2 He answered them: “When evening comes you say, ‘It will be good weather because the sky is red.’ 3 And in the morning, ‘Today will be stormy because the sky is red and threatening.’ You y know how to read the appearance of the sky, but you can’t read the signs of the times. z 4 An evil and adulterous generation demands a sign, but no sign will be given to it except the sign of a Jonah.” b Then He left them and went away.
5 The disciples reached the other shore, c and they had forgotten to take bread.
8 Aware of this, Jesus said, “You of little faith! f Why are you discussing among yourselves that you do not have bread? 9 Don’t you understand yet? Don’t you remember the five loaves for the 5,000 and how many baskets you collected? 10 Or the seven loaves for the 4,000 and how many large baskets you collected? g 11 Why is it you don’t understand that when I told you, ‘Beware of the yeast of the Pharisees and Sadducees,’ it wasn’t about bread?” h 12 Then they understood that He did not tell them to beware of the yeast in bread, but of the teaching of the Pharisees and Sadducees. i
14 And they said, “Some say John the Baptist; others, Elijah; still others, Jeremiah or one of the prophets.” m
17 And Jesus responded, “Simon son of Jonah, o p you are blessed because flesh and blood did not reveal this to you, but My Father in heaven. q 18 And I also say to you that you are Peter, r and on this rock s I will build My church, t and the forces u of * Hades will not overpower it. 19 I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, v and whatever you bind on earth is already bound w in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth is already loosed x in heaven.”
21 From a then on Jesus began to point out to His disciples that He must go to Jerusalem and suffer many things from the elders, * chief priests, and * scribes, be killed, and be raised the third day. b 22 Then Peter took Him aside and began to rebuke Him, “Oh no, c Lord! This will never happen to You!”
24 Then Jesus said to His disciples, “If anyone wants to come with Me, he must deny himself, take up his cross, and follow Me. f 25 For whoever wants to save his * life will lose it, but whoever loses his life because of Me will find it. g 26 What will it benefit a man if he gains the whole world yet loses his life? Or what will a man give in exchange for his life? h 27 For the Son of Man is going to come with His angels in the glory of His Father, i and then He will reward each according to what he has done. 28 * I assure you: There are some standing here who will not taste death until they see the Son of Man coming in His kingdom.” j
