It is possible to see without really seeing, or hear without really hearing. It is possible to behold a truth or an event or a person without fully grasping all that truth, event, and person really mean.
For more than two millennia, Christians have believed that the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus form the central event of cosmic and human history. Yet so often we have seen this without really seeing this. We’ve failed to grasp how all that Jesus is and has done makes sense of all that we are to do. We’ve failed to behold how beautifully the life of Jesus makes sense of our own lives.
The Gospel of Mark is for those who see but struggle to see. For blind people like us, it calls us and enables us to behold all that Jesus truly is and has done for us.
