Matthew 16

NLT 1 One day the Pharisees and Sadducees came to test Jesus' claims by asking him to show them a miraculous sign from heaven. NIV 1 The Pharisees and Sadducees came to Jesus and tested him by asking him to show them a sign from heaven. NLT 2 He replied, "You know the saying, 'Red sky at night means fair weather tomorrow, NIV 2 He replied, "When evening comes, you say, 'It will be fair weather, for the sky is red,' NLT 3 red sky in the morning means foul weather all day.' You are good at reading the weather signs in the sky, but you can't read the obvious signs of the times! NIV 3 and in the morning, 'Today it will be stormy, for the sky is red and overcast.' You know how to interpret the appearance of the sky, but you cannot interpret the signs of the times. NLT 4 Only an evil, faithless generation would ask for a miraculous sign, but the only sign I will give them is the sign of the prophet Jonah." Then Jesus left them and went away. NIV 4 A wicked and adulterous generation looks for a miraculous sign, but none will be given it except the sign of Jonah." Jesus then left them and went away. NLT 5 Later, after they crossed to the other side of the lake, the disciples discovered they had forgotten to bring any food. NIV 5 When they went across the lake, the disciples forgot to take bread. NLT 6 "Watch out!" Jesus warned them. "Beware of the yeast of the Pharisees and Sadducees." NIV 6 "Be careful," Jesus said to them. "Be on your guard against the yeast of the Pharisees and Sadducees." NLT 7 They decided he was saying this because they hadn't brought any bread. NIV 7 They discussed this among themselves and said, "It is because we didn't bring any bread." NLT 8 Jesus knew what they were thinking, so he said, "You have so little faith! Why are you worried about having no food? NIV 8 Aware of their discussion, Jesus asked, "You of little faith, why are you talking among yourselves about having no bread? NLT 9 Won't you ever understand? Don't you remember the five thousand I fed with five loaves, and the baskets of food that were left over? NIV 9 Do you still not understand? Don't you remember the five loaves for the five thousand, and how many basketfuls you gathered? NLT 10 Don't you remember the four thousand I fed with seven loaves, with baskets of food left over? NIV 10 Or the seven loaves for the four thousand, and how many basketfuls you gathered? NLT 11 How could you even think I was talking about food? So again I say, 'Beware of the yeast of the Pharisees and Sadducees.'" NIV 11 How is it you don't understand that I was not talking to you about bread? But be on your guard against the yeast of the Pharisees and Sadducees." NLT 12 Then at last they understood that he wasn't speaking about yeast or bread but about the false teaching of the Pharisees and Sadducees. NIV 12 Then they understood that he was not telling them to guard against the yeast used in bread, but against the teaching of the Pharisees and Sadducees. NLT 13 When Jesus came to the region of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, "Who do people say that the Son of Man is?" NIV 13 When Jesus came to the region of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, "Who do people say the Son of Man is?" NLT 14 "Well," they replied, "some say John the Baptist, some say Elijah, and others say Jeremiah or one of the other prophets." NIV 14 They replied, "Some say John the Baptist; others say Elijah; and still others, Jeremiah or one of the prophets." NLT 15 Then he asked them, "Who do you say I am?" NIV 15 "But what about you?" he asked. "Who do you say I am?" NLT 16 Simon Peter answered, "You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God." NIV 16 Simon Peter answered, "You are the Christ, the Son of the living God." NLT 17 Jesus replied, "You are blessed, Simon son of John, because my Father in heaven has revealed this to you. You did not learn this from any human being. NIV 17 Jesus replied, "Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah, for this was not revealed to you by man, but by my Father in heaven. NLT 18 Now I say to you that you are Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church, and all the powers of hell will not conquer it. NIV 18 And I tell you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it. NLT 19 And I will give you the keys of the Kingdom of Heaven. Whatever you lock on earth will be locked in heaven, and whatever you open on earth will be opened in heaven." NIV 19 I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven." NLT 20 Then he sternly warned them not to tell anyone that he was the Messiah. NIV 20 Then he warned his disciples not to tell anyone that he was the Christ. NLT 21 From then on Jesus began to tell his disciples plainly that he had to go to Jerusalem, and he told them what would happen to him there. He would suffer at the hands of the leaders and the leading priests and the teachers of religious law. He would be killed, and he would be raised on the third day. NIV 21 From that time on Jesus began to explain to his disciples that he must go to Jerusalem and suffer many things at the hands of the elders, chief priests and teachers of the law, and that he must be killed and on the third day be raised to life. NLT 22 But Peter took him aside and corrected him. "Heaven forbid, Lord," he said. "This will never happen to you!" NIV 22 Peter took him aside and began to rebuke him. "Never, Lord!" he said. "This shall never happen to you!" NLT 23 Jesus turned to Peter and said, "Get away from me, Satan! You are a dangerous trap to me. You are seeing things merely from a human point of view, and not from God's." NIV 23 Jesus turned and said to Peter, "Get behind me, Satan! You are a stumbling block to me; you do not have in mind the things of God, but the things of men." NLT 24 Then Jesus said to the disciples, "If any of you wants to be my follower, you must put aside your selfish ambition, shoulder your cross, and follow me. NIV 24 Then Jesus said to his disciples, "If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. NLT 25 If you try to keep your life for yourself, you will lose it. But if you give up your life for me, you will find true life. NIV 25 For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for me will find it. NLT 26 And how do you benefit if you gain the whole world but lose your own soul in the process? Is anything worth more than your soul? NIV 26 What good will it be for a man if he gains the whole world, yet forfeits his soul? Or what can a man give in exchange for his soul? NLT 27 For I, the Son of Man, will come in the glory of my Father with his angels and will judge all people according to their deeds. NIV 27 For the Son of Man is going to come in his Father's glory with his angels, and then he will reward each person according to what he has done. NLT 28 And I assure you that some of you standing here right now will not die before you see me, the Son of Man, coming in my Kingdom." NIV 28 I tell you the truth, some who are standing here will not taste death before they see the Son of Man coming in his kingdom."
