Mark 8:27-38

Peter's Confession of Christ

27 1Jesus went out, along with His disciples, to the villages of 2Caesarea Philippi; and on the way He questioned His disciples, saying to them, "Who do people say that I am?"
28 3They told Him, saying, "John the Baptist; and others say Elijah; but others, one of the prophets."
29 And He continued by questioning them, "But who do you say that I am?" 4Peter answered and said to Him, "You are the Christ."
30 And 5He warned them to tell no one about Him.
31 6And He began to teach them that 7the Son of Man must suffer many things and be rejected by the elders and the chief priests and the scribes, and be killed, and after three days rise again.
32 And He was stating the matter 8plainly. And Peter took Him aside and began to rebuke Him.
33 But turning around and seeing His disciples, He rebuked Peter and said, "Get behind Me, 9Satan; for you are not setting your mind on God's interests, but man's."
34 And He summoned the crowd with His disciples, and said to them, "If anyone wishes to come after Me, he must deny himself, and 10take up his cross and follow Me.
35 "For 11whoever * wishes to save his life will lose it, but whoever * loses his life for My sake and the gospel's will save it.
36 "For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world, and forfeit his soul?
37 "For what will a man give in exchange for his soul?
38 "For 12whoever * is ashamed of Me and My words in this adulterous and sinful generation, 13the Son of Man will also be ashamed of him when He 14comes in the glory of His Father with the holy angels."
