Preacher: Rev. Anne J. Scalfaro
Scripture: Mark 8:27-9:8 (NRSV)
Title: Who Do You Say That I Am?
As Jesus pivots from his Galilean ministry to his days in Jerusalem where he will suffer and die, he seems to be provoking his disciples to think deeply about who he is and in turn, to think deeply about their own identities and callings as his followers.
At the beginning of this passage, Jesus flat-out asks his disciples, “Who Do You Say that I Am?” It’s a good question. Who is Jesus? Once we answer that question, it seems that the question that logically follows is: who am I in light of who Jesus is?
Sunday’s sermon will explore the complexity of Jesus’ identity and in turn our own identities. The capstone story of this passage, the Transfiguration, may hold a key truth: that knowing who we are begins and ends with knowing whose we are.
