The Triumphant Liberating King– Matthew 16:21-15
The “who do you say I am?” passage that precedes this one shows Jesus affirming Peter’s claim that He is the ‘Christ’, Son of the Living God. However in this very next section Jesus is strongly rebuking Peter for getting his identity and purpose completely wrong. What gives? Jesus’ talk of being both the Messiah and having to head to Jerusalem to suffer and die is TOO confusing!
