John the Baptist, the New Elijah

Mark 9:9-13

He said to them, “Elijah is indeed coming first to restore all things. How then is it written about the Son of Man, that he is to go through many sufferings and be treated with contempt?” Mark 9:12 NRSV

The weight of God’s call is heavy because of what it brings with it. However, the reward is mightier than the test.
