Matt. 16:13-17

13 When Jesus came into the coasts of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, saying, Whom do men say that I the Son of man am?

14 And they said, Some say that thou art John the Baptist: some, Elias; and others, Jeremias, or one of the prophets.

15 He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am?

16 And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.

17 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven.

What is your comment on v.13, on the matter that Jesus have to say and have to mention that he is the Son of man when he could just have asked "whom say ye that I am?" as he did in v.15?

And what do you see in Peter's response in v.16 in relation to that?

What do you see in v.17, on what Jesus said regarding Peter's answer?

      1. No, Jesus did not have to say again he is the Son of a human. - Tomas on May 13, 2017, 10:58 PM

          1. OK, you have a good point about why Jesus chose to say here he is the Son of a human. - Tomas on May 28, 2017, 2:04 AM

              1. So if the story in Mt. 14 precedes Mt. 16 chronologically, as you seem to think it does... - Tomas on Jun 10, 2017, 9:50 PM
