  • 1 The Pharisees also with the Sadducees came, and testing Him asked that He would show them a sign from heaven.
  • 2 He answered and said to them, “When it is evening, you say, ‘It will be fair weather, because the sky is red’;
  • 3 and in the morning, ‘It will be foul weather today, because the sky is red and overcast.’ O you hypocrites! You can discern the face of the sky, but can you not discern the signs of the times?
  • 4 A wicked and adulterous generation seeks after a sign; and no sign will be given to it except the sign of the prophet Jonah.” And He left them, and departed.
  • 5 Now when His disciples had come to the other side, they had forgotten to take bread.
  • 6 Then Jesus said to them, “Take heed and beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees.”
  • 7 And they reasoned among themselves, saying, “It is because we have not taken bread.”
  • 8 Which when Jesus perceived it He said to them, “O you of little faith, why do you reason among yourselves because you have brought no bread?
  • 9 Do you still not understand, or remember the five loaves of the five thousand and how many baskets you took up?
  • 10 Nor the seven loaves of the four thousand and how many huge baskets you took up?
  • 11 How is it that you do not understand that I did not speak this to you concerning bread, but that you should beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and Sadducees?”
  • 12 Then they understood that He did not tell them to beware of the leaven of bread, but of the doctrine of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees.
  • 13 When Jesus came into the region of Caesarea Philippi, He asked His disciples, saying, “Who do men say that I the Son of Man, am?”
  • 14 So they said, “Some say that You are John the Baptist, some, Elijah, and others Jeremiah, or one of the prophets.”
  • 15 He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?”
  • 16 And Simon Peter answered and said, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.”
  • 17 And Jesus replied and said to him, “Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah, because flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but My Father who is in heaven.
  • 18 And I also say to you that you are Peter, and upon this rock I will build My church; and the gates of hell will not prevail against it.
  • 19 And I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you will bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you will loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.”
  • 20 Then He commanded His disciples that they should not tell anyone that He was Jesus the Christ.
  • 21 From that time forward Jesus began to show to His disciples how that He must go to Jerusalem, and suffer many things from the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised again the third day.
  • 22 Then Peter took Him aside, and began to rebuke Him, saying, “Let this be far from You Lord; this will not happen to You!”
  • 23 But He turned and said to Peter, “Get behind Me Satan! You are an offense to Me, because, you are not thinking things that are of God, but those that are of man.”
  • 24 Then said Jesus to His disciples, “If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me.
  • 25 Because, whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever desires to lose his life for My sake will find it.
  • 26 Because, what does a man profit if he gains the entire world, and loses his own soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul?
  • 27 Because, the Son of Man will come in the glory of His Father with His angels, and then He will reward everyone according to his works.
  • 28 Truly, I say to you, there are some standing here who will not taste death, until they see the Son of Man coming in His kingdom.
