Bible Marginalia- You are the Christ

Bible Marginalia Series- #65

The previous post told about
 my visit to Caesarea Philippi.
It is certainly powerful to journal
 the verses after visiting the site of the story.
This section of Mark has the story when 
Peter confesses Jesus as the Christ.

It goes right into when Jesus again
 teaches His disciples
 about His death and resurrection.
And a strong rebuke to Peter-
when Peter questions Jesus.
"Get behind me, Satan. 
For you are not setting 
your mind on the things of God,
 but on the things of man."

Oh, Peter.
You do so well one minute, 
and then the next breath- you blow it.
Certainly, a picture of my daily life.

Then Jesus extends the teaching time
 to the crowd around-
followers must deny themselves, 
take up the cross,
 and follow.

"For what does it profit a man 
to gain the whole world and forfeit his soul?
For what can a man give in return for his soul?"
The backdrop of the pagan worship center of Banias
 adds a whole new light to this question.

For this Bible journaling I wanted to include
 some of the notes from the previous post.
The history and setting of where
 these conversations takes places
 is an important part of the story.
(One I did not realize till visiting here.)

I used cardstock cut outs
to highlight some of the main conversation.
A cardstock piece added in with washi tape flips 
to include information on front and back.
An old book page margin 
painted with acrylic paint frames the 
add-in page.
Black Sharpie  non-bleeding marker for added tangles.
