In reality, the view of world they had lived in began to change. They had lived in a world of false teaching and deception. That world was controlled by an “adulterous and sinful generation” (Mar.8:38). They are witnessing the coming of the Kingdom of God in the coming of the Jesus, the Messiah. The disciples had misunderstood the person of the messiah and a proper understanding of the Kingdom (Rule) of God; they had misunderstood the cost of their calling to be disciples of Christ; and they had especially missed the mission and method of the Messiah’s coming. In this text today, Jesus will clarify the two main persons in God’s eschatological plan: John the Baptist and Himself.
