22Right then, Jesus made the disciples get into the boat and go ahead to the other side of the lake while he dismissed the crowds.23When he sent them away, he went up onto a mountain by himself to pray. Evening came and he was alone.24Meanwhile, the boat, fighting a strong headwind, was being battered by the waves and was already far away from land.25Very early in the morning he came to his disciples, walking on the lake.26When the disciples saw him walking on the lake, they were terrified and said, "It's a ghost!" They were so frightened they screamed.27Just then Jesus spoke to them, "Be encouraged! It's me. Don't be afraid."28Peter replied, "Lord, if it's you, order me to come to you on the water."29And Jesus said, "Come." Then Peter got out of the boat and was walking on the water toward Jesus.30But when Peter saw the strong wind, he became frightened. As he began to sink, he shouted, "Lord, rescue me!"
13Now when Jesus came to the area of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, "Who do people say the Human One is?"14They replied, "Some say John the Baptist, others Elijah, and still others Jeremiah or one of the other prophets."15He said, "And what about you? Who do you say that I am?"16Simon Peter said, "You are the Christ, the Son of the living God."17Then Jesus replied, "Happy are you, Simon son of Jonah, because no human has shown this to you. Rather my Father who is in heaven has shown you.18 I tell you that you are Peter. And I'll build my church on this rock. The gates of the underworld won't be able to stand against it.
