Jesus and his disciples left Galilee and went up to the villages of Caesarea Philippi. As they were walking along, he asked them, "Who do people say I am?"
"Well," they replied, "some say John the Baptist, some say Elijah, and others say you are one of the other prophets."
Then Jesus asked, "Who do you say I am?" Peter replied, "You are the Messiah."
But Jesus warned them not to tell anyone about him.
