Now when Jesus came into the district of Caesarea Philippi, He was asking His disciples, Who do people say that the Son of Man is? 14
And they said, Some say
John the Baptist; and others, Elijah; but still others, Jeremiah, or one of the prophets. 15
He said to them, But who do you say that I am? 16
Simon Peter answered, You are the Christ, the Son of the living God. 17
And Jesus said to him, Blessed are you, Simon Barjona, because flesh and blood did not reveal this
to you, but My Father who is in heaven. 18
I also say to you that you are Peter, and upon this rock I will build My church; and the gates of Hades will not overpower it. 19
I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; and whatever you bind on earth shall have been bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall have been loosed in heaven. 20
Then He warned the disciples that they should tell no one that He was the Christ.
Jesus went out, along with His disciples, to the villages of Caesarea Philippi; and on the way He questioned His disciples, saying to them, Who do people say that I am? 28
They 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? Peter answered and said to Him, You are the Christ. 30
And He warned them to tell no one about Him.
And it happened that while He was praying alone, the disciples were with Him, and He questioned them, saying, Who do the people say that I am? 19
They answered and said, John the Baptist, and others say
Elijah; but others, that one of the prophets of old has risen again. 20
And He said to them, But who do you say that I am? And Peter answered and said, The Christ of God. 21
But He warned them and instructed them
not to tell this to anyone,
