Bible: Matthew 16:21-25

First Prediction of Jesus’ Death and Resurrection

16:21 From that time on 1  Jesus began to show his disciples that he must go to Jerusalem 2  and suffer 3  many things at the hands of the elders, chief priests, and experts in the law, 4  and be killed, and on the third day be raised. 16:22 So Peter took him aside and began to rebuke him: 5  “God forbid, 6  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.” 7  16:24 Then Jesus said to his disciples, “If anyone wants to become my follower, 8  he must deny 9  himself, take up his cross, 10  and follow me. 16:25 For whoever wants to save his life 11  will lose it, 12  but whoever loses his life for my sake will find it.
