16 Then the Pharisees and Sadducees came and tempted Him, desiring Him to show them a sign from Heaven.

But He answered, and said to them, “When it is evening, you say, ‘Fair weather, for the sky is red.’

And in the morning, ‘Storm today. For the sky is red and overcast.’ O, hypocrites! You can discern the face of the sky. And can you not discern the signs of the times?

“The wicked and adulterous generation seeks a sign. But there shall be no sign given it, except that sign of the Prophet Jonah.” So, He left them and departed.

And when His disciples had come to the other side, they had forgotten to take bread.

Then Jesus said to them, “Watch, and beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and Sadducees.”

And they reasoned among themselves, saying, “It is because we have brought no bread.”

But Jesus, knowing it, said to them, “O, you of little faith. Why are you thinking among yourselves, ‘because you have brought no bread’?”

Do you still not perceive or remember the five loaves - when there were five thousand - and how many baskets did you take up;

10 “or the seven loaves - when there were four thousand - and how many baskets did you take up?

11 “How do you not understand that what I said to you was not concerning bread, but that you should beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and Sadducees?”

12 Then they understood that He had not said that they should beware of the leaven of bread, but of the doctrine of the Pharisees and Sadducees.

13 Now when Jesus came into the region of Caesarea Philippi, He asked His disciples, saying, “Whom do men say that I, the Son of Man, am?”

14 And they said, “Some say John Baptist; and some, Elijah; and others, Jeremiah, or one of the Prophets.”

15 He said to them, “But, whom do you say that I am?”

16 Then Simon Peter answered, and said, “You are the Christ; the Son of the living God.”

17 And Jesus answered, and said to him, “Blessed are you, Simon, the son of Jonah. For flesh and blood has not revealed it 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 shall not overcome it.

19 “And I will give to you the keys of the Kingdom of Heaven. And whatever you shall bind upon Earth, shall be bound in Heaven. And whatever you shall loose on Earth, shall be loosed in Heaven.”

20 Then He charged His disciples that they should tell no one that He was Jesus, the Christ.

21 From that time forth, Jesus began to show to His disciples that He must go to Jerusalem and suffer many things from the elders and the chief priests, and scribes, and be slain, and be raised again the third day.

22 Then Peter took Him aside and began to rebuke Him, saying, “Far be it from You, Master! This shall not happen to You!”

23 Then He turned back and said to Peter, “Get behind me, Satan! You are a stumbling block to me because you do not understand the things of God, but the things of men!”

24 Then Jesus said to His disciples, “If anyone will follow Me, let him forsake himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me.

25 “For whoever would save his life, shall lose it. And whoever shall lose his life, for My sake, shall find it.

26 “For what shall it profit a man if he should win the whole world, yet he loses his own soul? Or what shall a man give for recompense of his soul?

27 “For the Son of Man shall come in the glory of his Father, with His angels. And then He shall give to everyone according to his deeds.

28 “Truly I say to you, some of those who stand here shall not taste death before they have seen the Son of Man come in His Kingdom.”
