Luke 9:18-27 New American Standard Bible

Peter's Declaration

18  And it happened that while He was praying alone , the disciples were with Him, and He questioned them, saying , "Who do the people say that I am ?" 19  They answered and said , "John the Baptist , and others say Elijah ; but others , that one of the prophets of old has risen again ." 20  And He said to them, "But who do you say that I am ?" And Peter answered and said , " The Christ of God ."

Jesus Foretells His Death

21  But He warned them and instructed them not to tell this to anyone , 22  saying , " The Son of Man must suffer many things and be rejected by the elders and chief priests and scribes , and be killed and be raised up on the third day ." 23  And He was saying to them all , " If anyone wishes to come after Me, he must deny himself , and take up his cross daily e and follow Me. 24  "For whoever e wishes to save his life will lose it, but whoever e loses his life for My sake , he is the one who will save it. 25  "For what is a man profited if he gains the whole world , and loses or forfeits himself ? 26  " For whoever e is ashamed of Me and My words , the Son of Man will be ashamed of him when He comes in His glory , and the glory of the Father and of the holy angels . 27  "But I say to you truthfully , there are some of those standing here who will not taste death until they see the kingdom of God ."
