Rev Richard Koehneke


Matthew 16:21-28


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! This
shall never happen to you.” 23 But he turned and said to Peter, “Get behind
me, Satan! You are a hindrance to me. For you are not setting your mind
on the things of God, but on the things of man.” 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 life will lose it, but
whoever loses his life for my sake will find it. 26 For what will it profit a man
if he gains the whole world and forfeits his life? Or what shall a man give in
return for his life? 27 For the Son of Man is going to come with his angels in
the glory of his Father, and then he will repay each person according to what
he has done. 28 Truly, I say to you, there are some standing here who will
not taste death until they see the Son of Man coming in his kingdom.”
