02/28/2021 – Upon This Rock – Part Four – Tents and Swords

Mark 9:2-8; John 18:1-11. If you grew up in the church, you likely have heard Peter described as the disciple who is loud and brash and regularly sticks his foot in his mouth. He’s an act-first, think-later, kind of person. Our two texts today — the mount of transfiguration where Peter offers to build 3 tents, and the garden of Gethsemane where Peter cuts off the ear of the High Priest’s servant —these two stories are classic examples of this. But in these two stories, Jesus is revealing to Peter, perhaps more clearly than in any other story, just exactly who he is.
