“Jesus teaches his disciples”

The Gospel of today comes after the transfiguration of Jesus, witnessed by Peter, James and John (Mk 9:2-8). Jesus is now travelling through Galilee, but Mark tells us that he does not want people to know because he is instructing his disciples. He will tell them again about his coming suffering, death and resurrection which they miss completely once again, and he will have to take time to instruct them what it means to be first in the Kingdom of God and how they should welcome him, the messenger of the Kingdom.
