Jesus knew that if His message was going to live on past His death, His closed-minded, ears-not-hearing, hard-hearted, eyes-not-seeing, obtuse-spirited disciples needed a "Grand Opening" to take place within them.
So Jesus took them on a long journey north - before His final approach south toward Jerusalem - and the climax of His redemptive mission.
Next stop: finding faith at the foot of a mountain.
[The Gospel of Mark | s07e06 | Mark 8:27-30]
