Gerry Breshears :: In the Gospel of Mark, why does Jesus tell people not to reveal His identity?

  • “Why would he want to keep the fact of his being the Messiah a secret?” asks Dr. Gerry Breshears, Professor of Theology at Western Seminary and Co-author with Mark Driscoll of several popular books on doctrine and the church. The idea of a Messiah in Christ’s day had many connotations involving kingship, military leadership, and similar concepts. Christ kept quiet so he could redefine the idea of Messiah. “He’s trying to manage the ‘buzz.’”
