None of Christ’s miracles are recorded in this chapter, but four of his discourses. Here is, I. A conference with the Pharisees, who challenged him to show them a sign from heaven, Matt. 16:1-4. II. Another with his disciples about the leaven of the Pharisees, Matt. 16:5-12. III. Another with them concerning himself, as the Christ, and concerning his church built upon him, Matt. 16:13-20. IV. Another concerning his sufferings for them, and theirs for him, Matt. 16:21-28. And all these are written for our learning.
