Seeing Shame

Mark 8:31-38

Rev. Barrett Owen

The only time in scripture that Jesus calls someone Satan is right here, and he says it to Peter. Peter’s shame is what we need to see because it closely resembles ours. He didn’t want Jesus to die but rather conquer the world as it was on earth. He could not accept another way, and this was his shame. I’m not sure this is much different today.
