The blessed

In the Gospels

Mark 8:27-33

Jesus went out, with his disciples, into the villages of Caesarea Philippi. On the way he asked his disciples, Who do men say that I am?

They told him, John the Baptist, and others say Elijah, but others: one of the prophets.

He said to them, But who do you say that I am?

Peter answered, You are the Christ.

He commanded them that they should tell no one about him. He began to teach them that the Son of Man must suffer many things, and be rejected by the elders, the chief priests, and the scribes, and be killed, and after three days rise again. He spoke to them openly. Peter took him, and began to rebuke him. But he, turning around, and seeing his disciples, rebuked Peter, and said, Get behind me, Satan! For you have in mind not the things of God, but the things of men.

Matthew 16:13-23

Now when Jesus came into the parts of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, saying, Who do men say that I, the Son of Man, am?

They said, Some say John the Baptist, some, Elijah, and others, Jeremiah, or one of the prophets.

He said to them, But who do you say that I am?

Simon Peter answered, You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.

Jesus answered him, Blessed are you, Simon Bar Jonah, for flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but my Father who is in heaven. I also tell you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my assembly, and the gates of Hades will not prevail against it. I will give to you the keys of the Kingdom of Heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will have been bound in heaven, and whatever you release on earth will have been released in heaven. Then he commanded the disciples that they should tell no one that he was Jesus the Christ. From that time, Jesus began to show his disciples that he must go to Jerusalem and suffer many things from the elders, chief priests, and scribes, and be killed, and the third day be raised up.

Peter took him aside, and began to rebuke him, saying, Far be it from you, Lord! This will never be done to you.

But he turned, and said to Peter, Get behind me, Satan! You are a stumbling block to me, for you are not setting your mind on the things of God, but on the things of men.

Luke 9:18-22

It happened, as he was praying alone, that the disciples were with him, and he asked them, Who do the multitudes say that I am?

They answered, John the Baptist, but others say, Elijah, and others, that one of the old prophets is risen again.

He said to them, But who do you say that I am?

Peter answered, The Christ of God.

But he warned them, and commanded them to tell this to no one, saying, The Son of Man must suffer many things, and be rejected by the elders, chief priests, and scribes, and be killed, and the third day be raised up.

John 6:66-69

At this, many of his disciples went back, and walked no more with him. Jesus said therefore to the twelve, You donโ€™t also want to go away, do you?

Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom would we go? You have the words of eternal life. We have come to believe and know that you are the Christ, the Son of the living God.
