Matthew 16:21–26 (Listen)

Jesus Foretells His Death and Resurrection

21 From that time Jesus began to show his disciples that he must go to Jerusalem and suffer many things from the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and on the third day be raised. 22 And Peter took him aside and began to rebuke him, saying, “Far be it from you, Lord!23 But he turned and said to Peter, “Get behind me, Satan! You are a hindranceTake Up Your Cross and Follow Jesus

24 Then Jesus told his disciples, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. 25 For whoever would save his life26 For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and forfeits his soul? Or what shall a man give in return for his soul?
