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?”
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.”
About The New King James Version
The New King James Version is a total update of the 1611 King James Version, also known as the "Authorized Version." Every attempt has been made to maintain the beauty of the original version while updating the English grammar to contemporary style and usage. The result is much better "readability." It is noteworthy that the NKJV is one of the few modern translations still based on the "Western" or "Byzantine" manuscript tradition. This makes the New King James Version an invaluable aid to comparative English Bible study.
