And He began to teach them that the Son of Man must suffer many things, and be rejected by the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and after three days rise again. He spoke this word openly. Then Peter took Him aside and began to rebuke Him.
– Mark 8:31-32
I’ve always found this to be comical. “Peter took Him aside and began to rebuke Him.” In Matthew’s account it is recorded that Peter said, “Far be it from You, Lord; this shall not happen to You!” How bold and audacious we can sometimes be in our communication with the Lord. We would do well to be reminded that He is our Lord and Master.
