Seeing Jesus as the Christ, the Son of God, who came to complete His mission as the suffering servant going to the Cross, does not simply tell us something about Jesus; it is also meant to tell us something about ourselves as His disciples. Mark’s Gospel account, which could be thought of as the church’s first discipleship manual, underscores that following Jesus flows directly out of correctly seeing Jesus for who He is, as well as correctly seeing the manner in which Jesus lived and died in fulfillment of His mission. As a method for our discipleship, Mark shows us that Jesus is the only One who is worthy to be followed (1:1-8:21) but also that Jesus Himself charted the only worthy way that He is to be followed (8:22-16:8).
