- Jesus seems exasperated with the disciples, and I don't know if that fits under the rhetoric rabbis would traditionally use, or if I'm misinterpreting, or if they've done something more grevious than I can tell.

- Jesus failing at first with the blind man is interesting.

- Oh, the 'take up your cross' coming after Peter rebuking him over saying he'd die is... kind of ow and kind of illuminating? As in, 'don't expect to always be safe, God has defeated death and you need not fear it'.

- Jesus being ashamed rather than rejecting is possibly easier to bear (if still a deterrent), but I don't know if later verses will return to rejecting as a consequence.
