Fall Sermon Series 2: The Upside Down Kingdom Shocking reversals lead to true discipleship, the Gospel of Mark tells us. The tenth chapter of Mark is a critical transition between the transfiguration of Jesus and the triumphal entry into Jerusalem. After Peter named Jesus as the Christ, the Son of the living God, at the transfiguration, Jesus elaborated on what following Him would require. This ensuring journey toward Jerusalem contains a collection of teachings about the nature of true discipleship. It is based on a life contrary to the perspectives and priorities of the world and is more in line with the kingdom of God. In a sense, the values of the kingdom seek to turn the world upside down. Each of these texts reveals a different way that God inverts the culture at large and requires us to live a life “upside down.”
