No.50.-[Lesson 47.]—Jesus visits the vicinity of Cæsarea Philippi; he inquires of his

disciples, first, whom the people, and then whom they themselves, considered him to be ;
Peter answers in the name of the rest: confessing Jesus to be the Christ. Jesus promises
them a further opening into this great FOUNDATION TRUTH: until which they are to
tell no man that he is the Christ.

From this time forward Jesus begins to foretell his sufferings and death, circumstantially,

to the disciples : Peter expostulates with him, and is sharply rebuked : Jesus takes occasion thence to discourse both to his disciples and to the people on the duty of selfdenial and taking up the cross, and proceeds to speak of the glory, promising a view of the coming kingdom.
