with a feeding miracle, 8:1-9, followed by a demand for a sign from the Pharisees, 8:10-13, and the break with Jesus’ opponents.

The turning to the disciples, from 8:27 on, is more detailed this time and culminates in Peter’s confession of the Messiah. Mark underlines the importance of what follows by inserting a healing of the blind (the same happens before the entry into Jerusalem 10:46-52).
