Bible: Matthew 16:20-23

16:20 Then he instructed his disciples not to tell anyone that he was the Christ. 1 

First Prediction of Jesus’ Death and Resurrection

16:21 From that time on 2  Jesus began to show his disciples that he must go to Jerusalem 3  and suffer 4  many things at the hands of the elders, chief priests, and experts in the law, 5  and be killed, and on the third day be raised. 16:22 So Peter took him aside and began to rebuke him: 6  “God forbid, 7  Lord! This must not happen to you! 16:23 But he turned and said to Peter, “Get behind me, Satan! You are a stumbling block to me, because you are not setting your mind on God’s interests, but on man’s.” 8
