Visit To Caesarea Philippi

About this time Jesus, with his disciples, left the people on the west side of the lake, and entering a boat, again went over to the east side. "Now the disciples had forgotten to take bread, neither had they in the ship with them more than one loaf." And as they were on the way over, Jesus charged them saying,  "Take heed, beware of the leaven of the Pharisees, and of the leaven of Herod. And they reasoned among themselves, saying, It is because we have no bread. And when Jesus knew it, he said unto them, Why reason ye, because ye have no bread? Perceive ye not yet, neither understand? Have ye your heart yet hardened? Having eyes, see ye not? And having ears, hear ye not? And do ye not remember? When I brake the five loaves among five thousand, how many baskets full of fragments took ye up?  They said unto him, Twelve. And when the seven among four thousand, how many baskets full of fragments took ye up? 

And they said, Seven." He then asked them if they did not yet understand that he spake not to them of the leaven of bread, but meant to warn them against the false doctrines of the Pharisees.  

And when they had come to the other side of the sea, to Bethsaida, the people brought a blind man to Jesus, and begged him to heal him. "And he took the blind man by the hand, and led him out of the town; and when he had spit on his eyes, and put his hands upon him, he asked him if he saw aught. And he looked up and said, I see men as trees walking. After that, he put his hands again upon his eyes, and made him look up; and he was restored, and saw every man clearly. And he sent him away to his house, saying, Neither go into the town, nor tell it to any in the town." 

On leaving Bethsaida, Jesus and his disciples went north into the region of Caesarea Philippi. And while they were on the way, he asked his disciples saying, "Whom do men say that I am? And he answered, John the Baptist; but some say Elias, and others, One of the prophets. And he said unto them, But whom say ye that I am? 

And Peter answered and said unto him, Thou art the Christ." 

He then charged them that they should tell no man of him, that he was the Christ.

And he began to teach his disciples "that the Son of man must suffer many things, and be rejected of the elders, and of the chief priests, and the scribes, and be killed, and after three days, rise again."  And when he had called the people unto him, with his disciples also, he said unto them: "if any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me. For whosoever will save his life shall lose it; but whosoever will lose his life for my sake, the same shall save it.  For what is a man advantaged [profited], if he gain the whole world, and lose himself, or be cast away? For whosoever shall be ashamed of me and of my words, of him shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he shall come in his own glory, and in his Father's, and of the holy angels But I tell you of a truth, there be some standing here, which shall not taste of death, till they see the kingdom of God."
