"If any want to become my followers, let them deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me." Mark 8:35

2) What were the expectations of the Messiah in the minds of the disciples and Peter? What did Jesus reveal about the nature of his Messiahship?
3) How do we interpret and apply Jesus’ command to “take up your cross” to your life?
