The Pharisees require a sign.
Matthew 16:1 Then came the Phariseis and Saduceis, and dyd tempte hym, desiring hym to shew them some signe from heauen. Matthew 16:2 He aunswered and saide vnto them. At euen ye saye, we shall haue fayre wedder, and that because the skye is reed: Matthew 16:3 and in the mornynge ye saye: to daye shalbe foule wedder, & that because the skie is cloudy and redde. O ye hypocrites ye can discerne the fashion of the skie and can ye not discerne the signes of the times Matthew 16:4 The froward nacion and aduouterous seketh a signe: and there shal no nother signe be geuen vnto them, but the signe of the prophet Ionas So lefte he them, and departed. Matthew 16:5 And when his disciples were come to the otherside of the water, they had forgotten too take bread with them.
Jesus warneth his disciples of the leaven of the Pharisees and Sadducees.
Matthew 16:6 Then Iesus sayd vnto them: Take hede and beware of the leuen of the Phariseis and of the Saduces. Matthew 16:7 And thei thoughte in theim selues sayinge: because we haue brought no breade wyth vs. Matthew 16:8 When Iesus vnderstode that, he sayd vnto them? O ye of litle fayth, why are your myndes cumbred because ye haue brought no bread? Matthew 16:9 Do ye not yet perceyue, neither remember those fyue loues when there were .v.M. men, & how many baskettes toke ye vp: Matthew 16:10 Neyther the seuen loues when there were .iiij. thousand, and how many baskettes toke ye vp? Matthew 16:11 Why perceyue ye not then, that I spake not vnto you of bread, when I sayde: beware of the leuen of the Pharises and of the Saduces. Matthew 16:12 Then vnderstode they, howe that he had not them beware of the leuen of breade: but of the doctrine of the Phariseis and of the Saduces.
The people's opinion of Christ,
Matthew 16:13 When Iesus came into the costes of þe citie whych is called Cesarea Philippi, he axed his disciples sayinge: whome do men saye that I the sonne of man am? Matthew 16:14 They sayde: some saye that thou arte Ihon Baptist, some Helyas, som Ieremias, or one of the Prophetes. Matthew 16:15 He sayde vnto them: but whome saye ye that I am?
and Peter's confession of him.
Matthew 16:16 Simon Peter aunswered and sayde: Thou arte Christ the sonne of the liuynge God. Matthew 16:17 And Iesus aunswered and sayde to hym: happy arte thou Symon the sonne of Ionas, for fleshe & bloude hath not opened vnto the that, but my father which is in heauen. Matthew 16:18 And I saye also vnto the that thou arte Peeter: and vpon thys rocke I wil buylde my congregacion. And the gates of hell shall not preuayle against it. Matthew 16:19 And I wil geue vnto þe, the keyes of the kyngdome of heauen, and whatsoeuer thou bindest vpon earth shalbe bounde in heauen, and whatsoeuer thon lowsest on earth shalbe lowsed in heauen. Matthew 16:20 Then he charged hys disciples, that they should tell no man, that he was Iesus Christ.
Jesus foresheweth his death,
Matthew 16:21 From that time forth Iesus beganne to shew vnto hys disciples, how that he must go vnto Ierusalem, and suffer many thinges of the elders, and of the hygh priestes, and of the scribes, and must be kylled: and ryse agayne the thyrde daye. Matthew 16:22 But Peter toke hym asyde, and beganne to rebuke hym saying: master fauer thy selfe: thys shall not come vnto the.
reproving Peter for dissuading him from it:
Matthew 16:23 Then tourned he about and sayd vnto Peeter: come after me Sathan, thou offendest me, because thou sauorest not godly thynges, but worldly thynges.
and admonisheth those that will follow him, to bear the cross.
Matthew 16:24 Iesus then sayde to hys disciples. If anye man will folow me, let hym forsake hym selfe, and take vp hys crosse and folowe me. Matthew 16:25 For whosoeuer will saue hys lyfe, shall loose it. And whosoeuer shall loose hys lyfe for my sake shall finde it. Matthew 16:26 What shall it proffet a man though he shoulde wynne al the whole world if he loose hys awne soule? Or els what shall a man geue to redeme his soule agayne withall? Matthew 16:27 For the sonne of man shall come in þe glorye of hys father, wyth hys aungels: & then shall he rewarde euery man accordyng to his dedes. Matthew 16:28 Verely I saye vnto you, some there be among them that here stande, whiche shall not taste of death, till they shall haue sene the sonne of man come in hys kyngdom.
