LESSON 5 The Kingdom Breaks Through Mark 8.22-38


Not My Type of King Part 1 – The Upside-Down Kingdom

Everyone knows that when the Promised King comes to Israel, he will conquer the Romans and make Israel great again. Peter is thinking of this type of king when he calls Jesus the Messiah, but just like the blind man, Peter’s vision of the Messiah is imperfect. Jesus’ kingdom is an upside-down kingdom, where King Jesus serves by giving up his life for his people. Since this is what the king does, his people must do the same.
