Much of our study so far has been stories where people were challenged to think about the true identity of Jesus of Nazareth. Note in the following references some of the different ideas:
In Today’s Lesson Jesus asks the apostles who do men say that I am? What were some of the ideas?
Then he asks who do YOU say that I am. What is Peter’s answer?
After commending Peter’s correct answer, what surprising thing does Jesus tell the apostles to do in verse 20? Why do you think He said this?
In verse 21, what unexpected thing does he tell them is going to happen?
What does Jesus go on to say that dispels the notion that He would be an earthly king and that followers would experience earthly prosperity? (24-25)
