“From that time Jesus began to show to his disciples…” Now that the disciples know that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God (Matt. 16:13-17; Mark 8:27-30; Luke 9:18-21), Jesus begins to tell them that he must suffer, die, and be raised from the dead. In spite of his clear teaching about it, however, they did not understand what he meant, and in the next verse (Matt. 16:22) Peter even tried to stop Jesus from voicing it. [For more on Jesus’ clear teaching that he would suffer and die, see commentary on Luke 18:34].
