Up until this point in the book, we’d been hearing about who this Jesus was. But now, Jesus shows us what it looks like to follow him. And he tells his disciples that if they want to follow a crucified Messiah, they need to take up their own cross, and if they want to find their life they need to lose it for his sake. It isn’t an easy teaching, but this is at the heart of following Jesus, and finding life in his name.
