Do You See a Pattern Here?

Do you see the pattern here?  In spite of the fact that Peter has offered a marvelous confession of Jesus as the Christ of  God and his repeated reference to his crucifixion, they are theologians of glory.  They do not expect danger, suffering, and peril ahead, but the inauguration of the King of the Jews, in regal splendor.  In his second coming, Jesus will come in glory and power, judgment and wrath, but now he comes in weakness, suffering, humiliation and a sin-bearing death.
