The Pharisees Desire a Sign from Heaven (vv.10-13)

10 And immediately going on board ship with his disciples, he came into the parts of Dalmanutha. 11 And the Pharisees went out and began to dispute against him, seeking from him a sign from heaven, tempting him. 12 And groaning in his spirit, he says, Why does this generation seek a sign? Verily I say unto you, A sign shall in no wise be given to this generation. 13 And he left them, and going again on board ship, went away to the other side. 

Warning the Disciples about the Leaven of the Pharisees and Herod (vv.14-21)

14 And they forgot to take bread, and save one loaf, they had not any with them in the ship. 15 And he charged them, saying, Take heed, beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the leaven of Herod. 16 And they reasoned with one another, saying, It is because we have no bread. 17 And Jesus knowing it, says to them, Why reason ye because ye have no bread? Do ye not yet perceive nor understand? Have ye your heart yet hardened? 18 Having eyes, see ye not? and having ears, hear ye not? and do ye not remember? 19 When I broke the five loaves for the five thousand, how many hand-baskets full of fragments took ye up? They say to him, Twelve. 20 And when the seven for the four thousand, the filling of how many baskets of fragments took ye up? And they said, Seven. 21 And he said to them, How do ye not yet understand? 

Healing of the Blind Man in Bethsaida (vv.22-26)

22 And he comes to Bethsaida; and they bring him a blind man, and beseech him that he might touch him. 23 And taking hold of the hand of the blind man he led him forth out of the village, and having spit upon his eyes, he laid his hands upon him, and asked him if he beheld anything. 24 And having looked up, he said, I behold men, for I see them, as trees, walking. 25 Then he laid his hands again upon his eyes, and he saw distinctly, and was restored and saw all things clearly. 26 And he sent him to his house, saying, Neither enter into the village, nor tell it to any one in the village.

27 And Jesus went forth and his disciples, into the villages of Caesarea-Philippi. And by the way he asked his disciples, saying unto them, Who do men say that I am? 28 And they answered him, saying, John the baptist; and others, Elias; but others, One of the prophets. 29 And he asked them, But “ye”, who do ye say that I am? And Peter answering says to him, “Thou” art the Christ. 30 And he charged them straitly, in order that they should tell no man about him.

32 And he spoke the thing openly. And Peter, taking him to him, began to rebuke him. 33 But he, turning round and seeing his disciples, rebuked Peter, saying, Get away behind me, Satan, for thy mind is not on the things that are of God, but on the things that are of men. 

Ministry to the Crowd and His Disciples: Devotion to Christ (vv.34-38)

34 And having called the crowd with his disciples, he said to them, Whoever desires to come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross and follow me. 35 For whosoever shall desire to save his life shall lose it, but whosoever shall lose his life for my sake and the gospel’s shall save it. 36 For what shall it profit a man if he gain the whole world and suffer the loss of his soul? 37 for what should a man give in exchange for his soul? 38 For whosoever shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation, of him shall the Son of man also be ashamed when he shall come in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.

Declaration that Some Would See the Kingdom of God in Power (v.1)

And he said to them, Verily I say unto you, There are some of those standing here that shall not taste death until they shall have seen the kingdom of God come in power. 

The Transfiguration Scene (vv.2-3)

2 And after six days Jesus takes with him Peter and James and John, and takes them up on a high mountain by themselves apart. And he was transfigured before them: 3 and his garments became shining, exceeding white as snow, such as fuller on earth could not whiten them

Moses and Elias Appear, Peter’s Blunder (vv.4-6)

4 And there appeared to them Elias with Moses, and they were talking with Jesus. 5 And Peter answering says to Jesus, Rabbi, it is good that we should be here; and let us make three tabernacles, for thee one, and for Moses one, and for Elias one. 6 For he knew not what he should say, for they were filled with fear. 

The Voice From Heaven (vv.7-8)

7 And there came a cloud overshadowing them, and there came a voice out of the cloud, “This” is my beloved Son: hear him. 8 And suddenly having looked around, they no longer saw any one, but Jesus alone with themselves. 

Instructions on the Descent (vv.9-10)

9 And as they descended from the mountain, he charged them that they should relate to no one what they had seen, unless when the Son of man should be risen from among the dead. 10 And they kept that saying, questioning among themselves, what rising from among the dead was. 

The Disciples’ Question about Elias (vv.11-13)

11 And they asked him saying, Why do the scribes say that Elias must first have come? 12 And he answering said to them, Elias indeed, having first come, restores all things; and how is it written of the Son of man that he must suffer much, and be set at nought: 13 but I say unto you that Elias also is come, and they have done to him whatever they would, as it is written of him.
