Unveiling Christ's Suffering, Death and Resurrection

Mark 8: 31 And He began to teach them that the Son of Man must suffer many things and be rejected by the elders and the chief priests and the scribes and be killed and after three days rise. Matt 17:22 And while they were gathering together in Galilee, Jesus said to them, The Son of Man is about to be delivered into the hands of men, 23 And they will kill Him, and on the third day He will be raised.

After Peter made the declaration that Jesus is the Christ, "He began to teach them that the Son of Man must suffer many things, and be rejected by the elders and the chief priests and the scribes, and be killed, and after three days rise" (v. 31). Here we see that after the revelation of the mystery concerning Christ, we have the revelation of the crucifixion and resurrection of Christ. In order for Him to fulfill God's purpose, Christ had to go to the religious center, pass through crucifixion, and enter into resurrection. In verse 31 the Lord opened up some of the mysteries of God's economy concerning Himself as the Christ, the anointed One of God. In this verse the Lord refers to Himself as the Son of Man. After Peter saw the vision concerning Jesus the Nazarene being the Christ, the Lord went on to unveil the fact that He, God's anointed One, is the Son of Man. It is a great matter to see that the Messiah is the Son of Man. In verse 31 the Lord went on to reveal that the Messiah, who is the Son of Man, must suffer and be rejected. Instead of being honored, respected, and exalted, He would be dishonored, despised, and rejected. The Lord said that He would suffer many things, be rejected by the elders, the chief priests, and the scribes, and even be killed. (c) Living Stream Ministry.
