Once when Jesus was praying by himself, the disciples joined him, and he asked them, "Who do the crowds say that I am?"
They answered, "John the Baptist, others Elijah, and still others that one of the ancient prophets has come back to life."
He asked them, "And what about you? Who do you say that I am?" Peter answered, "The Christ sent from God."
Jesus gave them strict orders not to tell this to anyone.
He said, "The Human One must suffer many things and be rejected—by the elders, chief priests, and the legal experts—and be killed and be raised on the third day."
