Mark 9:30-50 – Following the second Passion prediction, which emphasized how people treat Christ, Jesus continues with a body of teaching describing how the followers of Jesus should treat other people: Men will treat Christ as sinful men do. But those who follow Jesus cannot be like regular sinful men.
Here’s Jesus point in all this: The Gospel redefines achievement.
We have a way of thinking about achievement, success or first place. The death of Jesus is the worst expression of that. But, in his suffering, death and resurrection, Jesus redefines what true achievement is.
