How Peter Was Just Like Joel Osteen in Mark 8

Echoing Satan’s temptation to get Jesus to go around the cross instead of through it to glory – in other words, the opportunity to have his best life now – Peter was unwittingly trying to distract Jesus from his mission  Jesus went on to indicate to his disciples that this journey is a cross story, not a glory story, and anyone who wants to follow him must get that story right (Mark 8:33-38).
