Getting It  Click here Click title to view sermon Mark 9: 30–37
Summary: In Mark’s gospel, Jesus’ disciples never seem to grasp who he is or what he does or says. They’re puzzled by his actions and words. In today’s reading, they don’t understand when he speaks about his coming death and instead start arguing about which of them is most important. In spite of the benefit of hindsight, we’re often not much better. But our salvation is in the greatness of Jesus, not of ourselves.
