The Messianic Secret
Why would Jesus keep his identity a secret??
Jesus is inviting us to to believe His word because of WHO He is rather than WHAT He does
Two big questions:
1.) Who is this person?
2.) Will you follow Him?

Lunatic and traitor

How does Jesus change our perspective on suffering?
What cards have you been dealt?
Jesus as "Suffering Servant"
"For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many." - Mark 10:45
Jesus as "Professor"
Teaching with authority
1.) Mark 1:16-20 - Jesus calls the disciples
2.) Mark 4:26-29 - parables! What's different?
Jesus as "Healer"
Two necessary elements:
1.) Why does the miracle come after faith?
2.) Dynamis = "power"
Who provides the best example of bringing good through suffering?
What does this look like for me?
Suffering Servant Reflection:
Pray with various chapters of Mark. Write down an encouraging verse within the context of suffering. The ones below may give you a good start, but you can use any verse that fits:
Your paper should have the bible verse, something you're offering for them, and an encouraging note/prayer for your buddy.
Between now and test day, slip your paper into your buddy's locker. Pray for them each day. On test day we will reveal who your buddy is.
The Way of Discipleship
Through good times and bad.....
Christ continues to emphasize service, but his disciples still didn't understand...
To be a disciple, we must be prepared to suffer as Christ suffered and to follow in his footsteps
What does this message mean for our modern times?
Praying for one another
It's important to remember that we do not suffer alone and that Christ is always with us
Prayer partners for exams!

What does Christ teach us about suffering?
Suffering - hope - redemption
