Matthew 16:13-17 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

Peter’s Confession of the Messiah

13 When Jesus came to the region of Caesarea Philippi,[a] He asked His disciples, “Who do people say that the Son of Man is?”[b]

14 And they said, “Some say John the Baptist; others, Elijah; still others, Jeremiah or one of the prophets.”

15 “But you,” He asked them, “who do you say that I am?”

16 Simon Peter answered, “You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God!”

17 And Jesus responded, “Simon son of Jonah,[c] you are blessed because flesh and blood did not reveal this to you, but My Father in heaven.
