Mark 8:27–38

Peter’s Confession of Christ

Matt. 16:13–23; Luke 9:18–22

27 sNow Jesus and His disciples went out to the towns of Caesarea Philippi; and on the road He asked His disciples, saying to them, Who do men say that I am?”

28 So they answered, t“John the Baptist; but some say, uElijah; and others, one of the prophets.”

29 He said to them, But who do you say that I am?”

Peter answered and said to Him, v“You are the Christ.”

30 wThen He strictly warned them that they should tell no one about Him.

31 And xHe began to teach them that the Son of Man must suffer many things, and be yrejected by the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be zkilled, and after three days rise again. 32 He spoke this word openly. Then Peter took Him aside and began to rebuke Him. 33 But when He had turned around and looked at His disciples, He arebuked Peter, saying, Get behind Me, Satan! For you are not 5mindful of the things of God, but the things of men.”

Cost of Discipleship

Matt. 16:24–27; Luke 9:22–26

34 When He had called the people to Himself, with His disciples also, He said to them, bWhoever desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me. 35 For cwhoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake and the gospel’s will save it. 36 For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? 37 Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul? 38 dFor whoever eis ashamed of Me and My words in this adulterous and sinful generation, of him the Son of Man also will be ashamed when He comes in the glory of His Father with the holy angels.”
