Mark 8:30

8:30 tell no one. See notes 1:34; 5:19; cf. 9:9. Strangely, at this high point of revelation comes the order to keep it secret. But with hindsight the reason is clear. Jesus will not allow political notions of messiahship to compromise His true calling to be the suffering Messiah whose essentially moral and spiritual work of redemption will be total.
