And they answered, 2"John the Baptist. But others say, 3Elijah, and others, that one of the prophets of old has risen."
Then he said to them, "But who do you say that I am?" And Peter answered, 4"The Christ of God."
5And he strictly charged and commanded them to tell this to no one,
6saying, 7"The Son of Man must 8suffer many things and 9be rejected by the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and on 10the third day be raised."
And he said to all, "If anyone would come after me, let him 11deny himself and 12take up his cross 13daily and follow me.
For 14whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will save it.
