CEBCommon English Bible
21From that time Jesus began to show his disciples that he had to go to Jerusalem and suffer many things from the elders, chief priests, and legal experts, and that he had to be killed and raised on the third day. 22Then Peter took hold of Jesus and, scolding him, began to correct him: "God forbid, Lord! This won’t happen to you." 23But he turned to Peter and said, "Get behind me, Satan. You are a stone that could make me stumble, for you are not thinking God’s thoughts but human thoughts."
Saving and losing life
24Then Jesus said to his disciples, "All who want to come after me must say no to themselves, take up their cross, and follow me. 25 All who want to save their lives will lose them. But all who lose their lives because of me will find them. 26 Why would people gain the whole world but lose their lives? What will people give in exchange for their lives? 27 For the Human One#Or Son of Man is about to come with the majesty of his Father with his angels. And then he will repay each one for what that person has done. 28 I assure you that some standing here won’t die before they see the Human One#Or Son of Man coming in his kingdom."
