The Pharisees require a sign.
Matthew 16:1 The Pharisees also, with the Saducees, came, and temptyng, desired hym that he woulde shewe them a signe from heauen. Matthew 16:2 He aunswered & sayde vnto them: when it is euenyng, ye say, [it wyll be] fayre weather: for the sky is redde. Matthew 16:3 And in the mornyng, It wyll be foule weather to day: for the sky is lowryng redde. O ye hypocrites, ye can discerne the outwarde appearaunce of the sky: but can ye not discerne the signes of the tymes? Matthew 16:4 The froward and adulterous nation requireth a signe: and there shall no signe be geuen vnto it, but the signe of the prophete Ionas. And he left them, and departed. Matthew 16:5 And when his disciples were come to the other syde of the water, they had forgotten to take bread [with them].
Jesus warneth his disciples of the leaven of the Pharisees and Sadducees.
Matthew 16:6 Then Iesus sayde vnto them: Take heede and beware of the leuen of the Pharisees, and of the Saducees. Matthew 16:7 And they thought in them selues, saying: for we haue taken no bread [with vs]. Matthew 16:8 Which when Iesus vnderstoode, he sayde vnto them: O ye of little fayth, why thynke you within your selues, because ye haue brought no bread? Matthew 16:9 Do ye not yet perceaue, neither remember those fyue loaues, when there were fyue thousande [men], and howe many baskets toke ye vp? Matthew 16:10 Neither the seuen loaues, when there were foure thousande [men], and howe many baskets toke ye vp? Matthew 16:11 Howe is it that ye do not vnderstande, that I spake it not vnto you concernyng bread, [warnyng you] that ye shoulde beware of the leuen of the Pharisees, and of the Saducees? Matthew 16:12 Then vnderstoode they, howe that he bad not them beware of the leuen of bread: but of the doctrine of the Pharisees, and of the Saducees.
The people's opinion of Christ,
Matthew 16:13 When Iesus came into the coastes of Cesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, saying: Whom do men say that I the sonne of man am? Matthew 16:14 They sayde: some say [that thou art] Iohn Baptist, some Helias, some Ieremias, or one of the prophetes. Matthew 16:15 He sayth vnto them: but whom say ye that I am?
and Peter's confession of him.
Matthew 16:16 Simon Peter aunswered and sayde: Thou art Christe, the sonne of the lyuyng God. Matthew 16:17 And Iesus aunswered, and sayde vnto hym: happy art thou Simon Bar Iona, for flesh & blood hath not opened [that] vnto thee, but my father which is in heauen. Matthew 16:18 And I say also vnto thee, that thou art Peter, and vpon this rocke I wyll buylde my congregation: And the gates of hell shall not preuayle agaynst it. Matthew 16:19 And I wyll geue vnto thee, the keyes of the kingdome of heauen: And whatsoeuer thou byndest in earth, shalbe bounde in heauen: and whatsoeuer thou loosest in earth, shalbe loosed in heauen. Matthew 16:20 Then charged he his disciples, that they shoulde tell no man, that he was Iesus Christe.
Jesus foresheweth his death,
Matthew 16:21 From that tyme foorth, began Iesus to shewe vnto his disciples, howe that he must go vnto Hierusalem, and suffer many thynges of the elders, and hye priestes, & scribes, and [must] be kylled, and be raysed agayne the thyrde day. Matthew 16:22 And when Peter had taken him aside, he began to rebuke hym, saying: Lorde, fauour thy selfe, this shall not be vnto thee.
reproving Peter for dissuading him from it:
Matthew 16:23 But he turned hym about, and sayde vnto Peter: go after me Satan, thou art an offence vnto me: for thou sauerest not the thynges that be of God, but those that be of men.
and admonisheth those that will follow him, to bear the cross.
Matthew 16:24 Then sayde Iesus vnto his disciples: If any man wyll folowe me, let hym forsake him selfe, and take vp his crosse, and folowe me. Matthew 16:25 For, who so wyll saue his lyfe, shall lose it: Agayne, who so doth lose his lyfe for my sake, shall fynde it. Matthew 16:26 For what doth it profite a man, yf he wynne all the whole worlde, and lose his owne soule? Or what shall a man geue for a raunsome of his soule? Matthew 16:27 For the sonne of man shall come in the glory of his father, with his Angels: and then shall he rewarde euery man accordyng to his workes. Matthew 16:28 Ueryly I say vnto you, there be some standyng here, which shall not taste of death, tyll they see the sonne of man come in his kyngdome.
