Do You Not Yet Understand? (Mark 8:1-21)

Mark 8:1-21 opens with an almost identical scenario from what we’ve saw in chapter six, the feeding of God’s people. But what is even more strange is the disciple’s amnesia. As the people starve, the disciples forget completely what Jesus had done for the people before. Or is it really forgetting? In the three accounts this week we will see again the problem with the human heart. We are a doubting, disobedient people. And so Mark is not just an uncovering of Jesus. It is an uncovering of us. And it is hard to overestimate how this affects us, even as believers.
