After casting out the demon, Jesus decided to bring the disciples home from the journey. It was time for some rest and needed, concentrated instruction.
