that i 1d only against two of the thirteen the others being killed for insolence or other minor causes It may do little or no good to call public at tention to these wrongs yet it is hoped in some way

terrach and named by him i honor of Tiberias and it was cane C sarea Philipi to distinguish i from the Casarea on the sea coas Luke tells Jesus had been engaged in prayer just before he asked this question They were on tne road when he spoke a Whom do men say that 1alii He of course knew just what men said and thought of him His e leading the minds of his disciples to the open confession it was now best for them to make from that day to this men have saying something ol Jesus whom even his enemies cannct forget and iignore Itt is probable he had reference to t1 expressed opinion not so much of his enemies as of the multitudes who followed him many oi whom professed to be his disciples And they answered some John the HIif list some Elias and others one of the prophets They all recognizrd that Jesus was no ordinary man or teacher but seem to have considered him rather a forerunner of the Messiah than the Messiah himselff Herod though huts John the Baptist risen horn the dead Elijah had gone to heaven without death i and from Malachis prophecy t- a Jews looked lor him to retu p- J Tney had had no prophet for f hundred year but they knew themselves to be Gods chi sen peo pIe to whom

Upon an answer to it here depends our eternal life yonder AndI Peter answcrcth and sayetk unto him Thug art the ChristPeter was the spokesman of the apostles and no doubt the others united with him in these words It goes to prove that this is indeed Peters gospel that the blessing that I esus spoke to Peter is not given here as in Matthew We are told by Matthew that our Lord declared Peter had not learned this great truth of his own d1 cerment but by revelati n of the Father and no man has evor ac savinghishis of darkened understanding 1 And he charged tutu that they should tell no man oj hint The word translated charged is a very emphatic one It would not do in the state of mind in which the peo pIe for Jesus to proclaim himself their Messiah Theiy were ready as it was to take him by force and make him their king After his death when they could see the Messiahas was to be no car conqueror with a kingdom of this proclaimthis everywhere And DespitetheirJ these disciples still cheerished kingdom death would be to their faith fJesus prepares thim for it The San hedrim the ruling power of t nation was compqs eelIclassesthe elders or the head of synagogues the chief priests or heads cf the twenyfour classes of- men f priests and the scribes or learned in that law Thus our Lord t trf showed that the whole nation I though their rnless would reject him That the Sot oj Man must sit fer

how imp llect Peters ideas were of his Master or he would no have dared to rebuke kim The Greek shows that Peter took hold of hires and drew him a little to one side and that Jesus turned suddenly andj looked keenly at all the disciples He spoke so as to be heard by them all let iliac behind me iIirlt It shows Peters true h hetells frankly of our Lords stern rebuke while omitting the blessing which had gone before I es U5dwould endure noinptrtinence from his chief Apostle even the Sera I phim veil their faces in his presence The Lord recognizes the I one who speaks to him w th Peters voice It is the old tempter who he had met in the wilderness come now once more to attack him and make him give up his purpose off redeeming lost men Satan out uses those who love us best bemCbrirnSt dido 1

things of God what a terriible thing it would have been for Pe t himself if he had obtained his wish even though Jesus had conquered I seatIon his right hand For if Jesus did not die to atone for Peters si Peter would nave been lost He would have given his soul to gain the world If we could have our sown way how often would we stroy our souls as ignorantly l Peter would have destroyed Had
