Mark 8:21

Do ye not yet understand? (oupw suniete;). After all this rebuke and explanation. The greatest of all teachers had the greatest of all classes, but he struck a snag here. Matthew 16:12 gives the result: "Then they understood how that he bade them not beware of the loaves of bread, but of the teaching of the Pharisees and Sadducees." They had once said that they understood the parables of Jesus ( Matthew 13:51 ). But that was a long time ago. The teacher must have patience if his pupils are to understand.
