OK did anyone else think Tangled when they saw that title. Alright it’s just me.
One of the super exciting things in this reading is that amongst the people continuing to desire Jesus’ miracles and the disciple being clueless and the Pharisees just getting angrier … Peter sees the light! He doesn’t understand everything, but he affirms Jesus, saying that he is the Christ (aka Messiah, aka Son of God, aka the one they’ve been waiting for). I think it’s pretty cool that the disciples are starting to see some glimmers and understand. Clearly they don’t get everything, but they are starting to, which is exciting, because by the end they will understand. 🙂
