Bible: Mark 8:27-33

Peter’s Confession

8:27 Then Jesus and his disciples went to the villages of Caesarea Philippi. 1  On the way he asked his disciples, 2 Who do people say that I am? 8:28 They said, 3 John the Baptist, others say Elijah, 4  and still others, one of the prophets.” 8:29 He asked them, “But who do you say that I am?” Peter answered him, 5 You are the Christ.” 6  8:30 Then 7  he warned them not to tell anyone about him. 8 

First Prediction of Jesus’ Death and Resurrection

8:31 Then 9  Jesus 10  began to teach them that the Son of Man must suffer 11  many things and be rejected by the elders, chief priests, and experts in the law, 12  and be killed, and after three days rise again. 8:32 He spoke openly about this. So 13  Peter took him aside and began to rebuke him. 8:33 But after turning and looking at his disciples, he rebuked Peter and said, “Get behind me, Satan. You are not setting your mind on God’s interests, but on man’s.” 14
