It was important to Jesus that these people have time to think and process the events of their training. He asked them some questions: (Matthew 16:13-15) who do men say that I the Son of Man am? But who say ye that I am? We don’t know for sure specifically what answers Jesus was looking for, but Peter seemed right on target (Matthew 16:16-19}. It is clear that Jesus wanted those he was grooming to develop their theological understanding, which had to begin with an awareness of who Jesus was. The opening comments reflecting the thinking of the people: Jesus was a Jew and his was meant to be an extension of the Hebrew Religion. Only Peter knew that Jesus was the Son of the Living God. Let’s hope that things are different today.
