Was not life in its ultimate reality a carrying out of the will of God, however that divine was to be spelled out for him and for his followers? Defining Jesus as Messiah The notion of Messiah begins Mark's gospel, and then faithfully follows Jesus until its ending. How do we spell that out? In the first eight chapters of the gospel, Mark slowly, inexorably, even enthusiastically builds up an experience of Jesus which ends with Peter's correct insight: "You are the Messiah" (Mark 8, 29): "you have filled every criterion we have for identifying the promised Messiah".

He died out of religious obedience. Will the reader learn from that obedience to be likewise a child of God in obedience, even if the Father asks him to accept suffering? In other words, the Christian by baptism is a child of God. What then should be the attitude of the Christian to the Father's will? Jesus becomes the model of a Christian's life, even to accepting humiliation and death for fidelity to God and His teaching, if the Father calls for it. Like Jesus, the Christian is called upon to be nothing less than an obedient child of God.

Between Peter's act of faith that Jesus is Messiah (8, 29) and Jesus' departure for Jerusalem, Mark presents the conundrum extraordinaire. Jesus uses the figure of the son of man, who by definition must first suffer, only then to be glorified. Using the figure of the son of man Jesus addresses the events at the end of his life. These events will throw into great doubt the assured conviction that Jesus is Messiah. Yes, he has shown he has the characteristics of Messiah, but how can such power, wisdom and holiness be reduced to the impotence, foolishness and criminality of a person crucified?
