Bible: Matthew 16:20-25
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 16:24 Then Jesus said to his disciples, “If anyone wants to become my follower, 9 he must deny 10 himself, take up his cross, 11 and follow me. 16:25 For whoever wants to save his life 12 will lose it, 13 but whoever loses his life for my sake will find it.
