Mark 8:27-33 – Death Foretold in Caesarea

|| Matthew 16:13-20;[1] Luke 9:18-21

MK8:27 Now Jesus left with his disciples into the towns of Caesarea Philippi. And along the way he asked his disciples: “Who are people saying I am?” MK8:28 They answered: “John the Baptist.” But others said, “Elijah.” [Malachi 4:1] Still others: “One of the prophets.” MK8:29 Then Jesus asked them: “But, who do you say I am?” And Peter responded: “You are the Christ!” [Daniel 9:25-27] MK8:30 Now Jesus gave them strict orders[2] not to tell any one about him. MK8:31 So Jesus began to teach them that the Son of Humankind [Daniel 7:13] must suffer many things [Isaiah 53:2, 3] and then be rejected [Psalm 118:22] by the [Jewish] elders, the chief priests, and the Bible Copyists. Finally, he would be killed, [Psalm 22:15] but after three days be resurrected. MK8:32 And Jesus spoke plainly to them.[3] But Peter took him aside and began to rebuke[4] him. MK8:33 Then Jesus turned around and looking at his disciples[5] he said to Peter: “Get behind me, Satan! For you are not thinking God’s thoughts but those of men!”


[1] Matthew 16:13-20: For details see notes in Nazarene Commentary 2000 on Matthew.

[2] Strict orders: Or, charged, admonished, warned. Jesus does not give them a polite suggestion. The Greek is EPETIMESEN [Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance #2008, ax upon, censure, rebuke] and usually means a “rebuke” just as Peter does in verse 32.

[3] Jesus spoke plainly to them: In his language Jesus references several phrases from the Hebrew Bible.

[4] Rebuke: Some men with too much pride, when rebuked, attempt to do the same thing to the one who has rebuked them. Who does Peter think he is? He reveals a depth of arrogance that will one day be humiliated out of him.

[5] Looking at his disciples: This is not private as Peter’s wrong rebuke, but in front of all of them.
