Road Signs to the Cross - The Turn

  1. 1. Jesus asked his disciples, „Who do people say that I am?‟ …Peter answered him, „You are the Messiah (Xristos).‟ And he sternly ordered them not to tell anyone about him. Mark 8:27-30
  2. 2. “Then he began to teach them that the Son of Man must undergo great suffering, and be rejected by the elders, the chief priests, and the scribes, and be killed, and after three days rise again. He said all this quite openly. And Peter took him aside and began to rebuke him.” Mark 8:27-30
  3. 3. Mark 8:27-30
  4. 4. “In my vision at night I looked, and there before me was one like a son of man, coming with the clouds of heaven.” Daniel 7:13
  5. 5. “Never before this moment had anyone in Israel ever connected suffering with the messiah.” Tim Keller
  6. 6. “I could accept Jesus as a martyr, an embodiment of sacrifice, and a divine teacher. His death on the cross was a great example to the world, BUT that there was anything like a mysterious or miraculous virtue in it, my heart could not accept.” Gandhi
  7. 7. “If any want to become my followers, let them deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me. For those who want to save their life will lose it, and those who lose their life for my sake, and for the sake of the gospel, will save it.” Mark 8:34-35
  8. 8. “Give up yourself, and you will find your real self. Lose your life and you will save it. Submit to death, death of your ambitions and favourite wishes. Keep back nothing. Nothing that you have not given away will be really yours. Nothing in you that has not died will ever be raised from the dead. Look for yourself, and you will find in the long run only hatred, loneliness, despair, rage, ruin, and decay. But look for Christ and you will find Him, and with Him everything else thrown in.” C. S. Lewis
