"The Sandwich" is a literary device used by Mark to teach and challenge his readers of the inseperatable relationship between mission and martydom. The connection between following Jesus and the death of John the Baptist. We need to consider the contrast between Herod and John the Baptist. One who liked to merely hear the Word, but lacked obedience to it and the one who obeyed wholeheartedly, even to death. The challenge then is where is the Lord Jesus sending us and will we follow by faith or will we be controlled by our fears?
