Mark 9:1 (NIV)
And he said to them, “I tell you the truth, some who are standing here will not taste death before they see the kingdom of God come with power.”
The Bible is a crazy story. I am not sure I would trust anyone who wasn’t willing to admit that.
But then I think history is a crazy story. Herodotus? Stalin? A kamikaze wind thwarting Genghis Khan? Give me a break!
I seems to me that Jesus (who is Truth) says some stuff that might have been a little confusing.
It also seems like he says stuff that is hard to hear.
This one seems confusing. Huh? Taste death? Kingdom of God?
But then when you think about what he is saying it is…oh! Of course!
He is the King. They are looking at the kingdom.
Look at the King.
Don’t miss the kingdom.
