Life of Jesus
He Must Go to Jerusalem and Be Killed
Mat 16:21-28; Mk 8:31-38; 9:1; Lk 9:21-27
21 From that time Jesus began to show to His disciples that He must go to
Jerusalem, and suffer many things from the elders and chief priests and scribes, and
be killed, and be raised the third day.
22 Then Peter took Him aside and began to rebuke Him, saying, "Far be it from
You, Lord; this shall not happen to You!"
23 But He turned and said to Peter, "Get behind Me, Satan! You are an offense to
Me, for you are not mindful of the things of God, but the things of men."
24 Then Jesus said to His disciples, "If anyone desires to come after Me, let him
deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me.
25 "For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life
for My sake will find it.
26 "For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own
soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul?
- "For the Son of Man will come in the glory of His Father with His angels, and
then He will reward each according to his works.
- "Assuredly, I say to you, there are some standing here who shall not taste
death till they see the Son of Man coming in His kingdom."
31 And He began to teach them that the Son of Man must suffer many things, and be
rejected by the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and after
three days rise again.
32 He spoke this word openly. And Peter took Him aside and began to rebuke Him.
33 But when He had turned around and looked at His disciples, He rebuked Peter,
saying, "Get behind Me, Satan! For you are not mindful of the things of God, but
the things of men."
34 When He had called the people to Himself, with His disciples also, He said to
them, "Whoever desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his
cross, and follow Me.
35 "For whoever desires 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 will it profit a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own
37 "Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul?
38 "For whoever is ashamed of Me and My words in this adulterous and sinful
generation, of him the Son of Man also will be ashamed when He comes in the glory of
His Father with the holy angels."
- And He said to them, "Assuredly, I say to you that there are some standing
here who will not taste death till they see the kingdom of God present with power."
21 So He asked his father, "How long has this been happening to him?" And he
said, "From childhood.
22 "And often he has thrown him both into the fire and into the water to destroy
him. But if You can do anything, have compassion on us and help us."
23 Jesus said to him, "If you can believe, all things are possible to him who
24 Immediately the father of the child cried out and said with tears, "Lord, I
believe; help my unbelief!"
25 When Jesus saw that the people came running together, He rebuked the unclean
spirit, saying to it, "Deaf and dumb spirit, I command you, come out of him and
enter him no more!"
26 Then the spirit cried out, convulsed him greatly, and came out of him. And he
became as one dead, so that many said, "He is dead."
27 But Jesus took him by the hand and lifted him up, and he arose.
