|“But who do you say that I am?”|
They thought he was John the Baptist, Jeremiah, some famous prophet, and bold Peter says it all “You are the
Messiah!” and after a few moments bold Peter gets told off and is called a devil by Jesus – “Get behind me Satan”
because he doesn’t want the Messiah to suffer.
Of course Jesus’ mission was suffering.
Jesus show us who you are, let us join with Peter in calling you the Messiah – our Saviour.
