The Pharisees require a sign.
Matthew 16:1 And, the Pharisees and Sadducees coming near, putting him to the test, requested him, a sign out of the heaven, to shew unto them. Matthew 16:2 But, he, answering said unto them[When evening cometh ye say, Fair! for fiery is the heaven;] Matthew 16:3 [And at morn, Today, a storm! for fiery, and yet sad, is the heaven. The face of the heaven indeed, ye learn to distinguish,but, the signs of the times, ye cannot.] Matthew 16:4 A wicked and adulterous generation, a sign, doth seek after, and, a sign, will not be given it,save the sign of Jonah. And, leaving them behind, he departed. Matthew 16:5 And the disciples coming, to the other side, had forgotten to take loaves.
Jesus warneth his disciples of the leaven of the Pharisees and Sadducees.
Matthew 16:6 And, Jesus, said unto themMind! and beware, of the leaven of the Pharisees and Sadducees. Matthew 16:7 And, they, began to deliberate among themselves, sayingBecause, loaves, we took not. Matthew 16:8 And, observing it, Jesus saidWhy are ye deliberating among yourselves, ye little-of-faith! because, loaves, ye have not? Matthew 16:9 Not yet, perceive ye, neither remember,The five loaves of the five thousand, and how many baskets ye received? Matthew 16:10 Nor the seven loaves of the four thousand, and how many hampers ye received? Matthew 16:11 How is it ye perceive not, that, not concerning loaves, spake I unto you,but beware of the leaven, of the Pharisees and Sadducees? Matthew 16:12 Then, understood they that he did not bid them beware of [the] leaven [of loaves] but of, the teaching, of the Pharisees and Sadducees.
The people's opinion of Christ,
Matthew 16:13 And, Jesus coming into the parts of Caesarea of Philip, began questioning his disciples, sayingWho are men saying that, the Son of Man, is? Matthew 16:14 And, they, saidSome, indeed, John the Immerser, and, others, Elijah,but, others, Jeremiah, or one of the prophets. Matthew 16:15 He saith unto themBut who say, ye, that I am?
and Peter's confession of him.
Matthew 16:16 And, Simon Peter, answering, saidThou, art the Christ, the Son of the Living God. Matthew 16:17 And Jesus, answering, said to himHappy, art thou, Simon Bar-yona,because, flesh and blood, revealed it not unto thee, but my Father who is in the heavens. Matthew 16:18 And, I also, unto thee, sayThou, art Peter,and, upon this rock, will I build my assembly, and, the gates of hades, shall not prevail against it. Matthew 16:19 I will give thee, the keys of the kingdom of the heavens,and, whatsoever thou shalt bind upon the earth, shall be bound in the heavens, and, whatsoever thou shalt loose upon the earth, shall be loosed in the heavens. Matthew 16:20 Then, straitly charged he the disciples, lest, to any man, they should sayHe, is, the Christ.
Jesus foresheweth his death,
Matthew 16:21 From that time, began Jesus Christ to be pointing out to his disciples that he must needs, into Jerusalem, go away, and, many things, suffer, from the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be slain,and on, the third day, arise. Matthew 16:22 And, taking him aside, Peter began to rebuke him, sayingMercy on thee Lord! In nowise, shall, this, befall thee.
reproving Peter for dissuading him from it:
Matthew 16:23 But, he, turning, said to PeterWithdraw behind me, Satan! A snare, art thou of mine, because thou art not regarding the things of God, but the things of men.
and admonisheth those that will follow him, to bear the cross.
Matthew 16:24 Then, Jesus said unto his disciplesIf any one intendeth, after me, to come, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and be following me; Matthew 16:25 For, whosoever intendeth, his life, to save, shall lose it,but, whosoever shall lose his life, for my sake, shall find it. Matthew 16:26 For what shall a man be profited, though, the whole world, he gain, and, his life, he forfeit? Or what shall a man give, in exchange for his life? Matthew 16:27 For the Son of Man is destined to be coming, in the glory of his Father, with his messengers,and, then, will he give back unto each one, according to his practice. Matthew 16:28 Verily, I say unto youThere are some of those, here standing, who, indeed, shall in nowise taste of death, until they see the Son of Man, coming in his kingdom.
