There is no doubt that Jesus was an important person. Although he lived over 2,000 years ago, his impact reaches into every corner of our culture. As a Galilean peasant, he never held a political office, never traveled more than 100 miles from his home, and never had more than a handful of followers during his time on earth. Yet, his stories include healings, miracles over nature, and a myriad of amazing teachings. As Mark gives us the story of Jesus, the first half of this Gospel has answered one basic question, "Who is this man?" We have seen snapshots of Jesus life, with every story showing us that Jesus was so much more than a good man and teacher. He was God in human flesh. The second half of this book begins answering a different question, "So what?" Rather than focusing on the crowds, Jesus is investing in his twelve disciples, showing them how his story will intersect with theirs, and teaching them that true greatness in God's Kingdom looks drastically different than their ideas of greatness.
